A move to powder metal can cut costs. A move to Horizon Technology unlocks new design possibilities, too.
Customers of our powder metallurgy services fall into two groups. Does your die cast component need upgrading? We may have the technology to redesign that for powder metallurgy and cut costs. Are you already using sintered metal parts manufacturing but want to take your electric machine component to another level? We can facilitate 3D design and unmatched magnetic performance.
Horizon’s services and capabilities translate to many types of applications -- not just the auto industry!
Here are the services and capabilities we offer to help you achieve your goals ...
We are proudly ISO 9001:2015 certified. Any outside vendors we use must also meet the same process standards.
Whether this is your first time taking advantage of powder metallurgy or your 100th, we have something unique to offer your design.
Our experienced engineering team will point out potential design-for-manufacturing and tolerance issues
