The latest issue of Powder Metallurgy Review, the magazine for the PM industry, has just been published and is available to download free of charge from www.ipmd.net.
This 80 page issue includes the following articles and reports:
Introduction to Metallography for PM: Part 1, Sample preparation techniques
Metallography is the study of the physical structure of metals using microscopy. The process has many advantages as a method to characterise PM products and helps to ensure product quality and understand issues that arise. In part one of our Introduction to Metallography for PM, Thomas F Murphy, Hoeganaes Corporation, USA, looks at how best to prepare samples for the process.
Atomising Systems Ltd: Making the equipment that makes the powder for over 20 years
Atomising Systems Ltd builds and installs metal atomisers throughout the world for a wide range of applications as well as manufacturing a range of specialist metal powders. Dr David Whittaker reports on a visit to the company.
Kanthal APMT: Making high temperature sintering more cost competitive
Kanthal APMT is an advanced FeCrAlMo alloy manufactured by Sandvik Heating Technology that is ideally suited to high temperature furnace applications. Bo Jönsson and Roger Berglund present the alloy’s basic properties and describe several applications within PM where there is the potential to increase sintering temperatures and extend the lifetime of critical components.
AMPM2014 Conference Review: Controlling component properties and performance in Additive Manufacturing
The Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy (AMPM) conference took place in Orlando, Florida, from May 18-20, 2014. We report on the three presentations that addressed the challenges of controlling component properties and performance.
Advances in PM materials and process developments at the PM2014 World Congress
