Long-Term Reliability in Critical Applications
Understanding Our Process
Enhanced Sintered Products, Inc. uses a highly developed method of manufacturing ferrous and nonferrous parts. In our facility in St. Marys PA, we mix elemental and alloy powders and compact the mixture into a die. What results from this process is then sintered or heated in a furnace, in a controlled environment, which bonds the particles metallurgically. This process uses more than 97% of the starting raw material in the finished product. What does this mean for you? It’s an energy, cost, and materials-saving process.
The powder metallurgy process can produce both simple and complex parts at, or very close to, final dimensions in production rates ranging from a few hundred to several thousand parts per hour. Because of this, machining is minimal. Also, powder metallurgical parts may be sized for closer dimensional control and coined for both higher density and strength.
