Innovation drives Powder Metallurgy structural components forward in the automotive industry

The Powder Metallurgy process offers a number of distinct advantages over other metal working technologies. It allows companies to reduce manufacturing costs, improve properties and incorporate a range of unique characteristics into components used in a wide range of applications. There have been a number of factors driving developments in the ferrous PM structural parts sector over recent years. Dr David Whittaker reviews the advances in both materials and processing technology that make PM the first choice for structural parts production.

Increasing quality and productivity in PM through automated handling systems

There can be a high risk of damage to green parts though poor handling procedures during the production process. The increased complexity of PM parts makes them ever more susceptible to cracks when in the green state. Automation of the handling of parts through all stages of production, from powder press to sizing press, can prevent costly failures, leading to improved quality and increased productivity. Lutz Lackner of Dorst Technologies GmbH describes a number of options available when considering the automation of handling systems.

Gas alloying of low alloy Powder Metallurgy parts for improved mechanical properties

Pownite is a new (patent applied) post sintering gas alloying process developed at Fluidtherm Technology’s Research and Development Centre in India. The process improves the mechanical properties of low alloy sintered parts by controlled nitrogen diffusion in the metal matrix of the parts at a temperature between 590°C and 700°C. In this article N Gopinath and V Raghunathan of Fluidtherm Technology describe the process and provide examples of its application.
