Toyota Motor Corporation is set to resume production at all its manufacturing bases around the world for the first time since February 2020, it has been reported. 

The company’s Venezuela assembly plant is scheduled to resume operations on July 14, following closure for a month due to the coronavirus (COVID-19). Production at its other global facilities, located in more than twenty countries, has already restarted in stages over the last five months.

Toyota is reported to have said it expected global vehicle demand would continue its gradual recovery in the second half of 2020, and that its global production would also recover slowly as a result.

The company said its global vehicle production in the second quarter of 2020 was estimated at around 60% of last year’s level. Group production in the first five months of the year, including the Toyota, Lexus, Daihatsu and Hino brands, was down by 22.6% year on year at 3,399,107 units with May output down 56.5% to 408,842 units.

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.
