Using metal-containing photoresist allows to fabricate complex 3D geometries with the resolution that is an order of magnitude finer than that of the state-of-the-art metal AM methods. Another key aspect of any metal AM process is the throughput. High scanning speeds and intrinsic advantage of parallelizing light delivery using lithographic methods suggest that the presented AM process lends itself to streamlined and efficient manufacturing of metal nano-architectures. This nanoscale metal AM method is not limited to nickel: other organometallics can be used to derive UV-curable metal-based photoresists using similar chemical synthesis.

Master sintering curves of two different alumina powder compacts. The sintering behaviour can be predicted, and sintering activation energy can be calculated with the help of few dilatometric measurements.

The possibility to predict sintering behaviour with the help of Master Sintering Curve was verified. Helium trapping in aluminum and sintered aluminum powders. A substantial reduction in the blistering erosion rate in SAP was observed from that in pure annealed aluminum. In order to determine whether the observed reduction in blistering is due to enhanced helium trapping or due to helium released, the implanted helium profiles in annealed aluminum and in SAP have been studied by Rutherford backscattering.

The results show that more helium is trapped in SAP than in aluminum for identical irradiation conditions. The observed reduction in erosion from helium blistering in SAP is more likely due to the dispersion of trapped helium at the large Al-Al 2 O 3 interfaces and at the large grain boundaries in SAP than to helium release.

From the viewpoints of material properties and process versatility, powder metallurgy has been widely applied in industries. Generally, stainless steel powders are prepared by atomization processes and powder characteristics, compaction ability, and sinterability are quite different according to the powder preparation process.

In the present study, a nanoparticle dispersed micro-sphere powder is synthesized by pulse wire explosion of L stainless steel wire in order to facilitate compaction ability and sintering ability. Nanoparticles which are deposited on the surface of micro- powder are advantageous for a rigid die compaction while spherical micro- powder is not to be compacted.

Additionally, double step sintering behavior is observed for the powder in the dilatometry of cylindrical compact body. Earlier shrinkage peak comes from the sintering of nanoparticle and later one results from the micro- powder sintering. Microstructure as well as phase composition of the sintered body is investigated. Full Text Available Multi-walled carbon nanotubes CNTs as nano-reinforcements were introduced to facilitate the laser sintering process and enhance the thermal and mechanical properties of polymeric composites.

The composite powders exhibited improved heat conduction and heat absorption compared with virgin polymer powders , and the stable sintering range of composite powders was extended and found to be favourable for the sintering process. The microstructures of sintered composites revealed that the CNTs remained at the powder boundaries and formed network architectures, which instantaneously induced the significant enhancements in tensile strength, elongation at break and toughness without sacrificing tensile modulus.

Also, The shrinkages and the oxidation resistance of the sintered porous body was increased with increase of sintering temperature. The milled powders were cold compacted at , , and MPa pressures. The compressibility behavior of the powders was evaluated using the Heckel, Panelli-Ambrosio and Ge models. The microstructural investigations of the sintered samples by Scanning Electron Microscopy SEM confirmed the presence of porosities at the interface of copper-tungsten carbide phases. To investigate the physical properties of titanium alloy fabricated with vacuum- sintered powder metallurgy.

The role of the native oxide shell on the microwave sintering of copper metal powder compacts. However, the concept behind microwave heating of metal powders has not been fully understood till now, as it is well known that bulk metals reflect microwaves.

The progress of microwave sintering of copper metal powder compacts was investigated via combining both in-situ electrical resistivity and dilatometry measurements that give important information about microstructural changes with respect to the inter-particle electrical contacts during sintering. The sintering behavior of copper metal powders was depending on the type of the gas used, particle size, the initial green density, the soaking sintering time and the thin oxide layer on the particles surfaces.

Mechanical properties were investigated by tensile tests with steel rings. Density and permeability were determined by standard techniques for porous samples. Gravity sintered stainless steel with NiB addition had more superior mechanical and physico-chemical properties compared to stainless steel obtained by standard powder metallurgy procedures - pressing and sintering.

Specific to this technology is the sintering of the metal powder prior to the melting process. The sintering process has disadvantages for post-processing. The post-processing of parts produced by SEBM typically involves the removal of semi- sintered powder through the use of a powder blasting system. Furthermore, the sintering of large areas before melting decreases productivity. Current investigations are aimed at improving the sintering process in order to achieve better productivity, geometric accuracy, and resolution.

A SHORT NOTE ON MANUFACTURING PROCESS OF METAL POWDERS

Grain growth and microstructural development on sintered samples were studied. Nd-Fe-B sintered magnets fabrication by using atomized powders. Nd-Fe-B sintered magnets are required to achieve high coercivity for improvement of their thermal stability. Dy is added to increase coercivity, however, this element decrease magnetization and energy products. Therefore, Dy-lean Nd-Fe-B sintered magnets with high coercivity are strongly demanded. To increase coercivity, it is necessary that microstructure of sintered magnets is consisted of both fine main phase particles and homogeneously distributed Nd-rich phases around the main phase.

To meet those requirements, Nd-Fe-B atomized powders were applied to the fabrication process of sintered magnets. Comparing with the case of using strip casting SC alloys, jet-milled powders from atomized powders show homogeneous distribution of Nd-rich phase. This difference in coercivity was due to initial oxygen concentration of starting materials.

Consequently, Nd-rich phases became oxides with high melting points, and did not melt and spread during sintering and annealing.

Mechanical properties resulting from microhardness and nanoindentation tests were also compared between three-method processed samples. It was found that the microwave-assisted hot-pressed sample exhibited higher hardness and elastic modulus in comparison with microwave- sintered and conventional hot-pressed samples.

    The improvement in the mechanical properties can be ascribed to lower porosity of microwave-assisted hot-pressed sample. Effect of process parameters on surface oxides on chromium-alloyed steel powder during sintering. The use of chromium in the PM steel industry today puts high demands on the choice and control of the atmosphere during the sintering process due to its high affinity to oxygen.

    Particular attention is required in order to control the surface chemistry of the powder which in turn is the key factor for the successful sintering and production of PM parts. Different atmosphere compositions, heating rates and green densities were employed while performing sintering trials on water atomized steel powder pre-alloyed with 3 wt.

Enhanced oxide reduction was observed in samples processed in hydrogen-containing atmospheres independent of the actual content in the range of 3—10 vol. A simple model for the enclosure and growth of oxide inclusions during the sinter -neck development is proposed.
