Powder Metallurgy Design Excellence Award 2019
The winners in the 2019 Powder Metallurgy (PM) Design Excellence Awards competition, sponsored by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF), demonstrate outstanding examples of PM’s diversity. These component fabricators use PM’s flexibility to push forward new concepts and process controls, and demonstrate the inexhaustible well of capabilities PM can marshal in the service of component design. Designers continue to choose PM for critical applications such as auto engines and transmissions, medical devices, consumer products, hardware, and more.
Nine Grand Prizes and seven Awards of Distinction have been given in this year’s competition.
Powder Metallurgy Design Excellence Awards 2018
In 2018, Catalus won in the Lawn & Garden/Off-Highway category for a tilt steering mechanism that is used as a pivot on an ATV/SSV application. This part required significant development time on a specific conventional press on one bottom punch and a stepped core rod. Initially, this was to be a machined wrought part, but in collaborating with the customer, we decided not to use a high density heat treated material. Because of this open dialogue, Catalus was able to help the client realize significant cost savings in a very competitive market.
The Catalus team accepted the award at the Powdermet 2018 International Conference on Powder Metallurgy and Particulate Materials conference in San Antonio, Texas in June 2018.
Catalus Corporation is a proud member of the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) and the Center for Powder Metallurgy Technology (CPMT).
