1) Blending 
Metal powders are first mixed with lubricants and/or other alloys to produce a homogeneous blend of ingredients. Often the blending is done by the metal powder producer.

2) Compaction
The powder is gravity-fed into the die and is usually compacted at room temperature. The most common compacting pressures are in the 30 - 50 tons per square inch range. Compax, Inc. has automated pressing equipment ranging from 4 - 250 tons.

3) Sintering
During sintering the pressed parts move through a controlled-atmosphere furnace. The pressed powder particles fuse together, forming metallurgical bonds. Compax, Inc. has high temperature sintering capabilities up to 3000 degrees F.
