Sintering is the process of using heat to turn powdered substances into solids without actually melting the material.


Benefits of sintered powder metallurgy (PM):

  • Cost effective
  • Provides excellent reproducibility and repeatability
  • Many features can be formed in tooling, thus eliminating or minimizing machining
  • Very high material to yield ratio
  • Wide variety of alloy systems and materials are available
  • Long term performance reliability
  • Excellent surface finishes
  • Energy efficient and environmentally friendly
  • Sustainability

About Compax Sintering:

Sintering allows production of parts without melting and liquid casting processes, i.e., dealing with only powder or fine sand.


The compacted part is placed on a mesh belt or a tray and slowly moves through a furnace with a controlled atmosphere and temperature. The parts are heated below the melting point of the metals. The compacted particles of the part are changed from a mechanical bond between the particles into a metallurgical bond between the particles.

Compax has higher sintering capabilities thanĀ most of its competitors. A higher sintering temperature creates enhanced mechanical properties and significantly improves stainless steel materials.


We offer belt, pusher, batch, sinter heat treat, draw (temper) furnaces, blackening, passivation and annealing. We haveĀ furnaces with capabilities up to 3000 degrees F (1650 C)
