  Sintered metal components made from a micro-fine metal powder.  Powders are available in many different metal and alloy types, these can be combined (compounded) to create yet more variations.

Sintered metal components form precise robust straight sided components.  Due to the pressing process, no draft (mould release angle) is required thus simplifying component design and tooling.  There is a limit to sintered part complexity but sintering is very good for gears, pulleys, timing belt pulleys, lock and mechanism components etc.
