Advanced Materials in Powder Metallurgy
Material selection is driven by the desired properties of the finished component. Does your component need to be corrosion resistant, hard, and tough? Stainless steel might be the right choice for you. Advanced materials in powder metallurgy offer additional options including superalloys, tool steels, refractory metals, beryllium, titanium, and metal matrix composites.
A wide variety of specialty material systems are manufactured using advanced processes such as hot and cold isostatic pressing (HIP/CIP), metal injection molding (MIM), metal additive manufacturing (AM), and spray forming. In addition, certain alloy systems are produced nearly exclusively using powder metallurgy (PM) techniques.
