High-performance premixes for increased production rates and optimum surface finish

Research engineers at Rio Tinto Metal Powders, Canada, and Metalsinter S.r.l, Italy, have been working closely to optimise the compaction stage of the Powder Metallurgy process. In order to increase productivity in component production, the use of a high-performance premix has been reported as a method to increase compaction speed, whilst maintaining excellent surface finishes.

In this article, Rio Tinto’s Vincent Paris reports on the work and concludes that the selection of lubricants must be carefully evaluated in collaboration with the powder supplier and the part manufacturer.
