International Journal of Powder Metallurgy (Princeton, New Jersey) | Year: 2011

The sustainable value and metal forming processes of the powder metallurgy (PM) industry are discussed. When evaluating a component such as the gear shape, it is found that production of the gear by chip-generating machining result in 40% of the material being machined away and discarded. A comparison of the percentage of original material processed to final product for several metal-forming manufacturing processes shows a PM with a 95% material utilization. A survey of the PM industry shows that various fabricators and powder producers have achieved ISO 14001 registration of their facilities. The PM process require the use of graphite or other lubricants in the compaction stage, but recent improvements in both binder and lubricant technologies have resulted in most companies shifting from chemical systems using. Proper design of components can result in combining two or more components into one by eliminating unnecessary redundant surfaces or combining mechanical features to achieve the necessary mechanical action.

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%.

Today's designer of structural components is faced with a plethora of choices for manufacturing his design. Traditional manufacturing processes are well covered in academic circles and the literature developed supporting those processes over the last hundred years of manufacturing experience is also well developed. The competitive nature of manufacturing today requires analysis beyond "fit, form and function". In the last 30 years a number of alternative manufacturing processes have been developed and are less well known within the design community but have the potential to provide added value or cost savings when the manufacturing process deployed is appropriate for the design's application and circumstances of its use. The author will highlight and compare and contrast a number of metal powder-based manufacturing solutions with examples of successful deployment in commercial situations. Copyright © 2015 MS&T15®.

The powder-metallurgy industry is growing in 2011 with investments in new technologies and innovative processes. Sim Narasimhan, FAPMI, vice president, chief technology officer, Hoeganaes Corporation, confirmed that Hoeganaes has introduced a new family of manganese-containing steels (ANCORBOND FLM alloys) with superior performance. These new nickel- and copper-free steels have very good compressibility and hardenability to meet stringent automotive applications. In addition, the company has developed technology for new 2P2C soft magnetic insulated materials that provide higher green densities, exceeding 7.6 g/cm3 after compaction at 800 MPa. Capstan Atlantic, Wrentham, Massachusetts, is adapting its net-shape gear-tooth precision technologies to new non-gear applications. The Orton Ceramic Foundation, Ohio, has introduced the TempTab 400 and TempTab 700 systems to monitor sintering temperatures at 1,120°C and 1400°C.

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.

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.

The MPIF Technical Board, chaired by Russ Chernenkoff, senior project engineer, Metaldyne LLC, Plymouth, Michigan, is assessing how PM can take advantage of the growing use of alternative energy sources and lightweight materials. Metal powder companies have introduced new materials to meet rising performance demands for PM parts and products. Hoeganaes Corporation, Cinnaminson, New Jersey, is working on several advanced developments for ferrous PM materials, report Sim Narasimhan, chief technical officer and vice president of technology, and Michael Marucci, director, research and development. NAH believes that PM's net-shape capability relating to sustainability gives the technology an advantage over competitive materials and processes. By promoting higher material utilization and lower energy inputs, PM can position itself as the manufacturing technology that has minimal impact on the environment.
