Advantages of Using Powdered Metal


A low cost mass production method of manufacturing high quality, strong complex parts.

  • Economical and environmentally clean

  • Maintain close dimensional tolerances, achieve “net” shaping

  • Provides a good surface finish

  • Eliminates or minimizes machining or assembly operations

  • Availability of a wide variety of alloyed materials

  • Provides materials which may be heat treated for increased strength or wear resistance

  • Reduce scrap losses

  • Provides controlled porosity for self lubrication

  • Facilitates manufacturing of complex or unique shapes which would be impractical or impossible with other metal forming processes
