Powder metallurgy (PM) is a manufacturing process that involves the production of metal parts from metal powders. The process typically involves creating a metal powder, compacting the powder into a desired shape, and then heating the compacted powder to form a solid part.
Powder metallurgy is a cost-effective and efficient method for producing complex and intricate metal parts, and it is frequently used in industries such as aerospace, automotive, and medical device manufacturing. The process allows for the creation of parts with a wide range of physical properties, including high strength, wear resistance, and dimensional stability. Additionally, PM is often used to create parts that are difficult or impossible to produce through other manufacturing methods, such as parts with complex internal geometries.
