Technical trends in metal-cutting tools: An overview of ongoing innovation in one of PM’s key markets

Cutting tools for applications in metal processing represent one of the primary markets for the Powder Metallurgy industry. Here, PM technology makes it possible to produce cutting tools with complex geometries to near-net shape, a feat not possible using conventional manufacturing methods.

Despite the basic technologies of metal-cutting tools having existed for several decades, tool manufacturers continue to introduce new products which can provide substantial benefits. In this article, Bernard North, North Technical Management, LLC, overviews developments in materials, design and software that are driving innovation in this important sector of PM.

Fatigue data for PM steels: How the world’s largest PM part producer is facing the challenges of data generation and organisation

Data on the material properties of Powder Metallurgy steels, in particular static and cyclic strength data, is crucial for end-users to have confidence in the production of highly loaded applications. Access to such data also enables the effective use of commercial fatigue simulation software. GKN Sinter Metals, the world’s largest producer of structural PM components, has grappled with the multiple challenges associated with generating, storing and retrieving such data.

Markus Schneider, Robert Maassen, Dennis Wawoczny and Christos Radis, GKN Sinter Metals Engineering GmbH, Radevormwald, Germany, share their insight into this ongoing challenge.

Reducing CO2 emissions in the PM industry: A lifecycle analysis of servo-electric versus hydraulic powder presses

There is a global need for action to minimise greenhouse gas emissions and, thus, limit further global warming. Despite its reputation as a technology which is already greener than most, this also holds true in the Powder Metallurgy industry. In recent years, PM companies have found themselves under increasing pressure to improve process sustainability, from their customers as well as regulators.

This pressure is only likely to increase in the near future. Michael Looser and Michael Sollberger, of Switzerland’s Osterwalder AG, explain how the company’s servo-electric powder presses help make PM even more efficient

Powder Metallurgy: The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
