Advanced Materials Technologies Pte. Ltd., Singapore, won an award of distinction in the industrial motors/controls & hydraulics category for 316L and 440C stainless steel parts (catch X-Z datum, catch bias Z datum, front and rear support tabs) used in an industrial printer module. Achieving a yield strength rate of 234,000 psi, the 440C tabs support and align the print head module and are subjected to impact force during printing. The 316L catches guide and feed paper to the printing module. Choosing the MIM process over casting and machining yielded a 40% cost savings.
Winners of the 2012 Powder Metallurgy Design Excellence Awards Competition, sponsored by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (an international trade association for the metal powder producing and consuming industries), were announced at PowderMet2012, the International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials. Receiving grand prizes and awards of distinction, the winning parts are outstanding examples of PM's precision, performance, complexity, economy, innovation, and sustainability. The winning parts show how customers from around the world are taking advantage of PM's remarkable design advantages.
MIM is one of the powder metallurgy (PM) technologies, that form metal powders into precision components used in applications such as auto engines and transmissions, hardware, industrial machinery, sporting goods, defense, and firearms.
