Title: Powder Metal Technologies: Designing with Innovation to Support your Unique Applications and Cost Requirements
Date: Thursday, March 23, 2017
Time: 02:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time
Duration: 1 hour
This webinar will help you understand the potential cost effective savings and design opportunities you can achieve using powder metal (PM) technologies. By combining the latest pressing technologies with newer lean materials, PM is a highly effective production method that provides economical, custom-engineered solutions for new components and VAVE initiatives. It will also show you how you can convert your components to PM from other more costly manufacturing methods.
Attendees will learn:
- Basic PM terminologies and manufacturing processes
- Basic material properties and how they compare to conventional wrought materials
- Processing applications and guidelines that will support Engineering using PM materials
- Examples of cost reductions with PM from various manufacturing methods
