Powder Metallurgy Touches Your Life, Part 1

Powder Metallurgy Touches Your Life Part 1Powder 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.


Powder Metallurgy Touches Your Life, Part 2

Powder Metallurgy Touches Your Life Part 2Powder 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 Introduction to Hot Isostatic Pressing

An Introduction to Hot Isostatic PressingThis is an introduction to the technology of hot isostatic pressing (HIP), which is generally used to produce large powder metallurgy (PM)parts to near-net shapes of varied complexity. The hermetic container for the powder is made of metal or glass and the pressurizing medium is a gas (inert argon or helium). At the elevated temperatures the process employs, the hermetic container deforms plastically to compact the powder within it. The combination of heat and pressure during the process eliminates the need for a supplemental sintering step. Produced by the Isostatic Pressing Association.


Design Decision Guide for Powder Metallurgy

Design Decision Guide for Powder MetallurgyThis video presents a brief decision process and guide for determining feasibility of PM technology for successful PM part production. John Engquist, former president of the Center for Powder Metallurgy Technology (CPMT), is the presenter.


Metal Injection Molding Touching Your Life, Part 1

PM and MIM Touching Your Life Part 1This video, in two parts, showcases the fabrication capabilities of the various technologies known collectively as powder metallurgy (PM), with particular focus on metal injection molding. Part 1 of the program uses dozens of examples of actual components manufactured for many different applications to illustrate the benefits all the various PM technologies offer parts designers and engineers.


Metal Injection Molding Touching Your Life, Part 2

PM and MIM Touching Your Life Part 2This video, in two parts, showcases the fabrication capabilities of the various technologies known collectively as powder metallurgy (PM), with particular focus on metal injection molding. Part 2 of the program describes the metal injection molding process, providing design engineers with all the facts needed to understand why, if they're designing an intricate metal part, they should think of MIM from the start.


The Sustainability Continuum

The Sustainability ContinuumPowder metallurgy is a recognized "green" technology. Fabricators of PM components find themselves ideally positioned within the Sustainability Continuum—the unbroken series of links connecting every part of the production "food chain," beginning with the most vital link: the consumer. The metal-forming technology PM fabricators boast of is a more sustainable process than competing forming technologies on several levels. But beyond a sustainable fabrication process, what PM companies can offer their customers are the means to make THEIR processes and THEIR end products more sustainable.
