Metallurgy is a "leading edge" manufacturing process utilised by Sumitomo to
make high performance metal components from metal powders for a wide range of product
The components are
made by compacting metal powders in high precision dies and then heating the resultant
"pre-formed" part to a temperature below its melting point, causing the
compressed powder particles to bond together.
Metallurgy process as compared to conventional methods produces components of high
precision and complicated shapes in large quantities.
