Powder Metallurgy 

Near Net Shapes / Solid Powder Metallurgical Steel

Powder must be encapsulated – so that gas pressure and heat can be uniformly applied to all surfaces during hot pressing—when producing metallurgical parts.  After densification, the capsule is stripped. Quality is assured by ultrasonic measuring and analysis of the polished section. Parts can then be machined to your specifications.
