Manufacture Of A Powder Metal Adjusting Nut

This Adjusting Nut used in a break system is an ideal Powder Metal item.

PM offers unparalleled flexibility and cost effectiveness in the production of complex components such as this 4 3/4" hexagon Adjuster shown on the left. The internal gear, multiple cross-sections and the small dimples on its face are all compacted with the PM tooling. Each of these features will be very costly machining operations with other metal working techniques. Complex geometry of this kind readily lends itself to PM manufacturing.

After compacting and sintering, this part must be subjected to additional threading and heat treating for its completion. In this case the customer wishes to perform these operations. However, RPM normally ships completely finished products with any/all of the required machining, heat treating, plating, etc. steps applied.

Engineers at Ridgway Powdered Metals are eager to assist its customers in the design of their custom PM components. RPM Engineers and/or its Sales Representatives can consult with customers about the most economical way to produce accurate, high quality parts with their required dimensions, tolerances and geometry.
