Gestión de Compras provides products manufactured by powder metallurgy. This process essentially uses heat and pressure to form complex shapes and precise parts, both ferrous and nonferrous metals.
Process of powder metallurgy
Powder metallurgy is a process of making parts from materials such as stainless steel, carbon steel, tungsten or aluminum. By this operation is possible manufacture pieces of materials with high melting points, such as tungsten, or even mix powders of different natures.
This process is suitable for the production of a large number of pieces that, due to their small size or complicated design, require high precision. It is also suitable as needed further controlling the permeability or porosity of the final piece. The use of such parts is very common in machinery and industrial equipment, automotive or the armory. More specifically, are parts such as bearings, pistons or valves.
Powder metallurgy requires a multistep process, as follows.
