In addition to more than 30 pages of news from the Powder Metallurgy industry, the 80 page Summer 2013 issue of Powder Metallurgy Review magazine (Vol. 2 No. 2) includes the following articles and special features:
Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) of large PM products: An industry poised for growth
HIP technology enables the production of large PM products that cannot be manufactured by any other process, and the development of ever larger HIP systems is enabling the manufacture of significantly larger components. Such large scale systems present new opportunities for the industry and Dr Stephen J Mashl outlines the development of HIP systems and considers the potential for large PM products.
Developments in European powder compaction technology present new opportunities for PM
Continuing developments in powder compaction technology are providing ever increasing opportunities for the production of complex PM components, with advances in press systems and tooling benefitting both the hardmetal and structural parts industries. Professor Dr-Ing Paul Beiss reviews the state of the market and identifies the advances in die compaction technology for the PM industry.
Germany’s PM community meets at the 2012 Hagen Symposium
The Hagen Symposium is the annual meeting for German-speaking powder metallurgists. Dr Georg Schlieper attended the symposium on behalf of Powder Metallurgy Review and his report covers a number of key presentations from the event, as well as the awarding of the 2012 Skaupy Prize to Dr Lorenz Sigl.
PM-13: India’s annual PM conference and exhibition attracts an international audience
Organised by the Powder Metallurgy Association of India, the PM-13 International Conference & Exhibition on PM for Automotive and Engineering Industries took place in Pune, India, from February 7-9 2013. Professor Ramamohan Tallapragada provides an overview of the conference for Powder Metallurgy Review.
JPMA award winning parts offer an insight into PM technology in Japan
The winners of the Japan Powder Metallurgy Association (JPMA) 2012 Powder Metallurgy Awards highlight the capabilities of PM and demonstrate the continuing advances of Japan’s PM industry. Many of the winners are evidence of the continuing potential for PM applications in the automotive industry.
Novel routes to high density ferrous Powder Metallurgy compacts
The PM industry is continuously striving to increase the final densities of its ferrous products in order to improve mechanical and dynamic properties, or in the case of soft magnetic parts their magnetic performance. We review two papers that describe novel approaches to achieving high density ferrous PM products.
