The MPIF has announced the publication of its 2016 edition of Standard Test Methods for Metal Powders and Powder Metallurgy Products. The MPIF Standard Test Methods publication contains 42 standards covering terminology and recommended methods of test for metal powders, Powder Metallurgy and injection moulded parts, metallic filters, and PM equipment.
The most current versions of these standards, which are used in the manufacture of both metal powder and Powder Metallurgy products, are required by Quality Assurance programs in order to maintain full compliance.
The 2016 edition contains revisions to 27 standards, including major rewrites of Standards 10 (PM Tensile Properties) and 32 (Estimating Particle Size Using Air Permeability) and includes new Precision Statements for five standards.
A new General Information VI section has been added to this edition that provides details (QR codes and Internet links) on viewing educational video clip demonstrations of the working mechanics of a number of cited test methods.
Publication of the 2016 edition of this standard renders the 2012 edition (and prior editions) obsolete and the MPIF states that previous editions should be no longer distributed and destroyed.
