Characteristics & Comparison with Other Production Methods

What is Powder Metallurgy?….

It is the process of compacting blended powdered material and then heating and bonding it in the metal part production

Characteristics

1. Economically efficient
High precision die enables us to produce a part with "Near Net Shape" closed to its final dimension even for a complicated shape product. This helps the reduction of raw material costs and makes processes more efficient.
2. High Productivity
The continuous production with die makes mass production and high yield ratio possible
3. Peculiarity
Change of the blended powder composition can provide a variety of mechanical characteristics to satisfy customer requirements. Control of the structure is also possible by changing production condition to meet the requirements for many applications.
