Powder Metal Main Bearing Caps
Metaldyne powder metal main bearing caps are supplied with a near net-shape, significantly reducing OEM machining costs. An alternative to ductile cast iron, the powder metal design provides optimal strength, weight, and machinability.
- Unique powder alloy system for increased strength
- Optimal geometry for improved density distribution
- Net-shape forming technology improves material utilization up to 40% compared to cast iron
- Proprietary powder metal material sintering process increases yield life and machining tool life by 20% compared to ductile cast iron
