In many, but not all cases, the PM process transforms metal powder into components used for structural applications, for example, gears, bearings, connecting rods, and parts used in medical instruments. There are also times when metal powders are needed in powder form, as in the electronics industry, or for components that are not structural in nature, such as sound insulation. Powder metallurgy offers a world of material solutions to engineers and designers.
