PM Conversion Project Success Story: Hand-Tool Assembly Conversion
Powder Metal Conversion Results in Significant Cost Reduction with Design Optimization. A hand-tool manufacturer was looking for a solution to improve their component’s design, performance, cost, and assembly time. The original subassembly required three individual parts, a stamped sprocket, a machined lower body, and a fastener. Utilizing the PM process, we were able to work with our customer to convert this three-part subassembly into one, multi-level, net shape component, which resulted in a significant cost savings.
PM Conversion Project Success Story: Hinge Application Conversion Process
As a result of this conversion, we were able to help our customer solve several issues: PM improved part cost by eliminating assembly and machining operations The net shape form created a smooth-running surface for the hinge in the roller assembly. The integration of additional features improved installation time for completing the finished assembly.
What is Powder Metal Conversion? Does Your Part have Powder Metal Conversion Potential?
Powder Metal Conversion has emerged as a game-changer for many businesses, offering a range of benefits such as increased part consistency, decreased production time, improved performance, and reduced costs This is a first video of our Conversion Series and it provides valuable insights into assessing your part for PM conversion potential. If you are ready to assess your part for conversion potential or if you want to learn more about PM conversions, contact Joe Pfingstler, Technical Sales at (814) 371-4800 or JoeP@atlaspressed.com.

Atlas Pressed Metals' Tooling Management for Part Production
Atlas Pressed Metals manufactures a wide range of sintered metal parts for companies in a diverse mix of industries. Safely storing and managing all the parts to each tooling set is critical to minimize delays in compacting machine turnover and ensure parts are manufactured on time and to exacting specifications. Jeramie Reynolds, Atlas' tool room attendant, discusses how he and his team keep customers' tools production-ready. To further Wayne Valentine's interview about tooling design, Jeramie explains the methods used to identify every tooling part and organizing and storing them in their automated tool carousel. This refined system maximizes internal efficiencies for managing inventory. He also addresses the manufacture of today's tooling and how its material composition has improved the longevity of the face detail and punch edges - providing for longer runs.

High-Quality Pressed Metal Parts from Molding to Finishing to Shipping at Atlas Pressed Metals
Watch to learn how Atlas Pressed Metals ensures the delivery of high-quality customer service, product production, and delivery. Atlas employees explain the culture of quality and how it is simply a way of life. The quality of pressed metal parts is observed from start to finish, every step of the way. Atlas Pressed Metals manufactures high-quality precision-pressed metal parts and components for a wide range of applications and industries. The sintered metal process is used to manufacture complex and simple structural iron, steel, stainless, copper, brass, and bronze components. Raw powdered metal (or metal blend) is selected, portioned, and fed into dies. The powders are then compressed with mechanical or hydraulic pressure to meet the shape, size, and density requirements. Finally, the parts are heated (also known as sintered) in high-temperature furnaces to bond the metal and achieve the desired property specifications. Finally, if required, secondary operations are performed, such as repressing, coining, sizing, machining, plating, and more.
