Powder Forging

Powder Metal

Powder metallurgy, or PM, is a process for forming metal parts by heating compacted metal powders to just below their melting points. Although the process has existed for more than 100 years, over the past quarter century it has become widely recognized as a superior way of producing high-quality parts for a variety of important applications. This success is due to the advantages the process offers over other metal forming technologies such as forging and metal casting, advantages in material utilization, shape complexity, near-net-shape dimensional control, among others.


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
