Powder Metal

Problem:

• Transferring power from a motor to a square drive requires precision components such as a Spur Gear and they can be quite expensive.
• A square recess cannot be milled and broaching is an expensive secondary operation.

Solution:

• A gear fabricated using Powder Metal provides high quantity precision components at a low cost and also provides the ability to add geometry (such as square holes) that cannot be created with subtractive manufacturing methods (milling, broaching, etc.).
• The gear teeth geometry exactly matches a theoretically exact involute surface.
