Sample Powder Metal Multi-Part Assembly: Tailgate Pivot
All components of the tailgate pivot are molded in single action and multi-level presses. The pivots are assembled prior to the sintering operation with a pill and slug in the inner diameter to form fit the pill in place. After sintering, the pivot is then sent to our internal secondary department to have the outside diameter machined to size. The secondary department also air presses the insert and pins into place. The parts are then sent to an outside facility to be finished with one of many different operations such as resin impregnation, plating, plastic over molding, etc and then installed into one of several different tailgate assemblies seen in vehicles worldwide.
