Sintering is the process of compacting, welding together, and forming a solid mass of material from small particles without melting it. In the case of metal sintering, metal powders (powder metallurgy) are used. This process requires the use of protective atmospheres and is typically done at high temperatures. Sintering is also the last stage in metal injection molding (MIM) processing.


  • Most metals can be sintered
  • Improvement of mechanical and physical properties
  • Material density can be controlled and decided depending on the physical properties desired
  • Build complex shapes
  • High dimensional precision
  • Weight reduction
  • High process capability
