The Right Powder Metal Materials For Your Application

You have your component designed. You know it will function mechanically in your assembly, but will the component hold up to the rigorous testing? Will the part go through the thousands of cycles without wearing out or fatiguing?

At Vision Quality Components Inc., we have the experience you need to design both a custom material and a process for that material that will give you the greatest chance in meeting your parts requirements.

The right mix: Our Materials Engineer will help you choose the right Powder Metal mix to give your component the properties it needs, while ensuring the lowest possible cost.

We offer the following materials for providing the properties you require in your applications:

Vision’s Engineers have developed our own in-house, highest strength alloy steel: VISION 736 MAX STRENGTH©

    • Pressed up to a density of 7.4 gms/cc
    • Excellent strengths, tensile to 210,000 PSI
    • Heat treated for exceptional wear, micro-hardness to RC 60
    • Cost effectively replaces most machined wrought steel parts, iron cast parts, investment cast parts, copper infiltrated PM parts, and double pressed and double sintered PM parts
See VISION 736 MAX STRENGTH featured in Gear Product News magazine.
Vision offers a wide variety of stainless steels:

    • Type 316 for outstanding corrosion protection
      • Need Better? We use our High Temperature Type 316 for the best corrosion protection and high strength
    • Type 304 for general purpose applications
    • Type 303 for general purpose applications needing machining
    • Note:  Type 400 series is available and can be heat treated, but the part structure must be simple shaped and without thin cross sections

 

For your non ferrous components, Vision offers brass and bronze materials:

    • 90-10 Brass
    • 80-20 Brass
    • 70-30 Brass
    • 90-10 Bronze
Other materials to choose from:

    • High temperature steels for higher strength and ductility
    • Carbon steels
    • Copper steels
    • Soft magnetic irons
    • If you need copper infiltrated steel, see VISION 736 MAX STRENGTH above
