Introduction to Metallography for Powder Metallurgy:
Part 2, revealing and examining the microstructure

Metallography is the study of the physical structure of metals using microscopy. The process has many advantages as a method to characterise Powder Metallurgy products and helps to ensure product quality and understand issues that arise. In part two of our introduction to this important science, Thomas F Murphy, Hoeganaes Corporation, USA, identifies the best techniques to reveal and examine the microstructure of Powder Metallurgy samples.

Super Abrasive Machining: A secondary process for reducing the cost of complex component manufacture

Super Abrasive Machining is a secondary process that allows the forming of complex components from simplified sintered compacts. Through the correct adoption of the technology, savings can be made in both upstream and downstream aspects of the Powder Metallurgy process. Rocco Petrilli, President, CEO and Managing Partner of Super Abrasive Machining Innovations LLC, outlines the process and demonstrates how the technique can reduce costs and open up new possibilities for the PM industry

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.
