Introducing Powder Metallurgy and the PM Industry

What is powder metallurgy? Powder metallurgy—or PM—is a metal-forming process performed by heating compacted metal powders to just below their melting points. PM comprises several different technologies for fabricating semi-dense and fully dense components. This video discusses a basic overview of several powder metallurgy processes including press-and-sinter, metal injection molding, isostatic pressing, and metal additive manufacturing, and covers an broad overview of the PM industry.


Conventional Press-and-Sinter Powder Metallurgy

What is conventional press-and-sinter powder metallurgy (PM)? In this video, industry expert John Engquist, former president of the Center for Powder Metallurgy Technology, reviews the basics of conventional PM. PM uses metal powder molded by compaction in a closed die. Molded 3D green compacts are sintered and finished to produce a variety of parts used by automotive, recreation, agriculture, hydraulics, and other markets.


Powder Metallurgy Touches Your Life, Part 1

Powder Metallurgy: The Preferred Metal-Forming Solution, showcases the fabrication capabilities of the various technologies known collectively as powder metallurgy (PM). Built on the theme, Every day, in some way, PM touches your life, the 2-part program uses dozens of examples of actual components manufactured for many different applications to illustrate the benefits PM offers parts designers and engineers.


An Overview of Metal Injection Molding

What is metal injection molding (MIM)? Industry expert John Enquist, former president of the Center for Powder Metallurgy Technology, reviews MIM while discussing technical information including how to know if a component is a good fit for MIM. Learn more about MIM at PickPM.org
