Porvair Filtration Group, headquartered in Fareham, Hampshire, UK, has completed the commissioning of a fully integrated Powder Metallurgy production cell at its Caribou, Maine, USA, facility to produce its sintered powder products. The equipment is said to deliver increased capacity, reduced lead time and repeatable product quality.

The production cell integrates metal powder delivery, compaction, quality inspection, statistical process control and parts handling in a single automated cell. The integrated servo-electric press technology enables precision control of dimensional, density, flow and filtration parameters compared with commonly used hydraulic presses.
