MIM in the digital age: Simulation technologies to
help the industry compete in the 21st century

It is a fact that the vast majority of defects in MIM components occur during injection moulding. The latest moulding simulation technology not only anticipates these defects before tooling costs are incurred, but can also be used to automatically generate optimised tool and runner designs by analysing multiple variations of gate location and type.

Dr Götz Hartmann, MAGMA GmbH, and Timo Gebauer, SIGMA GmbH, explain how simulation technologies can today be used to enhance new MIM part development.

 

PSI Ltd: Celebrating thirty years of innovation in gas atomiser production

Phoenix Scientific Industries Ltd (PSI) was founded thirty years ago with the goal of developing gas atomised metal powders for the then emerging Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) industry. Since then, the company has continuously developed its atomising technology in response to the evolving application areas for gas atomised metal powders, notably in the Metal Injection Moulding industry and the more recently developing Additive Manufacturing processes.

Bill Hopkins discusses the company’s story and comments on a recent move into metal powder production.

 

POWDERMET2017: Advances in the processing of 430L stainless steel, Ti6Al4V and nickel-base superalloy CM247LC

Two sessions at the POWDERMET2017 International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials, Las Vegas, USA, June 13-16, 2017, focused on developments in materials processed by Metal Injection Moulding.

In the following report Dr David Whittaker reviews three papers that cover advances in the processing and properties of MIM 430L, the microstructural control of MIM Ti6Al4V and the influence of heat treatment on MIM nickel-base superalloy CM247LC.

 

POWDERMET2017: Innovative technologies support the control of moulding and sintering

In our second report from the POWDERMET2017 International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials, Dr David Whittaker reviews three papers that outlined the development of aids to support the control of PIM processing.

These specifically addressed the mouldability of low pressure PIM feedstocks, the influence of feedstock properties on PIM of Lead Zirconate Titanate (PZT) and the evaluation of a ceramic temperature monitoring device for sintering furnaces.
