The changing landscape of carbonyl iron and nickel powder production

Until recently, much of the global production of carbonyl metal powder was centred on manufacturers in Europe and North America. Although China has produced these powders since the 1960s, the last ten years or so has seen a rapid increase in the volume of both carbonyl nickel and carbonyl iron powders produced in this region.

In this report, Jun Shu and Lou Koehler describe the production processes and look at the changing landscape of carbonyl metal powder production.

Graphite and its applications in the Powder Metallurgy industry

With its unique structure and properties, graphite is a versatile raw material used in a wide range of industries. Graphite offers excellent electrical and thermal conductivity as well as outstanding lubrication properties and high resistance to temperature and oxidation. In the Powder Metallurgy industry, graphite is an essential additive in metal powder mixes for the production of sintered parts.

In this article, Dr Robert Feher, R&D Director at Graphit Kropfmühl GmbH, Germany, reviews the use of graphite in the Powder Metallurgy process as well as its various applications.

World PM2016: Developments in hardmetal processes and applications

Developments in the processing and application of hardmetals were the subject of a number of papers at the World PM2016 Congress, held in Hamburg, Germany, 9-13 October 2016. In this review Dr David Whittaker highlights two presentations that discuss the use of Electric Resistance Sintering and Spark Plasma Sintering to process hardmetals.

A further two presentations look at the development of a novel binder phase and the influence of numerous factors on the wear and fracture mechanisms of drill bits during drilling of reinforced concrete.
