Powder Metallurgy has always been green. Now, we need to learn to talk about it

Being a green technology, PM should be reaping the rewards as the automotive industry seeks to reduce its environmental impact. Instead, the PM industry appears to be preparing for a decline, as the traditional PM parts used in the internal combustion engine fade out of use. Now, when it could most be thriving on its green credentials, press and sinter PM runs the risk of being overlooked as a solution for e-drive applications.

The main reason, believes Barton White, CEO, Kymera International, is a lack of promotion of PM to the C-suite, executive-level automotive manufacturers. Here, he reflects on the changes the auto industry has undergone in recent history and considers how PM can find a place in the new, electrified landscape.

39th Hagen Symposium 2021: Sustainable solutions and new markets for Powder Metallurgy

Following a year’s postponement as a result of COVID-19, the 39th Hagen Symposium finally took place from November 25–26, 2021. Organised by Germany’s Fachverband Pulvermetallurgie, this long-anticipated event brought together the German-speaking PM community for two days of high-level technical presentations on the topic of sustainable solutions and new markets for Powder Metallurgy.

Dr Georg Schlieper attended the symposium on behalf of PM Review, and here reports on the key takeaways from a programme whose theme in 2021 aimed to help PM cement its place in a more sustainable future.

How to make metal powders. Part 2: Understanding water atomisation and water atomised powders

In the Winter 2021 issue of PM Review, we introduced the first instalment in our four-part series on metal powder atomisation, in which two masters of atomisation, Joe Strauss and John Dunkley, introduced the fundamental principles of atomising technology and atomised powders. Now, in the second instalment in the series, they explore one of the most widely used metal powder production methods – water atomisation. This long-established technology is used to produce a vast range of metal powders for many industrial applications, including press and sinter PM and MIM, and is now making inroads into metal AM.
