Case Study #1 – Helical Gear

Prior to working with Symmco, the customer paid a premium price for machining solid blanks into helical gears, and each part alone yielded over 50% scrap (350 grams).

Through a P/M conversion that produced this gear at near net shape, Symmco eliminated costly scrap and machining expenses and helped to reduce lead times and shipping costs (since the customer no longer had to pay to ship material that would be wasted).

Case Study #2 – Helical Gear

Making minimal modifications to the design of the gear set above (which began as very expensive off-the-shelf pieces requiring full machining), Symmco was able to develop a PM gear pair molded exactly for its intended use.
