From powder to the final product
Our production chain starts with the reduction of ultrapure oxide to metal powder. This is the only way that we can achieve the high material purity of our products. We use powder metallurgy to manufacture our metal composite materials. Your advantage: optimally balanced material properties and a particularly homogeneous material composition. We manufacture compact, metal parts from porous powder blanks. Using special forming processes and mechanical processing steps as well as modern coating and connection technologies, we turn these into complex components with a maximum density and the highest quality. We are also making continual investments in the latest fully automatic systems to ensure high production capacities and numerous production options. At the same time, our investment in mines in the West helps to ensure a secure supply of raw materials. Our in-house production and our international manufacturing network help to ensure guaranteed delivery capability. This will enable us to continue being a reliable development partner far into the future.
