Powder Metallurgy Properties: Important Considerations for Parts Design and Development

February 14, 2020

Many manufacturing companies have resorted to powder metallurgy (PM) as a way to create products out of metal. The steps behind powder metallurgy involve the mixture of elemental or alloy powders through compacting them in a die. After the compacting process, the new mixture is then sintered or heated at high temperature to further solidify […]

Examples of Metal Materials Used in Sintering

January 28, 2020

There are a lot of ways of creating metal parts without going through the melting process. One of them is sintering which involves the process of compacting and forming a solid mass of material by heat or pressure. Manufacturers practice sintering as it can reduce porosity and enhance properties like strength, electrical conductivity, and thermal […]

Sinter Bonding in Powder Metallurgy: What is it All About?

January 14, 2020

Powder metallurgy has been playing a huge role in the creation of metallic materials and components. It is a form of technology where powder used for creating metallic or even ceramic materials are moulded into specific shapes and dimensions. The whole process of metal creation through powder metallurgy reduces cost, energy, and waste. The formation […]

Tooling Do’s and Don’ts in Powder Metallurgy Design Considerations

December 13, 2019

Considering the detail-oriented nature of this process, how likely is it that such a premium quality fabrication technique could be maintained if the Powder Metallurgy tools used here didn’t have equally outstanding build qualities? Like a supercomputer that was inputting rubbish and kicking out more rubbish, second-rate PM tools could only ever manufacture second-rate sintered […]

Advantages of Vacuum Sintering

December 2, 2019

Vacuum sintering adds atmosphere-less processing to a powder metallurgy equipment line. Basically, there’s a pump to remove air from the sintering chamber. Outgassing binders are next. They’re removed from the compacted Green part before the powdered material is exposed to coalescing heat. Free of process chemicals and oxidizing gasses, the operation acquires a super-clean particle […]
