Metal Powders Processing and Manufacturing

Metal Powders Processes The industries of Metal Powders manufacturing and Powder Metallurgy parts manufacturing came into modern day prominence about 70 years ago. Since then, several types of both metal powder and powdered parts manufacturing processes have been developed and are still practiced. The major processes used are described below. direct reduction (sponge iron), gas atomisation, liquid atomisation and centrifugal atomisation are all processes in use today. Click here for the app note Direct Reduction Purified iron oxide ore, combined with a carbon source like coke, is heated to high temperatures usually in a rotary kiln. The product is sponge ...

Webinar: Advantages of the Frequency Power Spectrum Method

Please join us for a free webinar on June 22 at 17:00 CEST! If you're using dynamic light scattering (DLS) for the measurement of your nano-particles, you may be familiar with the photon correlation spectroscopy (PCS) method. Although PCS is a widely used DLS method of measurement, there is a superior method. Microtrac's proprietary approach to DLS, the frequency power spectrum method (FPS), overcomes the limitations of PCS. Heterodyne FPS gathers data in higher resolution than PCS. Having the detector set to 180° allows to measure in higher concentrations, and to even go on-line. The Microtrac FPS method effectively allows ... Read More
