PM Process Engineer
Charles P. Ashdown
Hands-on, entrepreneurial problem solver. Looking to assist P/M companies to greater success with technology.
Focus on metallurgical process technology, and the way that it impacts material properties. That interest started with melt-spinning to make powder, and the capability of producing sub-micron crystallized structures, after annealing from the amorphous state, with very interesting mechanical properties. It continued into gas atomization, focusing on producing the finest powder possible, at the highest yield, for MIM and lately AM. I have advised our customers extensively on debinding and sintering to improve properties for both applications.
