What is Powder Metallurgy?
The powder metallurgy process has many advantages compared to other metal forming technologies such as forging, metal casting or machining. One advantage is cost effectiveness. With powder metallurgy you greatly reduce post-production processes such as metal removal procedures. This drastically reduces yield losses in manufacture and thereby lower total costs.
In addition, the process has a lower energy consumption in comparison to other production technologies.
