Sputtering targets: The advantages of Powder Metallurgy in the production process

Though production of sputtering targets could be considered a niche application, Powder Metallurgy processes are widely used for the manufacture of a significant range of different coating source materials.

In this article, Plansee SE’s Jörg Winkler and Christian Linke review the major materials and applications of sputtered and arc-deposited thin films, describe important material and product characteristics of a sputtering target to achieve a stable coating process, and highlight the specific advantages of PM.

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.
