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
