What are Soft Magnetic Composites?

While there are numerous production technologies design engineers can rely on today like machining or powder metallurgy, metal injection molding is a cost-effective technology that's finally come into its own.

Light Weighting of Structural Automotive Components Using High Strength Powder Metallurgy Aluminum Alloys

The intense effort by automotive companies to improve gas mileage and meet mandated CAFÉ Standards is aided by enabling vehicular mass reduction technologies. One area of such research is the application of appropriate powder metallurgy (PM) materials such as the alloys of aluminum, titanium, and magnesium. Each material option presents certain challenges that need to […]

High Nickel Alloys Offering a Combination of High Strength and High Impact Properties

ABSTRACT High nickel steels offer the opportunity to produce powder metallurgy components with excellent high strength and ductility combinations. These alloys are a sinter-hardenable class of materials that do not require conventional heat treatment processes to develop these unique properties. The alloys must be sintered at high temperatures in order to obtain the value of […]
