These sintered parts for automotive components are well suited for cost-efficiency gains through mass production. 1. It is possible to manufacture near net shaped raw materials by using high-precision dies. Total costs can be lowered by reducing cutting processes. 2. Assembly costs can be reduced by combining two or more parts. 3. Cost reductions are possible through mass production. 4. An endless number of materials can be created by mixed materials. - Precision parts with complex 3D shapes can be produced even though the manufacturing method is more suited to mass production than machining. - Sintering can create composite materials not possible with melted alloys and help further optimize materials. - Sintering is environmentally friendly because the manufacturing process prevents material from being wasted.
