As the saying goes, “Seeing
is believing!” This couldn’t be any truer than it is in the case
of PM parts. To realize just how varied the possibilities are with PM,
how uniquely suited the solutions offered by this manufacturing process are,
you’ve got to see it with your own eyes.
To help you do just that, we’re providing two great resources here.
The first is a collection of case studies that feature the whole gamut of
applications, materials, and manufacturing techniques available with powder
metallurgy, including detailed discussions of the process, material, mechanical
property, and design considerations.
The second is an archive of award-winning
parts. These are parts that have
won awards in the annual International PM Design Competition sponsored by
MPIF, which are presented at a gala luncheon during the annual technical
conference. Here, you can search for parts by market segment or by competition
category, for any year indexed in the archive.
Finally, to mark the 50th year that MPIF has held a competition for excellence in part design, a display featuring a 50-year timeline was produced that was featured at the trade exhibition during the PM2014 World Congress. We hope that you enjoy reviewing this showcase of award-winning designs in our History of PM Parts Design Competition.
