Speciality Sintered Products PVT Ltd (SSPL), Pune, India, has received the Best PM Product Award (Ferrous Components) 2014 from the Powder Metallurgy Association of India (PMAI), for its integrated sensor wheel. The winning component integrates a sensing application and belt drive in one part and offers a cost saving of 30% over the traditional manufacturing process.
SSPL began operations in 2000 and claims to have the largest compaction press in India, an 800 ton Dorst press. The company has also installed a sophisticated Fluidtherm sinter hardening furnace at its facility.
A new plant at Shirwal, located 60 km from Pune, was recently commissioned by SSPL with an annual capacity of some 4000 MT of PM parts, including engine and transmission components.
“When our high temperature sintering facility is installed shortly we will offer the widest range of PM products in India,” stated Mahesh Kamble, Manager Metallurgy, Speciality Sintered Products Pvt Ltd. “Our greatest strength, however, lies in our energetic and young, yet capable, team who see an opportunity in every challenge.”
