Powder metallurgy (PM) is a familiar metal forming technology used to produce dense and precision components. Different powder and component forming routes can be used for the creation of an end product with specific properties for a particular application or industry. Advancements in powder metallurgy explores a range of materials and techniques used for powder metallurgy and the use of this technology across a variety of application areas.
Part one discusses the forming and shaping of metal powders and includes chapters on atomisation techniques, electrolysis and plasma synthesis of metallic nanopowders. Part two highlights specific materials and their properties including advanced powdered steel alloys, porous metals and titanium alloys. Part three reviews the manufacture and densification of PM components and explores joining techniques, process optimisation in powder component manufacturing and non-destructive evaluation of PM parts. Finally, part four focusses on the applications of PM in the automotive industry and the use of PM in the production of cutting tools and biomaterials.
Advancements in powder metallurgy is a standard reference for structural engineers and component manufacturers in the metal forming industry, professionals working in industries that use PM components and academics with a research interest in the field.
