Sintered Stainless Steel Parts
Stainless Steel powder metallurgy offers advantageous mechanical characteristics, corrosion resistance, strength, design flexibility and appearance. These powders can be processed using PM techniques to produce a variety of components with specific properties. Stainless steel powders are appropriate for producing components that need both corrosion resistance and elevated mechanical properties.
Stainless Steel - 400 Series Alloy
The 400 series stainless steels normally are selected for their magnetic properties or heat-treat response:
- SS-410-90HT Selected for its combination of strength, hardness and wear resistance. Carbon is added to increase the heat-treat response. This alloy responds to furnace cooling as a sinter-hardenable alloy. A secondary quench and temper process will increase hardness. Both corrosion resistance and machinability are poor.
Key Advantages of Stainless Steel:
Stainless steel materials produce components that require resistance to corrosion, rust, and oxidation. This property makes them ideal for applications in harsh environments, where components need to maintain their integrity over time.
Stainless steel powders are able to be alloyed to reach high levels of strength, hardness and durability. The components can withstand extreme temperatures, mechanical stresses,wear and exposure to chemicals, ensuring longevity and reliability in challenging conditions.
Stainless steel's non-porous surface and resistance to bacterial growth make it an excellent choice for industries that demand high levels of cleanliness and hygiene, such as food processing and medical equipment manufacturing.
Beyond its functional advantages, stainless steel's aesthetic appeal and versatility provide a wide variety of applications. It can be seamlessly integrated into various design concepts, from modern architecture to consumer goods, enhancing both functionality and visual appeal
Stainless steel is inherently recyclable, contributing to a more sustainable manufacturing cycle. Choosing stainless steel materials aligns with eco-conscious practices and reduces environmental impact.
When applicable, stainless steel alloys can include magnetic properties making them suitable for magnetic sensor components and electromagnetic devices.
