In a recent blog post, Allied Sinterings, Inc., Danbury, Connecticut, USA, reports on the benefits of using Powder Metallurgy for the production of a number of components in electric vehicles, highlighting the increase in demand for actuators and other motion control applications.

With the electric vehicle industry expected to have a compound annual growth rate of 29% over the next decade, there are a number of challenges facing automakers, explains Allied Sinterings. Components need to be lightweight and have better thermal management to increase efficiency, actuated auxiliary system components must be far more compact and noise vibration harshness (NVH) levels must be reduced to address driver expectations and comfort.

To address these issues, the Allied Sinterings post explains that PM components are quieter than traditional parts made with laminations, offering compact and lightweight design capabilities without compromising strength. Powder Metallurgy can also offer enhanced magnetic performance, which improves the overall performance and efficiency of an electric vehicle.

Also discussed in the post are a number of other applications that demonstrate the suitability of Powder Metallurgy for EV component production. These include:

  • By-wire applications
  • Electrified gears and gear boxes
  • Sensors and cameras
  • Electric pumps
  • Electric motor stators
  • Batteries
  • Linear actuators
  • Cooling and thermal systems
  • E-drive traction motors

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.
