Home Technologies Metallurgy Powder Metallurgy POWDER METALLURGY YIELDS SUPERIOR RESULTS Materion’s proprietary powder metallurgy manufacturing technology allows for the customization of our powder metal products. The results are the production of consistent and high-quality materials that include metals, ceramics and metal matrix composites (MMC). Ultimately these powder metals will be machined and transformed into finished parts used in a multitude of applications. Powder metallurgical materials include: Beryllium metal - Pure beryllium metals offer unmatched stiffness and low density AlBeMet® aluminum-beryllium MMC - Advanced composite with high specific modulus and thermal stability Beryllium oxide (BeO) ceramics - Custom ceramic parts are available and provide even thermal management E-Materials (Be-BeO MMC) - Composite designed for electronics cooling SupremEX® aluminum-silicon-carbide MMC - Lightweight composite with more strength and stiffness than aluminum OUTSTANDING CAPABILITIES FOR ADVANCED MATERIALS SOLUTIONS The precise nature of Materion’s powder metallurgy process delivers materials with higher strength microstructures and ductility, these are critical to meet design requirements and to control machining costs. The uniform physical and mechanical properties produced through powder metallurgy enables designers to use our materials with confidence. DESIGNED FOR USE IN A WIDE RANGE OF DEMANDING APPLICATIONS Powder metallurgy base materials are ideal for use in applications that require low density, high stiffness, high thermal conductivity, low CTE or unique nuclear characteristics. Applications include: Aerospace - including low CTE/high conductivity avionic substrates Space Structures - including low density structural beams and members Nuclear - including low atomic mass, low eroding fusion walls and neutron fission reflectors Optical / Electro-Optical - including high specific stiffness polished space borne mirrors and high vibrational damping / low density targeting systems Medical - including X-Ray transparent windows and emerging cancer technology neutron multipliers Energy / Momentum Conservation - including high speed raster mirrors and precision robotics Contact a Materion Metallurgist today to discuss our powder metallurgy manufacturing technology.
