AMES – Hall 3.2 Stand A37

Visit the AMES profile  


Founded in 1951, AMES is engaged in the manufacture and sale of sintered metal components.
AMES is one of the world leaders in the manufacture of sintered components in large series.

Our main products are:

  • Mechanical and hydraulic parts
  • Gears
  • Soft magnetic parts
  • Stainless steel parts
  • Filters and porous metal components
  • Self-lubricating sintered bearings

Sintering is used for a large number of structural components, either mechanical or hydraulic. There is a great diversity of materials (iron based), shapes, finishings, treatments and coatings, whick make possible to reach components of high precision and strong performance.

Material for such components is typically steel. AMES provides a wide range of sintered steel grades, from Fe-C, to high-alloy steels with Cu, Ni, Mo, Cr or Mn.

Properties of materials are the result of the combination of the alloying strategy and the processing technology. The achievable properties are, indicatively: yield strength higher than 850 MPa, tensile strength higher than 1250 MPa, apparent hardness up to 55 HRC, and bending fatigue limit higher than 450 MPa. These properties are comparable to wrought structural steels or to alloyed cast iron.


Self-lubricating bearings

AMES manufactures three ranges of self-lubricating bearings, as follows:

  1. Selfoil® standard bearings. Bearings made in standard dimensions, with spherical or cylindrical shapes, with or without flange. Selfoil® is the best solution for retail, and is available off the shelf.
  2. Selfoil® Rods for machining. These bearings are solid or hollow cylinders, to be machined to final dimensions when the system is not ready for standard Selfoil® bearings.
  3. Bearings by design. Customized bearings for medium- to high production volumes, specifically designed for a given equipment. Most of AMES bearing production corresponds to this range of OEM bearings.

AMES may recommend the most appropiate material and design to meet your needs.


Stainless steel parts 

Sintered stainless is widely used in industry for applications requiring high corrosion resistance at both room temperature and very high temperatures.



Sintering successfully achieves the geometry of the teeth directly from the compacting operation. Furthermore, it allows to obtain gears with a large variety of sizes and shapes.


Self-lubricating Bearings

A self-lubricating sintered bearing is a metallic component with high porosity (20-25% in volume), impregnated in a lubricant oil.
