Additive Manufacturing with metal powders: Design for Manufacture evolves into Design for Function

Additive Manufacturing offers the possibility to produce complex parts without the design constraints of traditional manufacturing routes. Components that would not have even been possible just a few years ago can now be made to high standards using a wide range of metal powders. No longer solely a prototyping technology, Additive Manufacturing is now being used for the production of series components for the most demanding applications. Juan F Isaza P and Claus Aumund-Kopp review the various processes in use as well as key application areas and present an outlook for a technology that is set to revolutionise the future use of metal powders.

Vacuum sintering and Low Pressure Carburising of PM components

In order to improve the efficiency of the sintering and heat treatment of PM alloys for high load bearing applications such as PM transmission gears, France’s ECM Technologies has developed an innovative new combined batch vacuum sintering and Low Pressure Carburising furnace. The system enables the complete thermal treatment of PM components in one step, as well as optimising the quenching and case hardening processes. ECM’s Hubert Mulin, Yves Giraud and Jean-Jacques Since and Höganäs AB’s Mats Larsson report for Powder Metallurgy Review.
