Sweden’s Höganäs AB has unveiled its new powder mix, Intralube® GS, which it launched through a webinar on June 17, 2020. The webinar was hosted by Fredrik Vinnerborg, Competence Technology Leader, who discussed the benefits of Intralube GS with Höganäs’ product experts Åsa Ahlin and Per Knutsson.

The company explains that with so many exhibitions and conferences in the metal powder industry being cancelled due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), Höganäs decided to launch its new powder mix virtually.

“As a leading company in our business, we choose to be proactive and work in new ways to serve our customers in these trying times,” stated Henrik Jarl, who heads the marketing communications team.

Höganäs states that its new powder mix improves the green strength of compacted parts by up to 80% compared to other powder mixes. Thanks to this green strength, the company says that Intralube GS increases customers’ production efficiency, reduces scrap rates and helps them work in a more sustainable way.

“We have seen a need for improved green strength of compacted parts,” commented Åsa Ahlin, Manager for Organic Material development. “Intralube GS enables green machining, which saves a lot of time and drastically reduces production cost. At the same time, we have been able to keep all other properties at a high level, for instance compressibility and lubrication.”

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.
