The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF)’s Industry Development Board has released the latest video in its four-part educational series on Powder Metallurgy.

The new video, on Conventional Press-and-Sinter Powder Metallurgy, is hosted by John Engquist of FAPMI, previously president of the Center for Powder Metallurgy Technology (CPMT), and covers an overview of conventional PM including a discussion on aspect ratio, a process overview, and a look at several PM Design Excellence Awards components.

The first video in the series, Introducing Powder Metallurgy and the PM Industry, was launched in 2017. The final two videos in the series will tackle Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) and metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) and are expected to be released later in 2018.

The four-part series is based on the popular PickPM Day Seminar that has been presented to the end-user community over the last several years during the annual POWDERMET conference.
