FJ Industries A/S, Denmark, has announced that its FJ Sintermetal AB plant has been approved as a supplier by a global automotive customer. While FJ Industries did not name the customer, it stated that it is “a huge company within the automotive industry, supplying parts for several of the big OEM’s.”

FJ Sintermetal AB is located near Jönköping, Sweden. According to FJ Industries, the customer performed a thorough audit of the plant over two full days during September 2018. “We are extremely proud to announce that we passed the audit,” stated FJ Industries. “We are now looking forward to get the serial production up and running.”

While the majority of the parts manufactured by the plant have until now been non-automotive, FJ Sintermetal has been supplying parts to the automotive industry for a number of years. The automotive share of the business is now expected to increase significantly.

In addition to this recent supplier approval, FJ Sintermetal recently achieved IATF16949 certification, updated from the original 2015 TS16949. The company has reportedly been manufacturing components using Powder Metallurgy for more than thirty years, and also produces cast and machined parts as well as providing design consultancy services to its customers.

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.
