Whether new component or cost-savings initiatives, AFT can develop parts and materials to meet the ever-changing needs of the automotive industry. AFT has produced turbocharger vanes, fuel injector armatures, transmission components, sensor housing and other high volume automotive components. The combination of excellent material properties, repeatable dimensional capabilities and our experience with the AIAG quality requirements of the industry make AFT the premier choice in precision MIM automotive components.
AFT is ISO/TS 16949 certified, and maintains an expanding list of highly qualified approved suppliers for outside processing. In addition to common automotive alloys such as 440C, HK30, Nimonic 90 and SiFe, we can develop custom alloys specific to your needs. Our team of engineers work hand-in-hand with the materials and design engineers of our customers to develop MIM friendly designs that fulfill component quality requirements while reducing cost and weight. AFT’s in-house team of experts can automate the MIM process from start-to-finish with flexi-cell molding, automated CNC and dedicated vision systems. AFT typically works with Tier 1 and Tier 2 automotive suppliers on cost savings projects that reduce part count, improve mechanical properties and reduce cost of items that have highly engineered functions.
