Characterising the physical and structural properties of metal powders for use in near net shape manufacturing processes is important for assessing their suitability for a particular process route or end use application.
Key characteristics include particle size distribution, particle shape, surface condition and microstructure, which impacts powder properties such as packing, flowability, compressibility and sintering behaviour.
By better understanding the relationship between particle characteristics, bulk powder properties and process factors in relation to final product performance, it should be possible to develop a more robust and optimal set of design and manufacturing rules to give the required part consistency and quality.
This webinar takes place on 13 December from 10:30-11:30 (GMT-5:00. Speaker Cathryn Langley will teach those working within powder metallurgy that ensuring consistent part manufacture requires a deep understanding of the relationship between feedstock properties and process performance.
This webinar will help you learn more about the impact of particle morphology, structure and composition on your manufacturing processes by considering a case study on metal powders for cold isostatic pressing processes.
