Furnace & Metal Parts

Serving the needs of industry since 1981, at Volunteer Sintered Products, Inc. we are a premier provider of sintered powdered metal parts. We research, design, and manufacture close tolerance powder metal parts with exceptional metallurgical characteristics. Family owned and operated, our business philosophy is to form strong partnerships with our clients by providing exceptional quality products and personalized customer service.

As powder metallurgy specialists, our processes are versatile and cost-effective. Powdered metallurgy provides a high degree of design freedom - we can manufacture parts with complex geometries and irregular features that would be difficult to machine. Our processes permit the use of a wide range of alloys, and we can formulate custom powder blends with unique properties tailored to your individual application. We produce parts to near net shape with fine surface finishes, which eliminates most costly secondary processing. There is very little waste associated with sintered metal powder processing, which keeps material costs low.

Our 25,000 square foot building houses compacting, coining, and assembly presses as well as state-of-the-art high-temperature controlled atmosphere sintering furnaces. We use the finest grade powders in low, medium, and high-density compositions to produce gears, cams, bushing, bearings, and other structural products. While many parts are ready for use after sintering, we also offer supplementary processes, such as oil or resin impregnation, heat treating and steam treating, furnace brazing, and various surface treatments to further enhance physical or mechanical properties.

We provide technical support for material selection and all other design aspects of your project. Our quality system is ISO 9001:2008 registered and represents our commitment to continuous improvement of our sintered powdered metal parts and services. We offer just-in-time delivery, and personalized programs and have an outstanding record of on-time performance.
