Powder metallurgy is the future

Powder metallurgy is one of the fast growing sectors in metal processing industry. The main reason for this is of course the progress made in the production of all components by powder metallurgical processes. In this respect, the following 3 aspects must be highlighted:

the highly sophisticated variety of alloys, the coverage of the whole range of densities from porous and soft to super-dense and high-strength as well as a striking accuracy in shape of even the most complex components, have resulted in new developments and production methods mainly in the automotive and electric industry but also the field of aviation and aerospace. Another advantage derives from the possibility to produce even high quantities mostly without any reworking. In the near future the additive production in 3D printing is highly promising.

Fundamentals of powder metallurgy

m-tec powder has focused on one of the basics for all this progress. The customized and highly exact production and blending of metal powders and alloys, enables our customers to achieve ever new progress in the production of steel and hot metal.

The chemical industry is using our magnesium based products in various production lines such as the production of plant protecting agents, the development of new pyrotechnical material or even the development of new pharmaceuticals. Lightweight construction in automotive and in the field of mobile electronics, requires ever more perfectly customized material, which are enabled by m-tec powder.

Powder metallurgy „Made in Germany”

Within the last few years, we found that “Made in Germany” has not lost any of its power in most countries of the world. Reliable and scientific approach, strict adherence to delivery- and time requirements and an extra-ordinary price-performance ratio are the prerequisite for a just-in-time production.

We are very happy that our powder metallurgy products have been adopted extremely well. Based on this, our relatively young company has been able to make a name within only a few years, which enables an adequate growth and productive new investment in South Africa and Germany.
