Titanium PM: Developments and opportunities in a sector poised for growth

PM is an attractive approach for the cost effective production of high integrity titanium components that deliver improved performance in aerospace and other applications where superior mechanical properties and excellent corrosion resistance are an advantage. In this comprehensive review Dr F H (Sam) Froes discusses various aspects of titanium PM, from powder production to consolidation methods that include the Blended Elemental approach, Pre-Alloyed techniques, Additive Manufacturing and Spray Deposition. Information on recent technical developments and market size is included, as well as predictions on future industry growth.

Powder Metallurgy standards:Supporting the growth of a global industry

The development of standards for use in the Powder Metallurgy industry dates back to the 1930s. It wasn’t however until 1968 that the International Standards Organisation (ISO) began to adopt PM standards via the formation of Technical Committee TC 119 and today the work of that committee continues. In this article Dr Brian James looks at why the industry needs standards and highlights what purpose they serve. The development of PM standards, greatly influenced by national bodies and PM trade associations, is discussed. The article also reviews recent developments and highlights ongoing activities as standards evolve and adapt to new processes and technologies.

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.
