The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) is offering a selection of publications at greatly reduced rates for a limited time. The following text books are available for just $30 each and can be ordered directly from the trade association.
Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials Processing
As an outgrowth from the best-selling Powder Metallurgy Science, published in 1984 with a second edition in 1994, this book is written from a perspective based on the laws of physics, chemistry, mechanics and dynamics, thermodynamics, kinetics and chemical engineering as applied to Powder Metallurgy and particulate materials.
International Atlas of Powder Metallurgical Microstructures
It has been over 15 years since a collection of this magnitude has been published. The authors have gathered an extensive array of microstructures, including a large selection of North American materials and presented them in a clear and concise manner. This book will lead the reader to a better understanding of raw materials, processing and products and is an essential tool for those interested in the field of Powder Metallurgy.
Hot Consolidation of Powders & Particulates
This book is an important discussion of the principles and technology associated with the hot consolidation of powders. The text focuses on the four main processes currently in commercial production: hot pressing, hot isostatic pressing, powder extrusion, and powder forging. In addition, the authors look at several other processes where applications are still in their infancy, never got past the development stage, or are of historical interest.
Fundamentals of Powder Metallurgy
This primer is a great introduction to the field of powder metallurgy. Those who are new to the field as well as seasoned professionals will benefit from this fresh look at the process and products of PM. The easy writing style of the authors makes this book as enjoyable as it is informational. Their years of expertise are brought to the reader in a personal and friendly manner that makes learning unavoidable!
Injection Molding of Metals and Ceramics
This title provides an introduction to an exciting forming technique that relies on particles mixed with thermoplastic binders to shape complex components via injection moulding. It furnishes an understanding of the steps, options, successes, and engineering attributes associated with powder injection moulding as a manufacturing process.
