If it ain't broke, don't fix it?

Posted by Dave DeLullo III on Oct 5, 2016 1:00:00 PM

How many of the things that you own do you maintain? Why should you maintain those things? What’s the point? Let me set the scene. You wake up, grab a shower, coffee, breakfast, and you’re out the door. You get into your vehicle and make your way to work but, you notice something’s not right with your car as you slow to a stop.

Either way, you say “I’ll get it fixed later.” A month goes by, still not fixed and now when slow your car to a stop it sounds like Freddy Krueger dragging his knife glove across the pavement.

John F. Kennedy said “Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future”. I know what you're thinking, easier said than done, right? Changing before your competition, thinking forward, and trying new things puts you ahead of the curve. Converting your production line components to Powdered Metal (PM) could be a big advantage for your business. Without Change, we cannot improve.

What Are The Right Powdered Metal Parts For Me?

Posted by Dave DeLullo III on Apr 26, 2016 1:42:44 PM

The powdered metal trade is a very popular and demanding industry. The amount of powdered metal parts throughout the world today is enormous! However, there are some companies out there that might not be convinced that powdered metal is the right choice for them. I would like to address one of the questions that prospects have asked us on more than one occasion. “What’s the right material for me?” In order to answer that question, we need to know two things. What material are you currently using (ex. cast, wrought, molded, etc.) and what is the part’s current application and physical requirements (how it is used and what is it used for)?
