GKN Sinter Metals to showcase expertise in Powder Metallurgy and Additive Manufacturing at Engine Expo 2016

The benefits of Additive Manufacturing as outlined by GKN Sinter Metals

GKN Sinter Metals has announced that it will showcase key Powder Metallurgy developments in engine component design at this year’s Engine Expo in Stuttgart, Germany, May 31 to June 2. The company will also give insight into its Additive Manufacturing capability and the technology’s untapped potential with a lecture at the open technology forum during the event.

GKN Sinter Metals states that it offers a broad range of experience for developing AM processes and technologies and, as a full service provider, the company is offering a one-stop solution for its customers. This includes in-house material development of water atomised and gas atomised powders, offering tailored powder solutions to match customers’ needs for consistency and purity.

The company added that it is able to support component design by using FEA based topology optimisation. By using bionic honeycomb or mesh structures, combined with topology optimisation based on differentiated material loads, the optimal load flows within a minimum amount of material can be defined. Based on a series of long-term material analysis and a strong simulation competence, GKN is enabled to optimise the structure of the components.

In-house materials test centres offer services for tensile testing, service life tests, elevated temperature testing or tribological testing.

The lecture, Additive Manufacturing – from Rapid Prototyping to Serial Manufacturing, will be presented by Simon Höges, Manager Additive Manufacturing at GKN Sinter Metals, during the forum on May 31 at 14:40. GKN Sinter Metals will exhibit on stand 3304.
