Powder Metal Parts

can be designed to enhance nearly any application and offer a lower cost per unit, net or near-net shape, and less material loss than conventional machining. However, the foremost advantage of powder metallurgy is the precise control it gives engineers over materials and their properties.

Powder Metallurgy

Powder metallurgy (P/M) is the ideal process for manufacturing durable, complex mechanical components such as gears, cams, sprockets and other multilevel parts.

World-Class Quality

To meet our standard of quality, Micro Metals relies on well-trained personnel, continuous education and the study of new and innovative trends.
 

Precise Engineering

Powder metallurgy is flexible. With nearly unlimited combinations of properties, it is likely that a powder metal part can be designed to fit your application.

Solid Experience

For 35 years, we have continually worked to provide our customers with economically viable and structurally sound products.
