Powder Metallurgy

POWDER METALLURGY

From powder to high-strength engine components

Vision: forward-looking innovations
Partner: SHW Automotive


SHW engineers high-precision sintered components using innovative moulding and joining solutions.


PRODUCTION OF
SINTERED MOULDED PARTS

SHW manufactures high-precision and highly durable sintered components used in automobile engines, transmissions and chassis. 


Together with our customers we face up to the challenges confronting the international automobile industry to reduce CO2 and simultaneously improve economy.

Thanks to our many years of experience and standardised production and quality assurance processes, we guarantee our customers tailored and economic solutions.  

DEVELOPMENT PROCESS

The production of sintered parts involves a number of steps, some of which are optional. At the beginning of the sintering process, metal powders are mixed and compacted using sophisticated tools. The resulting compacted part is then sintered at temperatures of up to 1350°C. In order to obtain the greatest possible precision, the finished part is calibrated in some applications and, if necessary, machined, heat-treated and coated in post-processing before being joined or assembled.

Technologies

The SHW Group is one of the innovation leaders in fuel-efficient vehicle components and technology leader in the field of brake discs.

Products

In the Powder Metallurgy division, we develop and manufacture products for the engine components sector

SINTERED COMPONENTS FOR ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION OIL PUMPS

In terms of their precision, stability of form, durability and the strength of the components, engine and transmission oil pumps place high demands on the components in the flow area.

HIGH DENSITY GEAR WHEELS

Cost-efficient balancer shaft systems with a minimal footprint necessitate high-strength parts. Moreover, they must be precise and highly durable.

Components for camshaft phasers

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are reduced by the use of high-precision camshaft phaser components, such as stators and rotors.

Sintered aluminum parts

The materials developed to meet the robust demands placed on engines are noted for their high durability. The fundamental advantages of aluminum, such as its light weight, its mechanical properties and corrosion resistance, help to reduce CO2 emissions.

Straight and helical gear wheels

We develop and produce high-precision gear wheels and chain wheels for various engine and transmission applications as well as other applications with outstanding accuracy.

Other moulded sintered parts

In addition to the product groups listed above, we also carry a large number of components for the widest range of applications.
