Rotors & Gears for Lubricating Oil Pumps
Used in diesel and petrol engine lubricating systems. A wide variety of profiles have been developed to suit the design parameters of customers. The PM method offers considerable saving in raw material and processes as compared to conventional manufacturing methods.
Synchroniser Hubs for Transmissions
Used in manual gear transmissions. Have the capabilities to make multilevel parts to near net shape, resulting in improved quality levels and considerable cost savings. These parts find application in passenger car and multi utility vehicles.
Shock Absorber Components
Represents one of the largest segments for PM applications, from simple guide rods to complex piece bottoms and base valves. Most customers tailor make the product configuration to take maximum advantage of the volume linked cost economics of powder metallurgy.
Valve Train Components
Valve seat inserts, valve guides for new generation high-speed engines. Low thermal CoE, hot hardness, wear resistance and easy machinability are possible through PM.
Plain, flanged and spherical bushes are manufactured using combinations of iron, copper and bronze. Vacuum oil impregnated, sintered bushes & bearings are generally used in automobiles, home appliances and general engineering goods.
Popular structural parts such as timing pulleys, sprockets, fuel injection governor levers & weights, engine mounting bearing caps and thrust plates. The required properties in terms of strength, hardness and wear resistance can be engineered into the product by a suitable combination of materials and processes.
The company’s Iron Powder unit is a leading manufacturer of iron powder in the country. It uses the modern water atomization process to produce high quality economically viable iron powder. A variety of grades are used in applications as diverse as PM parts, welding electrodes, steel industry and magnetic tapes. The plant also produces iron powder briquettes of controlled chemistry for use in melting additives.
