Powder metal technology for your industry

Whether robotics, motorcycles, hydraulics or industrial and building automation, our high-precision and high-strength powder metal parts are used in a wide variety of industries and applications. In these industries, powder metal technology ensures cost savings in production, reduced weight, and an improved environmental balance. With Miba as a technology leader in this field, you benefit from individual solutions tailored to your needs.

 

Advantages of powder metal technology

Complex geometries can be produced faster with powder metal technology than with machined steel, for example. Thanks to surface densification processes, we can almost achieve the strength of solid steel on the surface of our components. This makes powder metal parts almost as resistant as forged and machined components.

Powder metal technology is also characterized by high process stability. Material utilization is nearly 100%. The powder used is made from recycled steel scrap, which significantly reduces the CO2 footprint. The necessary energy demand is also lower than with other technologies.

For an overview of the many advantages of powder metal technology, see our article Advantages of Powder Metallurgy and Sintering.

Powder metal technology for e-bikes

The electrification of single- and multi-track bicycles plays an essential role in achieving climate-neutral individual transportation. Therefore it’s obvious that only the technology with the lowest material and energy requirements should come into play here.

 

Miba develops and produces mechanical components for transmission systems for e-drives. Thanks to the unique advantages of the material, the manufacturing process as well as  Miba's expertise, these sintered parts meet on the one hand the highest load requirements whilst on the other hand enable smooth and silent operation.

 

 

Powder metal technology for SMC

The Miba Group is working intensely on the development of axial flux machines, electric motors with special performance characteristics, especially at low speeds.

Soft Magnetic Composite (SMC) materials are one of the materials used. Miba Sinter Group combines comprehensive materials expertise with unique application experience in the design and development of e-machines, offering customers decisive added value.

 

Today, we produce SMC components for a wide range of applications worldwide, both for traction and auxiliary drives.
