Powder Metallurgy

The SHW Group has long-standing experience in powder metallurgy and, in the Group's view, is the only manufacturer in Europe that has built up a mass production facility for sintered aluminium components. The aluminium components manufactured in this process are characterised by their particularly low weight and thereby contribute to a reduction of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The SHW Group masters this manufacturing process and, given its long-standing experience, can adapt to the future needs of the automobile industry.

In 2010, the SHW Group was awarded for its manufacture of aluminium components for camshaft phasers with the "Award for Excellence in Powder Metallurgy" by the industry association the European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA).
