Powder Metallurgy aluminium components offer lightweight solutions and high volume production

Powder Metallurgy aluminium components provide design engineers with a lightweight, energy saving option for a range of applications. The process can offer unique material properties along with the ability to produce high volumes of complex aluminium components. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Schubert and Dr.-Ing. Thomas Weissgärber, of Germany’s Fraunhofer IFAM in Dresden, describe the production process and provide a number of industrial case studies to highlight the possibilities of aluminium PM.

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.
