    Powder Metallurgy: The original net-shape production process

    Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

    The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

    To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
