The high precision forming capability of PM generates components with near net shape, intricate features and close dimensional precision, finished without the need of machining.
PM is especially suited to the production of large series of pieces with narrow tolerances. By producing parts with a homogeneous structure PM enables manufacturers to make products that are more consistent and predictable in their behaviour across a wide range of applications.
Thanks to its process flexibility PM allows the tailoring of the physical characteristics of a product to suit your specific property and performance requirements. Good performance in stress and absorbing of vibrations as well as special properties such as hardness and wear resistance are a feature of PM components.
A selection of PM products can be seen on the Spotlight on PM case studies.
