PM Materials Systems
Powder, Process, Progress
The properties of some PM material systems make machining or casting impractical and cost prohibitive. Powdered metal eliminates those issues, and the wide variety of available alloys to choose from is one of the main benefits of the technology.
One of the main benefits of working with Keystone as your supplier is our industry-leading knowledge of material properties. We listen to your needs and then tailor the material system and processing steps to suit the application requirements, including:
- Wear and corrosion resistance
It is crucial to recognize the tight relationship between material systems and processes. Fully understanding their interaction allows us to control the final properties for every part we produce. In addition, our expertise has brought essential innovations to the industry, such as:
- Theoretically dense powder forged helical pinions
- Theoretically dense, powder forged and sinter hardened sprockets
- Wear resistant and corrosion resistant exhaust gas recirculation guides
Are you looking to improve the production process or characteristics for your parts? Whether you have an existing product or you are pioneering an innovative application, our materials experts are ready to find you the ideal material system to suit your needs.
