Following on from a teardown project in 2017, where a team of engineers at Höganäs AB stripped back three new vehicles to their component parts, the company recently repeated the exercise with a hybrid SUV from Chinese automaker BYD.
The four-wheel-drive BYD Tang is built for China’s domestic market, and provided the team at Höganäs with the opportunity to establish a better understanding of the use of Powder Metallurgy in hybrid vehicles, as well as highlighting potential future applications. Anders Flodin, Application Development Manager at Höganäs AB, reports on the project.
The winners of this year’s Japan Powder Metallurgy Association Awards highlighted the continual developments being made by Japan’s PM industry to further expand the use of PM technology.
