Powder metallurgy utilizes uniaxial compaction, also known as sintering technology. This technology competes with deep drawing, precision moulding, forging and sheet design, including punching.In comparison to the other processes, sintering technology excels in simplicity.
The powder metallurgy process holds advantages for a wide range of stainless steel grades. The process consists of the following steps:
Sintering takes place in a controlled atmosphere in high-technology sintering furnaces at high temperatures. During the sintering process, the powder particles bind together via an atomic diffusion process, giving the component its final form and strength, as well as the high corrosion resistance that has been developed at Sintex.
At Sintex, we have extensive experience with calibration, and can ensure component tolerances down to just a few microns. We also offer services such as deburring, machining and impregnation.
Automotive customer finds solution for strict material and quality requirements at Sintex, using powder metallurgy solutions matching their specific needs.
