Strong surge in China’s PM part and powder production

August 27, 2010

The China Machine Powder Metallurgy Association (CMPMA) reports that production of PM machine parts surged by 62.4% in the first half of 2010 to 73,606 tonnes compared with the same period in 2009. The figure is based on the production returns of 46 Chinese PM producers.

The CMPMA reported a 59.6% increase in Q1 of 2010 when the PM industry reported a total production of 32,243 tonnes.

According to China’s Steel Association iron powder production in China reached a new record of 295,000 tonnes in 2009 of which 155,000 tonnes was the reduced iron powder grade and 137,000 tonnes water atomized iron and steel powders.

China also produced 495 tonnes of carbonyl iron powder and 1200 tonnes of electrolytic iron powder in 2009. The Association also reported that 8,200 tonnes of electrolytic copper powders and 8,700 tonnes of copper alloy powders were produced in China in 2009.

    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.
