Sintering

L’eccellenza sta nella passione per i dettagli

Quality and precision

High degree of surface finish

Sintering is a process of powder metallurgy that involves the production of a hard, solid metal or ceramic piece from a starting powder.

Sintering offers the possibility of net-shape production of components with complicated geometries without subsequent machining.

Industry sectors:

Oleo-dynamic industry, power transmission, automotive, automation, textile machinery and furniture sector.

Products:

Self-lubricating sintered bearings, gears (made for a wide variety of markets) motor hubs, inserts for the plastic industry, custom-designed structural part.

Materials:

Carbon steel, stainless steel, bronze, various ferrous alloys.

Flexibility of use

Advantages of Sintering:

  • Near net shape forming process, so often no finishing operations are required
  • Flexibility to produce material compositions not possible by other methods
  • Powder metallurgy can produce geometries not possible by processes such as machining
  • The process generates very little scrap
  • Potentially very high production rates, especially compared to machining

High dimensional stability

More advantages of Sintering:

  • Sintered parts may be heat-treated for increased strength or increased wear-resistance
  • Parts can be manufactured with controlled porosity. Further, it is possible to infiltrate these pores either with other materials e.g. lower melting point metals or lubricants
  • High dimensional accuracy
  • Good surface finish
