Precision Finishing for Powdered Metals
Powder metal components are made from a variety of materials and are used in a wide range of industries, most notably automotive.
Parts made from powder metal have unique characteristics that require specific finishing processes. Powder metal parts are generally softer and more porous than those made from regular metal. Fixed abrasive processes including grinding and fine grinding / flat honing are particularly ideal because the powder metal parts have reduced surface contamination and require less cleaning. In addition, powder metal parts require special metrology equipment to measure key parameters.
