Another paper from Linde highlights improvements


The production process for powdered metal parts can be greatly enhanced by precisely controlling the chemical carbon potential of the sintering atmosphere.

This is the focus of a paper to be presented by Linde engineers at PowderMet 2012 sponsored by the 2012 International Conference on Powder Metallurgy and Particulate Materials, to be held from June 10th to 13th at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.

The paper, entitled, Improved Quality by Carbon Potential Control in Metal Injection Molding Sinter Furnace Atmospheres, will be presented by Tony Palermo, Metallurgy Program Manager for Linde in North America, and Akin Malas, Head of Heat Treatment Industry Segment, also from Linde.

The paper describes a means to control the chemical carbon potential of the sintering atmosphere in order to produce higher quality product while, in effect, lowering the cost of production, enhancing customer satisfaction, and expanding the current and future market penetration of parts produced by metal injection molding and powder injection molding.
