Teardown showcases applications for PM in hybrid electric vehicle market

Following on from a teardown project in 2017, where a team of engineers at Höganäs AB stripped back three new vehicles to their component parts, the company recently repeated the exercise with a hybrid SUV from Chinese automaker BYD.

The four-wheel drive BYD Tang is built for China’s domestic market, and provided the team at Höganäs with the opportunity to establish a better understanding of the use of Powder Metallurgy in hybrid vehicles, as well as highlighting potential future applications. In this article, Anders Flodin, Application Development Manager at Höganäs AB, reports on the project.

Characterising powders for Cold Isostatic Pressing applications

An understanding of the characterisation of metal powders is essential for optimising production of high quality components during Cold Isostatic Pressing.

In this article, Freeman Technology’s Operations Director, Jamie Clayton and the company’s Technology Manager – Materials Engineering, Jason Dawes, present an overview of the main powder characterisation processes used in industry and makes the case for the company’s dynamic powder testing technology.

JPMA Awards 2019: Showcasing innovations in PM for high-volume applications

The winners of this year’s Japan Powder Metallurgy Association Awards highlighted the continual developments being made by Japan’s PM industry to further expand the use of PM technology.

The winners included innovations in component design and powder production, demonstrating the continued potential for new applications in the automotive sector, as well as other high-volume application areas.

Euro PM2019: Manipulating the sintered microstructures of hard materials

A technical session at the Euro PM2019 Congress, organised by the European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) and held in Maastricht, the Netherlands, October 13-16, 2019, examined a variety of means to manipulate the sintered microstructures of hard materials (cemented carbides and cermets). The session featured one of the congress’s five selected keynote papers, supported by three further papers on the subject.

In this report, Dr David Whittaker provides an overview of the four presentations and highlights the work undertaken.
