Core Competencies

PM Engineering Solutions is a leader in the following areas of expertise:


Complex Part Geometry

Complex Geometries:

  • Helical Gears
  • Planetary Gears
  • Cluster Gears
  • Lock Collars
  • Shift Mechanism
  • Pulleys
  • Firearm Components
  • Hand Tool

PM Product and Design Engineering

Unique Designs Allow:

  • Net shape capabilities not found in other metal working processes
  • Features pressed into parts that would normally be machined in resulting in lower customer part costs
  • Consistent dimensional and mechanical properties
  • Low to high volume manufacturing
  • Consistent part quality

Hot Powder Forging

Hot Powder forging is a process in which powders such as iron and copper are compacted, heated and forged so that their density increases up to that of wrought steel.

Since they're made using a net-shape technology, PF parts require only minor secondary machining and offer greater dimensional precision and less flash than conventional precision forgings. More...


High Temperature Sintering

High Temperature Sintering:
Sintering above 1150° C (2100° F) up to 1350 ° C (2500 ° F)

Enhanced functional component properties include:
tensile strength, ductility, fatigue, impact strength, corrosion resistance, soft magnetism

Essential to optimize the properties of Stainless Steel and Aluminum Components

Soft magnetic steels improve magnetic performance under the influence of external magnetic fields

Typical High Temp Sinter Components:
Soft Magnetic, Stainless Steel, Aluminum, High Strength Nickel Steel Applications


Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel:

  • 300 Series
  • Best corrosion resistance.
  • Non-magnetic, so can be used for shielding purposes

400 Series:

  • Moderate corrosion resistance.
  • Magnetic, can be used in solenoid and ABS applications
  • Heat treated for high strength and hardness

409Cb is used for exhaust system components because oxidation resistance

Thermoset/Thermoplastic Parts

Capable of addressing a wide range of Thermoset and thermoplastic parts-- custom molded from a diverse array of commercially available resins. Includes glass filled and heat resistant materials. More...
