How to Gauge the Quality and Characteristics of Metal Powders
January 14, 2021
When it comes to powder metallurgy, the perceived quality and characteristics of metal powders can all affect the outcome of the products. And so, to obtain greater product results, businesses would normally want to have their metal powders tested. These tests allow them to determine both the physical and mechanical properties of the metal powders […]
What You Should Know About PV Rating of Bearings
December 15, 2020
Bearings have been very useful for many pieces of equipment and devices. For one, bearings help them reduce friction whenever their parts or components rotate. Additionally, they are intended to protect the part that supports the rotation. Even the positioning of the rotating shaft is maintained through bearings. With these hardware devices, industries are guaranteed […]
Understanding Sintered Cylindrical Roller Bearings
December 7, 2020
Bearings are designed to limit the relative motion of parts to the desired motion. They are also intended to reduce friction as well as any damages that may occur between two or more moving parts. To date, there are various types of bearings available that can fit in specific applications, which are determined by the […]
Why is Bronze a Good Material to Use for Sintering?
November 27, 2020
Sintering is a heat treatment process that is applied to a compacted part at a temperature lower than the melting point of the base metal. The temperature of the said process allows the particles of the compacted part to be welded to one another through the solid-state diffusion mechanism. The sintering process can impart strength, […]
What are the Secondary Operations in Powder Metallurgy?
November 9, 2020
One sustainable metal-forming process that is being utilised by industries today is known as powder metallurgy. This specific process is done by heating compacted metal powders below their melting points, which can help avoid and reduce the use of any metal removal or machining processes. Moreover, powder metallurgy can easily cut yield losses without spending […]
