This part was initially manufactured as a three-piece wrought iron assembly. A P/M competitor then converted it to a P/M part with a steel pin pressed through the ID.
This part was converted from a casting to P/M by TPI working closely with the customers engineering department.
This part points out the importance of early design consultation with the TPI engineering staff.
Taking the part design from a round casting, as shown in the background, to the finished P/M part in the foreground has generated substantial cost savings for the customer.
