Hot Isostatic Pressing as a Powder Metallurgy-based alternative to AM for large, near-net shape components

For decades, industries such as oil & gas have relied on Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) to produce large, corrosion resistant, near-net shape components from high-alloy materials.

Outside the PM industry, HIP is more widely recognised as a technology for the post-processing of AM parts than as a tried and tested powder metallurgical part manufacturing process in its own right. In this article, Jimmy Bovin, MTC Powder Solutions AB, Sweden, makes the case for HIP as the best, lesser-known alternative to Additive Manufacturing for large, near-net shape components.

Backing the right horse? Safeguarding PM part usage in a new automotive industry

No matter our personal views on electrification, we can all agree that the automotive landscape, and with it, one of PM’s leading consumer markets, is changing. Currently, much of our industry’s focus is on how best to market PM’s strengths as an EV-enhancing technology to the traditional ‘Big 5’ automakers. But is this strategy enough?

In this article, EV commentator Alex Voigt, with input from PM Review’s Emily-Jo Hopson-VandenBos, compares Tesla’s approach to that of traditional automakers, and asks whether the PM industry should keep its focus on those companies that have traditionally led the auto industry, or whether it is new relationships with flexible, innovative startups that will safeguard the future of Powder Metallurgy as a supplier to the automotive industry.

How to make metal powders. Part 3: Understanding gas atomisation and gas atomised powders

In the third instalment of our four-part series on metal powder atomisation, atomisation experts Joe Strauss and John Dunkley explore gas atomisation. Gas atomisation has in recent years seen a major uptick in interest due to its use in the production of metal powders for Additive Manufacturing.

However, gas atomisation is nothing new; the concept was first patented more than 100 years ago, and powders produced by this method have a wide range of applications on a global scale, from the production of PM superalloy and MIM powders, to solders, spherical bronze powders for filters, brazing pastes, and more.
