Pumps

The Powder Metal (P/M) process is well suited to producing pump components, as the geometry allows for very efficient material usage. Below are a couple examples of such applications, typically used in oil and transmission environments.

Variable Vane Oil Pump Application

A typical family of powder metal parts for variable vane oil pump application

  • Powder metal is a great choice to meet the varying geometries of these parts, with virtually zero material loss
  • The components are ground to length and surface finish requirements
  • In some cases, the components are heat treated for improved properties
Automotive Pump Applications

  • Powder metal is a great choice to meet the varying geometries of these parts, and again yields very little material loss
  • Depending on the environment, both stainless steel and iron components can be produced
  • The components are ground to length and surface finish requirements
  • In some cases, the components are heat treated for improved properties
