Cost-Effective Custom Manufacturing Solutions Delivered On Time

Capabilities / Powder Metals

Powder metal technology produces parts to net or near net shape, reducing cost, time, machining operations, and material waste. Carl Associates offers a wide range of powder metal production services with manufacturing capabilities from miniature to 500 grams per part and in quantities from prototype lots to high volume runs.

Multi-level compacting presses from 4 to 110 tons can produce close tolerance parts with complex multi-level shapes.

Coining presses from 1 to 50 tons increase part density and reduce dimensional variation.
