Powder Metallurgy in Sweden: 100 years of Development

The new book Powder Metallurgy in Sweden – 100 Years of Development provides an historical account of early PM research & development in Sweden from the 1920’s to the technology of today. It also shows how entrepreneurship and individual discoveries were groundbreaking for Swedish companies. The book is in English and is a compilation of nearly 70 authors, with long and extensive experience of all aspects of PM. It covers hard metals, sintered structural components, Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) of metal powders, diamond tools and metal AM.

NEW: Sintering Self-Study Course A Course on the Powder Metallurgy Sintering Process

Gain an understanding of the fundamental principles of the sintering process for powder metallurgy (PM) materials! This graduate-level course emphasizes the theory of sintering and includes information on the sintering behavior of a wide variety of engineered materials: metals, alloys, composites, carbides, intermetallics, etc. This technically in-depth course provides valuable knowledge for career development.

This Course contains 16 pre-recorded segments that average 60-minutes each. The Course will be open to the student for 3 months from the date of purchase.

RFI - Methods & Approaches for Sustainable AM Operations

A request for information (RFI) has been issued from the National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining (NCDMM) and America Makes to support the mission of promoting and accelerating the development and deployment of innovative, cost-effective, energy-efficient additive manufacturing (AM) technologies to meet defense and/or commercial needs. This RFI aims to better understand the current state of the AM supply chain and the opportunities, needs, and priorities which will substantiate AM sustainability, robust AM controls, and operational qualification in line with the interests of the domestic AM supply chain. Inputs may be used for developing technical scoping requirements for future project calls, workshops, event themes, etc.

Institute for Model-Based Qualification & Certification of Additive Manufacturing (IMQCAM) Announced

NASA has announced that Carnegie Mellon University and Johns Hopkins University will co-lead the Institute for Model-based Qualification & Certification of Additive Manufacturing (IMQCAM). The institute will improve computer models of metal AM parts and expand their advantage in spaceflight applications. Such parts could be utilized in rocket engines providing more flexibility to create new parts when designs change or possibly in a space station, where delivering prefabricated parts would be expensive and limiting. Certification and use of such parts requires high-accuracy predictions of their characteristics.
