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.

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.
