Powder Metal Manufacturing of an Insert for the Lawn & Garden Industry

A customer in the lawn and garden industry needed a manufacturer with the advanced capabilities to create a precision, multi-level bearing insert cover for use in a garden tractor application. Ridgway Powdered Metals was contracted to do all of the required work, utilizing a state of the art 550 ton multi-level press featuring three lower punches and two upper punches to perform the compacting of the finest grade copper steel “FC-0208-50” material into the customer specified profile. A controlled, high temperature sintering process was then applied, to further consolidate the materials and complete the metal bonding. The part was deburred for removal of unwanted particles and left with a raw/machined finish.

Completed dimensions for the bearing insert cover were an outside diameter of 2.050” and a height of 1.145”. Tightest tolerances of Ø 0.6710” / Ø 0.6695” were held throughout. The part was fully tested and inspected with dimensional and gauge inspections, in keeping with Ridgway’s standards for quality and accuracy. Production parts were complete and shipped to the customer in Milwaukee, WI within 4-6 weeks. This part has an estimated annual usage of 30,000 units.
