In early 2021, in response to the rapid rate of change in its automotive customer base, Amsted Industries brought two of its Tier 1 automotive supply business units, Means Industries and Burgess-Norton, together. Combined, they formed a new technology team: Amsted Automotive Group (AAG), offering expertise in advanced metal forming, Powder Metallurgy, and electro-mechanical torque transfer and propulsion system design, and positioning Amsted as a key participant in vehicle electrification.

Bernard North visited Burgess-Norton MFG in Geneva, Illinois, USA, and here reports on the company’s history, facilities and ongoing response to a changing market.

Meeting sustainability demands in Powder Metallurgy

Powder Metallurgy parts on a sintering conveyor belt

In recent years, all industries have been challenged by increasingly tough regulations aimed at combatting climate change, fast-moving developments in vehicle electrification, fluctuations in the status and supply of raw materials, and more.

The need to increase process sustainability applies even to already-efficient industries like press and sinter Powder Metallurgy, where the production of low alloyed parts faces pressure to increase process efficiency and decrease its reliance on the now-critical alloying materials nickel and copper.

In this article, Dr Vladislav Krushanov and Dr Volker Arnhold explore some of the best options to achieve this.
