What's Power Metal Products Division and Power Metallurgy

"Powder Metal Products Division" has been developing powder metallurgical technology for several in a variety of fields. "Powder Metallurgy" represents production process of alloys. Conventional alloys are made by melting several metals,and are called "Ingot Metallurgy (IM) Alloys". Sumitomo Electric produces alloys by the "powder metallurgy"method which is the compaction of several metals into minute powders followed by sintering. There are advantages of this method.

"P/M parts"(powder metal parts) means structual parts made of iron base material and are widely used in engine parts,AT・MT parts and mechanical electric parts for automobiles and home appliances.
