What motivated us to integrate powder metallurgy into its process? Mainly the need to create pseudo-alloys from a mixture of metals (Ag and Cu), non-miscible oxides, and refractory materials.
All three plants of the Metalor Electrotechnics Business Group are outfitted with powder units. Our powders are produced by simple mixing, mechanical/thermal granulation, or chemically.
The choice of powder process depends on the desired mechanical, electrical, and thermal characteristics of the final product. Our powders are used in compaction or extrusion processes to produce semi-finished or finished products (billets, strips, and wires). Our powders are developed internally to meet our exacting needs.
