SINGAPORE, May 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Materials Technologies (AMT) won the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) Design Excellence Awards' Grand Prize in the Automotive-Engine segment for delivering design and manufacturing innovation for a component used in a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system.
The MPIF Design Excellence Awards recognizes and honors the achievements of companies that have demonstrated design innovation, superior engineering properties with unique and differentiated commercial application.
AMT collaborated closely with a leading global German provider of SCR and diesel particulate filter systems to design and manufacture this award-winning nozzle. The nozzle is used in the SCR system, one of the most cost-effective and fuel-efficient technologies to reduce diesel engine emission in commercial vehicles. Given the tightening Euro 5 and Euro 6 diesel emission standards, demand for innovative and cost-efficient solutions for exhaust after-treatment is likely to increase in the coming years.
A product of AMT's patented In-Coring™ technology and deep Metal Injection Molding (MIM) expertise, this component has complex internal channels, which cannot be produced through conventional machining processes while achieving tight dimensional control critical to efficient performance of an SCR system. The In-Coring™ technology behind this complex component is highly adaptable and versatile, with wide ranging applications.
AMT continues to push the limits of MIM technology and its industrial application. It now offers levels of precision, consistency, and productivity that make it a preferred solution for wide ranging applications that demands components of high complexity and material performance. The engineering team can assist in design for manufacturing, prototyping (3D metal prototyping) to shorten product development and accelerate time to market.
