Mix Concept Engineered for High Precision VVT components

Variable valve timing (VVT) systems allow for the perfect combination of performance increase, better economy and improved emission control. The components used in a VVT system are typically highly complex in design and challenging to manufacture. Therefore, successful large volume production of high-tolerance VVT components requires a metal powder that continuously delivers high quality and consistent results. The powder solution has to be properly designed to optimize powder handling and processing conditions to fulfill product quality and performance requirements at the total lowest cost for the producers in their manufacturing.

With all these aspects in mind a metal powder mix concept specifically engineered for manufacturing of
high precision VVT components has been developed and will be presented in this paper.
