Introducing Powder Metallurgy and the PM Industry

Sept. 24, 2018
Powder metallurgy (PM) is the art of producing metal powders and net-shaped parts from those metal powders. PM components are used in your daily life - household appliances, electronics, medical equipment, vehicles, airplanes, and for defense of our country.
Powder metallurgy enables unique shape capabilities and a host of properties that provide users with creative solutions. These capabilities include material efficient processes with minimal waste; close tolerance capability; exceptional wear and strength; highly repeatability processes; and the ability to use alloys, materials, and geometries not feasible with other metal-forming processes, among other capabilities. PM processes include metal injection molding, metal additive manufacturing, and more. Learn more about the PM industry and its manufacturing capabilities on the website.
