Teardown showcases applications for PM in hybrid electric vehicle market

Following on from a teardown project in 2017, where a team of engineers at Höganäs AB stripped back three new vehicles to their component parts, the company recently repeated the exercise with a hybrid SUV from Chinese automaker BYD.

The four-wheel drive BYD Tang is built for China’s domestic market, and provided the team at Höganäs with the opportunity to establish a better understanding of the use of Powder Metallurgy in hybrid vehicles, as well as highlighting potential future applications. Anders Flodin, Application Development Manager at Höganäs AB, reports on the project.

Euro PM2019: Manipulating the sintered microstructures of hard materials

A technical session at the Euro PM2019 Congress, organised by the European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) and held in Maastricht, the Netherlands, October 13-16, 2019, examined a variety of means to manipulate the sintered microstructures of hard materials (cemented carbides and cermets). The session featured one of the congress’s five selected keynote papers, supported by three further papers on the subject.

In this report, Dr David Whittaker provides an overview of the four presentations and highlights the work undertaken.

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.
