November 12, 2010
Fine Sinter Co., Ltd., Japan, received a 2010 Japan Powder Metallurgy Association (JPMA) award for a MIM variable nozzle vane for diesel turbochargers.
The part meets strict dimensional tolerance requirements as close as ±0.015mm on the wing profile, which was achieved with machining.
It is produced using a special tool that has a unique sliding function when opening, reducing deformation during ejection. MIM production offered a 20% cost saving.
