Powder metal parts

Miba powder metal parts are used in a wide range of industries. Whether it’s robotics, conveyor technology, compressors, eBikes, medical technology or the automotive sector - the high-precision and high-strength components convince through cost efficiency as well as lower weight. Their use reduces the CO2 footprint.

 

What does sintering mean?

Powder metallurgy is a production process of high-precision molded parts. In the first step the powdery starting material is getting pressed into a compact (also known as a green compact), which only has sufficient strength to be safely transferred to the next process step. During the subsequent heat treatment, the individual powder particles combine and the powder metal part acquires its strength.

 

At the beginning of the powder metallurgy process, mixtures of metal powders are getting pressed with precise tools. The resulting compact is sintered at a temperature of up to 1250°C. To achieve the highest possible precision and density, in some applications the component is calibrated after sintering and - if necessary - heat treated, surface coated, mechanically reworked or assembled.The basis of our global success is the adherence to strict quality standards in the production of our high-precision powder metal part.

  • A production close to final contour ("net shape") avoids additional machining steps
  • High repeatability in series production
Customized products
  • Complex geometries
  • Optimization in terms of strength and weight
  • Tailor-made materials for every requirement
  • Excellent NVH (Noise, Vibration, Harshness) properties
  • Unique magnetic properties
  • Excellent wear resistance
  • Controlled porosity
  • Isotropic properties as well as selectively compacted component areas
High torque capacity through surface compaction
