Making powder technology first choice

Our vision is to make metal powder technology the first choice by helping customers and end-users to utilise the inherent "power" of metal powders. We call this vision Power of Powder®. 

A key to successful product development and industrialisation is the intimate work with material, process and design. Höganäs can realise this by opening up for close collaborations in the PoP Centre.

The PoP Centre

The PoP Centre provides a platform for cross-functional work of different companies and competencies to work in all parts of the value chain from a desktop idea to a finished product.

The materials expertise to select the right powder solution.

The design support to create innovative PM applications.

The process know-how to ensure optimum production efficiency and quality.
