Summer 2014 issue of Powder Metallurgy Review available for free download

May 3, 2014

Powder Metallurgy Review Summer 2014 available for free download - PMR-Summer-2014-enewsThe 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 the publication’s website.
The Summer 2014 (Vol. 3 No. 2) issue includes a detailed look at metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes and applications. The review offers an insight into the development of the technology to-date. Case studies illustrate just how revolutionary the freedom to “design for function” rather than “design for manufacture” will be on component development in the future.

A review of the second International Titanium Powder Processing, Consolidation and Metallurgy Conference, which took place in New Zealand, December 2-4 2013, includes the developments in both titanium PM and AM processing.

There is also an extensive 23 page review of the key non-ferrous powders used in the PM industry. The article looks at production and properties of copper, aluminium, titanium and nickel powders.


In this issue:

Additive Manufacturing with metal powders: Design for Manufacture evolves into Design for Function

Additive Manufacturing offers the possibility to produce complex parts without the design constraints of traditional manufacturing routes. Components that would not have even been possible just a few years ago can now be made to high standards using a wide range of metal powders. No longer solely a prototyping technology, Additive Manufacturing is now being used for the production of series components for the most demanding applications. Juan F Isaza P and Claus Aumund-Kopp review the various processes in use as well as key application areas and present an outlook for a technology that is set to revolutionise the future use of metal powders.


Titanium PM 2013 Conference: The impact of impurities, advances in porous titanium and titanium Additive Manufacturing

The second International Titanium Powder Processing, Consolidation and Metallurgy Conference, PM Titanium 2013, took place in Hamilton, New Zealand, from December 2-4 2013. The event attracted over 80 participants from around the world to discuss the latest advances in the field of titanium Powder Metallurgy. Prof Ma Qian of RMIT University (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology) reports on selected highlights from the conference on behalf of Powder Metallurgy Review.


Vacuum sintering and Low Pressure Carburising of PM components

In order to improve the efficiency of the sintering and heat treatment of PM alloys for high load bearing applications such as PM transmission gears, France’s ECM Technologies has developed an innovative new combined batch vacuum sintering and Low Pressure Carburising furnace. The system enables the complete thermal treatment of PM components in one step, as well as optimising the quenching and case hardening processes. ECM’s Hubert Mulin, Yves Giraud and Jean-Jacques Since and Höganäs AB’s Mats Larsson report for Powder Metallurgy Review.


Non-ferrous powder production: Manufacturing methods and properties of copper, aluminium, titanium and nickel powders

This extensive 23 page review of key non-ferrous powders used in the Powder Metallurgy industry focuses on the production and properties of copper, aluminium, titanium and nickel powder. Professor Oleg Neikov, from the Institute for Problems of Materials Science in Kiev, Ukraine, identifies the methods available for manufacturing these powders including detailed descriptions of the atomisation process, mechanical grinding, and electrochemical methods. A number of key powder properties are also listed.
