Arcast: A decade of innovation and a bright future for metal powder atomisation

Arcast Inc. celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2020. From its base in Oxford, Maine, USA, the company designs and supplies a range of atomising systems to a diverse customer base across the globe. Soon becoming a leader in compact, laboratory-sized systems, the company today has expanded to offer large scale, custom-built atomisers.

In this article, we look at how the company has advanced over the last ten years, the key technology it has developed and what the future holds for this growing company as it continues to offer metal powder atomisation solutions to a wider market place.



Particle characterisation of metal powders with dynamic image analysis and laser diffraction

The size and shape of metal powders and metal alloys can be characterised by a number of different methods. The control of particle size and distribution is considered an important step in ensuring a metal powder meets the required quality levels.

In this article, Kai Dueffels and Robert Waggeling of Microtrac MRB, Germany, discuss the particle characterisation methods of dynamic image analysis and laser diffraction, using the company’s Camsizer X2 and Sync analysers.



MPIF Powder Metallurgy Design Excellence Awards showcase range of demanding applications

The winners of this year’s Powder Metallurgy Design Excellence Awards competition, sponsored by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF), were announced through a series of press releases due to the cancellation of the World PM2020 Congress.

The awards included components made by conventional press & sinter Powder Metallurgy, Metal Injection Moulding and metal Additive Manufacturing. Here, we present the conventional ‘press and sinter’ PM components that received either Grand Prizes or Awards of Distinction.

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.
