Metal Powder Industries Federation: Education and technology promotion is key to PM’s future

The Metal Powder Industries Federation was established to represent and promote the North American Powder Metallurgy industry. Serving members in all sectors of the supply chain, the work of the MPIF is recognised globally, not only for its development of industry standards, but also for its continuous promotion of metal powder based technologies to end-user sectors.

Jim Adams has been Executive Director of the MPIF since early 2017 and in this exclusive interview we highlight the work of the MPIF and share his unique perspective of the North American PM industry.

Powder Metallurgy functional materials: Applications in electric vehicle manufacture

The European Powder Metallurgy Association organised its first Functional Materials Seminar at Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany, April 17, 2018. The event was established primarily to consider the potential impact of vehicle electrification on the future of the PM industry and to discuss the wide variety of PM functional materials that could find applications in new electric vehicles.

Dr David Whittaker attended the seminar on behalf of PM Review and reports on presentations from experts in both industry and academia.

Ceramitec 2018: Industry suppliers showcase the latest in metal powder processing technology

Held every three years in Munich, Germany, Ceramitec is the leading trade fair for the international ceramics industry. For many years, the trade show and accompanying conference have included a Powder Metallurgy stream, due in large part to the fact that many of the equipment suppliers exhibiting at the show provide their products not only to the ceramics industry, but also to PM manufacturers.

Dr Georg Schlieper visited Ceramitec 2018 for PM Review and interviewed a number of exhibitors who supply equipment to sintered parts manufacturers.

Sumitomo Electric: Optimising green machining for integration into a high volume production line

As the design complexity of automotive components increases, many parts makers are seeking to optimise processing steps to maintain the high levels of productivity that make Powder Metallurgy a viable option.

One option is the green machining of PM components and this was the focus of a report published by Japan’s Sumitomo Electric Sintered Alloy, Ltd. Here, the challenge was to successfully establish high volume production of variable valve timing components requiring complex green machining operations.

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.
