Question: Can a finished sintered metal part be used in welding applications?

Answer: Yes

Best Practices for Welding Sintered Metals

  • Keep parts free of contaminants 
    • Residual lubricants, coolants or cleaning solutions reduce the weld integrity.
  • Select a material with a lower carbon content 
    • The materials with a 0.0 - 0.5% perform better than the higher carbon blends.
  • Use a higher density 
    • Parts with densities above 6.8 g/cc provide improved weld contact areas.
