The Right Powder Metal Materials For Your Application

metal powders for pressing pm parts
You have your component designed. You know it will function mechanically in your assembly, but will the component hold up to the rigorous testing? Will the part go through the thousands of cycles without wearing out or fatiguing?

At Vision Quality Components Inc., we have the experience you require to design a custom material along with a process that will give you the best product for your application.

The right mix: Our Materials Engineer will help you choose the right Powder Metal mix to give your component the properties it needs, while ensuring the lowest possible cost.

We offer the following materials for providing the properties you require in your applications:

  • Pressed up to a density of 7.4 gms/cc
  • Excellent strengths, tensile to 210,000 PSI
  • Heat treated for exceptional wear, micro-hardness to RC 60
  • Cost Effective replacement for most machined wrought steel parts, iron cast parts, investment cast parts, copper infiltrated PM parts, and double pressed and double sintered PM parts

Vision has consistently been the best supplier partner for powder metal components throughout my career. Tapping into their technical expertise has driven our designs on multiple applications, allowing us to lower costs, increase feasibility, and increase part quality. Even when nonfeasible designs are presented, Vision will go the extra mile to reengineer or use cutting edge technology to bring it back into the realm of reliability. Their vast knowledge in powder metal also helps us with material selection and possible form shapes.

Vision offers a wide variety of stainless steels:

  • 316 for outstanding corrosion protection
    Need Better? We use our High Temperature Type 316 for the best corrosion protection and high strength
  • 304 for general purpose applications
  • 303 for general purpose applications needing machining
  • Note:  400 series is available and can be heat treated, but the part structure must be simple shaped and without thin cross sections

Vision has quickly become one of our best suppliers. Their top-notch quality, responsiveness, on time delivery, technical knowledge, and attention to detail of critical components ensure we are able to deliver an excellent product to our customers around the world.
