AIMS to promote Powder Metallurgy at Advanced Engineering Show UK

November 3, 2014

Advanced Interactive Materials Science Limited (AIMS) will be showcasing its range of Powder Metallurgy based technology at the Advanced Engineering UK 2014 show taking place at the NEC, Birmingham, from 11 to 12 November.

The annual show has for the first time an area dedicated to Performance Metal Engineering as a response to the increasing demands for higher performance components in terms of strength, functionality, deformation resistance, corrosion resistance, high temperature capability and sustainability.

AIMS will feature its Sagittite range and near-net-shaping capabilities from its stand in the exhibition (Stand i110). “We have seen growing demand both domestically and internationally for our Sagittite range of Powder Metallurgy products that use near-net shaping techniques. This process uses powder to form a solid structure, thus enabling components to be manufactured without the need for second stage machining, and this exhibition will give us the opportunity to showcase the advancements we have made in this area,” stated Geoff Archer, AIMS’ Technical Director.

“At the leading edge of manufacturing technology, these techniques enhance the saving of energy, materials and labour costs, whilst allowing complex structures to be made from this family of metal matrix composite materials,” added Archer.

Amongst its products on display will be AIMS’ patented near-net shaped helicoidal motor stator featuring a telemetry hole, which is targeted at the oil and gas industry. Until now it has not been possible to incorporate a hole through a metal stator that can resist the abrasive, corrosive and erosive conditions of modern day drilling techniques.
