Introduction to Additive Manufacturing: Part One

Additive manufacturing is a relatively recent manufacturing method which has become a key area of interest in multiple industrial sectors.
Deriving from CAD models the process can be used to create solid yet highly complex parts and pushes towards a tool-less manufacturing environment meaning improved quality and better efficiency in many cases. Continue reading

Sinter Rotary Forging: Part One

Sinter rotary forging is one of the prominent sinter forming processes and uses pressed and sintered metal powder preforms as starting material. The sinter forming technique combines the advantages associated with two well-known techniques, namely powder metallurgy and conventional forming. Continue reading

Titanium Powder Metallurgy Alloys

Titanium powder metallurgy can produce high performance and low cost titanium parts. Compared with those by conventional processes, high performance P/M titanium parts have many advantages: excellent mechanical properties, near-net-shape and low cost, being easy to fabricate complex shape parts, full dense material, no inner defect, fine and uniform microstructure, no texture, no segregation, low internal stress, excellent stability of dimension and being easy to fabricate titanium based composite parts.
