Investarm products can be made of iron, steel alloy, stainless steel, brass, copper or bronze.
The best European powder suppliers are selected to get a wide range of choice to choose from. Powders can be used as they are supplied or can be mixed to reach specific mechanical and dimensional properties.
Iron powder (with various percentages of carbon available) is used for low strength applications. Pure iron is particularly useful for magnetic applications, having very low carbon content.
Stainless steel can be sintered, in particular AISI316L. Compared to turning or milling, stainless steel sintering provides opportunities to realise cost savings through reduction of wastage.
Steel alloy powder is used for high strength applications. These powders are perfect for heat treatment when very high strength is required.
Sintered brass has better dimensional precision and surface finishing characteristics compared to diecasting technology.
Compared to other technologies, copper sintering gives interesting cost savings opportunity through reducing the quantity of raw material required
A typical application of sintered bronze is bushings of various kinds.
