Our Capabilities

At MPP, we have more than a half a century of experience working with steel, iron, and stainless steel materials.

Metal Powder Products (MPP) is a full-service company offering complete design and engineering services, as well as process and product development from prototype through production. MPP is a pioneer in volume production of aluminum products. At MPP, we have more than a half a century of experience working with steel, iron, and stainless steel materials.

Without the dedication and focus of skilled employees throughout the organization, MPP would not be able to offer the outstanding customer support and problem-solving solutions that have been our hallmark since 1948. MPP’s goal is to design and produce the correct part for the customer using the most cost-effective process available, and to deliver the part to the customer on time while meeting specifications.

Materials

We can work with Aluminum, Soft Magnetic Materials, Iron, Steels, and Stainless Steels

Aluminum

MPP is the world’s premiere producer of structural aluminum powder metal (PM) components. Our company leads the way in the use of pm aluminum for a variety of new and existing applications.

Aluminum’s light weight and strength provide an excellent strength-to-weight ratio. Aluminum offers product forms and alloys that surpass any other material. The design flexibility of aluminum is unparalleled, allowing designers to engineer optimum shape and performance for each specific application.

Soft Magnetic Materials

The processing of soft magnetic materials is another area of expertise for MPP. The most common soft magnetic pm materials used by MPP are pure Fe, Fe‑0.45% P, Fe-3% Si, and Fe-50% Ni. In addition, 410L and 434L plus similar grades of stainless are also good candidates for soft magnetic applications where corrosion resistance is needed. Soft magnetic pm materials are an important advantage for customers looking for improved performance of actuators, electric motors, and other electromechanical devices.

Higher temperatures during sintering and the use of pure hydrogen for oxide reduction improve soft magnetic performance. The absence of nitrogen eliminates the deleterious effects of the element, while the higher diffusion rates increase density, dissolve precipitates, and promote recrystallization and grain growth. In the case of silicon steel and phosphorus steel, the increased densification occurs with the aid of transient liquid phases.

Iron, Steels, and Stainless Steels

MPP produces components from a wide variety of pm iron and steel alloys, which are generally known as ferrous pm alloys. These include admixed elemental ferrous alloys, diffusion alloyed steels, pre-alloyed low alloy steels, stainless steels, and tool steels.

  • Admixed, Elemental Ferrous Alloys – Used for soft magnetic and low strength structural applications, and for structural and/or soft magnetic applications.
  • Diffusion Alloyed Steels – Offer the benefits of a soft iron (Fe) core, for compressibility, and are typically used in medium- to high -strength structural applications.
  • Pre-alloyed Low Alloy Steels – Used in high-strength structural applications.
  • Stainless Steels – Offer high corrosion resistance.
  • Tool Steels — Highly recommended for compressively loaded wear applications, offering excellent wear resistance
