The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) reports that the 2022 Edition of Standard Test Methods for Metal Powders and Powder Metallurgy Products is now available to purchase.

This new volume contains forty-eight standards covering terminology and recommended methods of testing for metal powders, Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) parts, metallic filters, Powder Metallurgy equipment and metal Additive Manufacturing.

The most current versions of these standards, which are used in the production of both metal powder and Powder Metallurgy products, are required by Quality Assurance programmes in order to maintain full compliance.

The 2022 edition includes the following three new standards:

  • MPIF Standard 73 Preparing and evaluating tension test specimens of materials produced from metal powders by Binder Jetting (BJT), Material Jetting (MJT), Material Extrusion (MEX) or similar metal Additive Manufacturing technologies
  • MPIF Standard 74 Preparing and evaluating tension test specimens of materials produced from metal powders by Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) and Electron Beam (PBF-EB), Directed Energy Deposition (DED), and Cold Spray or similar hybrid metal Additive Manufacturing technologies
  • MPIF Standard 75 Determination of flow rate of metal powders using the Carney Flowmeter Funnel

Additionally, an updated version of A Collection of Powder Characterization Standards for Metal Additive Manufacturing is now available which contains twelve existing MPIF Standard Test Methods that can be applied for the characterisation of powders used in metal Additive Manufacturing processes.
