Warm compacting is technology to obtain green compact with higher strength than that of normal compacting technology. Key of this technology is to keep temperature of mixed powder at specific level during compaction.
Sintered aluminum alloy that is produced under careful technology of material design and production provides excellent wear resistance and mechanical properties in compared with properties of die cast material. This alloy permits reduction on size and weight of connecting rods used in general-purpose engines.
This unique bearing assures excellent endurance as used for ultra high-speed rotating spindle motors (up to 30,000 rpm) because magnetic fluid used provides both fluid sealing and lubrication effects. Also high-accuracy rotation (low NRRO and low noise) was achieved by adopting design of dynamic pressure on internal diameter.
Diffusion bonding technology is able to reduce or eliminate machining as a result of high bonding force on multi separate pieces by well- controlled diffusion of each element. Adopting this technology is able to expand applications of the powder metallurgy on complicated parts because of its near net shape which leads to cost reduction.
Computer-control on moving of each parts of tool ensures uniformity of local density. Also the technology made possible thin-wall compacting and multi-steps on upper and lower punches sides. Near net shape compacting result in cost reduction because of less or elimination on machining.
Optimizing contents of Nickel, Copper, and/or Molybdenum results in higher strength as compared with conventional sintered materials. Some products reach certain hardness without quenching through careful material design on raw powders and such materials are introduced in market
