Advantages of Using Powdered Metal

A low cost mass production method of manufacturing high quality, strong complex parts.

1. Economical and environmentally clean

2. Maintain close dimensional tolerances, achieve "net" shaping

3. Provides a good surface finish

4. Eliminates or minimizes machining or assembly operations

5. Availability of a wide variety of alloyed materials

6. Provides materials which may be heat treated for increased strength or wear resistance

7. Reduce scrap losse

8.Provides controlled porosity for self lubricatio

Facilitates manufacturing of complex or unique shapes which would be impractical or impossible with other metal forming processes

A simple process with fine tolerances

High-density

100% sealed components

High strength and ductilit

High corrosion resistance

Good welding characteristics
