Customer-Specific Particle and Component Design

Our core competence in powder metallurgy is the customer-specific design of chemical and physical properties, including particle size, surface structure, granularity, and consistency of the technology metals (also called refractory metals) tungsten, tantalum, niobium and molybdenum. We then mechanically condense, press, sinter, and roll the powders into metal bars. Using special metalworking techniques, we turn these metal bars into customer-specific components, whose unique chemical and physical properties make them virtually indispensable in many key technologies.
