Components with complex designs
Create competitive parts with complex design from metal powder
A component with a complex design is often challenging to manufacture and every industry has its challenges regarding complex designs of vital components.
You face questions like these about your complex design: How do I optimise the design to obtain the best manufacturability? What production technique is best suited for my specific component when balancing cost vs high performance? What type of material could give the complex design unique advantages in terms of strength and durability? How can I integrate several components into one single sintered component, saving cost and facilitating assembly?
Good formability and additive technique
High formability is key when finding the right material and production method for a complex design. Producing components by pressing and sintering metal powder is a competitive method for a number of applications compared to other production technologies, especially for complex part geometries. The pressing tool that compacts the part is well suited to be designed for very intricate components, such as transmission carriers, sprockets and gears. Actually, just about any complicated geometry can be achieved when you use sintering technology.
The compaction of metal powder in a press followed by a strengthening step in a sintering furnace is an additive manufacturing method. It has many advantages compared to a subtractive manufacturing technology. Compaction and sintering mean less process steps, less machining and less waste of material and energy in production. This all adds up to a low total cost solution for your component with a complex design.
