Furnaces for powdered metals and injection mouldingPOWDERED METAL PARTS & METAL INJECTION MOLDING
Powder metal parts are produced from a very fine metal powder that is compressed and sintered to achieve its final shape. Centorr’s Sintervac line of sintering furnaces are ideal for this application. The powder metal manufacturing process makes it possible to create parts with an extremely complex geometry with reduced manufacturing cost. Finished products are small components used in many industries and applications.
