Powdered metal parts can be found throughout plumbing appliances, due to their relatively lower cost, high quality, and tight tolerances. Sterling Sintered has decades of experience manufacturing components for the plumbing industry, providing our partners with reliable solutions that enhance the functionality and durability of their appliances.
This plumbing industry customer came to us with a problem to solve–they had a complex part that was going to end up being relatively expensive and time-consuming to manufacture. With a bit of creativity, Sterling Sintered was able to manufacture a powder metal part that met their needs with just one machining operation.
The design of the part included a combination of internal splines and counter-bores with the external configuration and pie-shaped element on the top, making this part one that is best produced using technology that minimizes machining operations. This in turn reduces the amount of unnecessary stress that the part undergoes during production.
This case is a good demonstration of what happens when we combine our can-do attitude and expertise with superior equipment. This customer brought us a part that originally seemed impossible and through simultaneous engineering efforts, we solved the problem and offered a cost-effective solution.
