The work that needs to be done in the area of sustainability manufacturing within the powder metallurgy (PM) industry are discussed. Successful eco-advantage companies in this field realize they have the best chance for success when they design innovative products to help customers solve environmental problems, push their suppliers to conform, and be part of the larger solution. Manufacturers have the opportunity to impact sustainability on two levels, their process or operation or via the products produced. In some cases the benefits in sustainable or environmental terms for products greatly outweigh the process opportunities. About 20%-25% of the PM industry's powder producers and fabricators have already begun the process of addressing sustainability issues by developing EMS, earning ISO 14001 certification. Developing a good environmental reputation as an industry can help fend off regulatory mandates, improve the financial standing of the industry by demonstrating reduced environmental risks to investors.

The article describes how metal injection molding (MIM) business in North America, including metal powder and feedstock suppliers, mold builders, and MIM part makers, recorded strong gains in 2013. Prospects for 2014 are still positive, but growth may be more moderate. Leading sporting-arms manufacturers have increased capacities for new products that rely on MIM technology and are soliciting quotes for new MIM part designs. The US Department of Justice Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms and Explosives reports dramatic gains in US firearms production since 2005. Stainless steels continue to dominate MIM materials with 17-4PH as the most-used stainless alloy. In the 2013 MIMA survey, 11 MIM parts producers gave the following material percentages (by weight) of parts shipped: stainless steel 42%, steel 29%, soft magnetic 10%, tungsten alloys 1%, and other materials 18%.

Winning parts in the 2013 Powder Metallurgy (PM) Design Excellence Awards competition aptly demonstrate that the technology is not resting on its laurels. While capitalizing on PM's traditional strengths-net-shape capabilities that contribute to Lean operations, energy and materials savings that enable more sustainable manufacturing, and significant economic advantages that have always been a hallmark-these exemplary components, fabricated via both conventional PM and metal injection molding (MIM), signal a push into new territories. While solidifying past gains, designers and fabricators are using creative solutions to overcome previous obstacles to penetrate new niches. They're using PM's flexibility to push forward new concepts, and fine tuning process controls to achieve results not possible before. Source

The powder metallurgy (PM) industry is alive and well, looking forward to more years of growth based on continuous investment in technology. While there are no dramatic technology breakthroughs on the horizon, steady incremental developments are leading the way. The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF), individual companies, and universities are all staking projects through R&D in order to expand PM's reach globally. Source
