Höganäs’ fourth reinvention: Creating sustainable metal powders for automotive electrification

The automotive industry is replacing its core technology – the Internal Combustion Engine. This has meant cost-efficiency programmes across the industry and strict priorities to finance the transformation to an electrified future. What does this mean for the global automotive supply chain and, within it, the Powder Metallurgy industry?

As the world’s largest metal powder producer, Sweden’s Höganäs AB has adopted a new approach to product development which it believes will support the automotive industry’s future demands. Lars Österlind reports.

Powder Metallurgy in China: Markets, applications and the impact of vehicle electrification

Over the past three decades, China has grown into a powerhouse for Powder Metallurgy parts production. Supported by a thriving and diversified domestic market for PM parts, domestically-owned PM companies are now competing with international market leaders. China’s PM industry, however, faces the same challenges as the rest of the world’s producers – the transition to vehicle electrification.

Here, Prof Cao Yang, Deputy General Manager of NBTM group and Deputy Secretary General of China General Machine Components Industry Association Powder Metallurgy Branch (CMPMA), and Dr Yau Hung Chiou (Dr Q), share their insights.

Taking control of your metal powder supply chain: Blue Power’s solutions for in-house atomisation

Driven in large part by the rise of the metal Additive Manufacturing industry, demand for specialist metal powders is increasing. Such profound changes in the market for metal powders have stimulated the development of innovative processes for cost-effective in-house production. One important player in this area is Indutherm Erwärmungsanlagen GmbH, with its subsidiary Blue Power Casting Systems GmbH.

Dr Georg Schlieper recently visited these companies and reports on their solutions for the production and classification of fine metal powders in small to medium volumes.

JPMA Awards 2022: PM process innovations supporting the route to carbon neutrality

Whilst Powder Metallurgy is already recognised as a green production technology compared to processes such as machining and casting, last year’s Japan Powder Metallurgy Association (JPMA) awards offered insight into how further improvements to PM’s green credentials can be achieved. Innovations range from reducing the machining of PM parts through a push towards net-shape production, combining multiple PM parts into one, limiting carburising and quenching, and minimising material usage.
