Höganäs AB has announced that as of June 1, 2019, it has fully rebranded its H.C. Starck Surface Technology & Ceramic Powders (STC) division under the main Höganäs brand. Höganäs acquired the STC division from H.C. Starck, along with two production units located in Goslar and Laufenburg, Germany, in March 2018. The name change is said to mark the final milestone in the integration of the two companies into one.

“Together we are a leading provider for all surface and joining technologies, including thermal spraying, hard facing, brazing and welding. As one Höganäs organisation, we utilise our joint forces to invent better solutions for our customers’ current needs and future challenges,” stated Hans Keller, President Product Area Surface & Joining Technologies at Höganäs.

The company stated that it aims to make surface coating a new and strong business division, alongside its metal powder for press and sinter components.  “Now that we are truly one company, Höganäs is one of the largest players in the premium segment of the surface coating market, servicing a broad range of industries, but focusing on automotive, oil and gas, mining and construction, energy and aviation,” added Keller.

“Together, we can and will make a difference for our customers. Höganäs operates in eighteen countries around the globe, meaning that our sales and technical service co-workers are always close to our customers and understand their local and specific needs. We also offer development and testing services in Sweden, Germany, USA, Brazil and China,” he concluded.

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.
