Powder Processing

In powder processing, metal powder is generally squeezed, sintered and/or sprayed to form parts, sheet or plate, allowing great control over the final composition of the end product, its properties and yield.

Why Powder Processing?

  • Reduce design production time
  • Improve Performance
  • Reduce production steps and scrap
  • Broaden and diversity supply chain
  • Create opportunities to mix metals precisely to generate specific properties
  • Cut machining and materials costs for complex components
  • Allow new uses for lightweight materials
