Powder metal parts

Miba powder metal components are used in a wide range of industries. Whether in robotics, conveyor technology, compressors and eBikes, in medical technology or in the automotive sector - the high precision and high strength of these components means they deliver impressive cost efficiency and reduced weight. Their implementation reduces the CO2 footprint.


What is powder metal technology?

Powder metal technology uses several processes to produce high-strength and high-precision parts. First the Miba mixed powder metal material is pressed with in-house built precision tools to form a compact (also called a green compact), which has sufficient strength to be safely handled to the next process step. Then in the next process step the compact is sintered at a temperature of up to 1250°C. During the heat treatment, the individual powder particles combine and the powder metal component acquires its strength.


To achieve the highest possible precision and density, for some applications the component is sized after sintering and - if necessary - heat-treated, surface-coated, mechanically reworked or assembled.

The advantages of powder metal technology

Compared to other manufacturing processes, powder metal technology enables maximum utilization of the material with the lowest possible energy consumption.

Cost-efficient solutions
  • Maximum utilization of raw materials with lowest energy consumption compared to other technologies
  • 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
