Automotive teardown: Dismantling of three modern vehicles to discover current and potential use for PM

In order to establish a better understanding of the use of Powder Metallurgy components in modern automobiles, a team of engineers from Höganäs AB recently stripped back three new vehicles to their component parts.

As well as discovering the exact content of PM in each vehicle, the team were able to identify numerous components that could easily be converted to PM. Anders Flodin, Application Development Manager at Höganäs AB, reports on the findings of the project.

 

Lower volume applications for Powder Metallurgy at ASCO: Opportunities, challenges and best practices

ASCO Sintering, based in Commerce, California, USA, is an employee owned contract manufacturer of Powder Metallurgy components. The company has taken a novel approach to addressing a common situation found in manufacturing; namely how to address lower volume application opportunities in the marketplace.

In this exclusive report, Larry Totzke discovers how the company has succeeded in the low volume segment of the market.

 

Understanding the stages to successful delubrication of Powder Metallurgy components

The Gasbarre Furnace Group, a division of Gasbarre Products, offers a comprehensive spectrum of industrial heat treating equipment, engineering, technology and commercial-based solutions through its three companies, Sinterite, C.I. Hayes and J. L. Becker. In this article, Sinterite’s Steven Smith discusses the important process of delubrication in the sintering of Powder Metallurgy components.

 

Holzapfel’s Sinter Surface Solutions: A reliable process for impregnating and plating PM components

Powder Metallurgy has numerous technological advantages for the production of structural components. However, the process has certain disadvantages when it comes to surface finishing. Sinter Surface Solutions, a two-stage method developed by the Holzapfel Group, is reported to offer a reliable process for the impregnation and subsequent plating of sintered materials.

In this article, Michael Immel, Innovation and Project Manager, Holzapfel Group, explains the process.
