In addition to more than 30 pages of news from the Powder Metallurgy industry, the 72 page Spring 2014 issue of Powder Metallurgy Review magazine (Vol. 3 No. 1) includes the following articles and special features:
Optimising tooling for Powder Metallurgy: Design, materials and best practice
The optimisation of tooling is essential for ensuring improved efficiency in the manufacture of Powder Metallurgy components. David Lemon discusses the various ways in which PM companies can avoid tool failures by focussing on tool design and optimisation.
Powder Metallurgy gears: Opportunities for enhancing automotive transmission design
It has been the goal of many in recent years to apply the benefits of PM technology to the production of automotive transmission gears. In a move to demonstrate that PM has the potential for adoption by gearbox designers, engineers at Höganäs AB have for a number of years been road testing a variety of PM gears. Anders Flodin explains the current state of PM gear design at Höganäs.
PM’s new frontier: Thermoelectric materials for the energy harvesting revolution
Major car producers are working to turn waste heat from engines and exhausts into electricity using newly developed sintered thermoelectric alloys. Bernard Williams takes a look at some of the ongoing developments and potential for PM in this ground breaking technology.
Quality and productivity provide a focus for Germany’s PM community at the 2013 Hagen Symposium
The Hagen Symposium, organised by the Fachverband Pulvermetallurgie, provides an opportunity for many German-speaking powder metallurgists to meet. Dr Georg Schlieper reports from the symposium for Powder Metallurgy Review.
