TAT Technologies has released a video which aims to explain the sintering process used in Powder Metallurgy. Aimed to help viewers visualise the journey taken by a PM part from one end to the other of a typical sintering furnace, the two-minute video shows the physical, mechanical and metallurgical transformations undertaken by Fe-Cu-Carbon-Lube green PM parts in a two-hour sintering cycle.

The video is available to view for free via YouTube and offers a simple visual reference for the internal processes that take place when PM material is sintered cleanly and efficiently. Click here to view now.

TAT Technologies runs a series of popular sintering courses from its training centre in St. Mary’s, Pennsylvania, USA.  The courses, ‘Preparation for Better Sintering’ and ‘Sintering – Ferrous PM’, are aimed at employees in the PM industry who want to learn more about the necessary fundamentals of delubing and sintering.  Both offer hands-on training and have common objectives.

The company has announced that the next dates for its sintering courses will be October 16–19, 2018 (Preparation for Better Sintering), and October 22–25, 2018 (Sintering — Ferrous 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.
