Powder metallurgy is the science of fabricating components with metal powders as their starting material. Powder metallurgy processes differ from conventional metallurgy processes such as melting and pouring, casting, drawing, forming, cutting, machining, welding, extrusion, forging and other related processes. In conventional metallurgy, the metal or alloy is always in a continuous physical form and is made into various shapes and articles using the above-mentioned processes. In case of PM, these processes are replaced by new and easier methods such as blending, compacting and sintering. One of the major drawbacks of conventional metallurgy process is the phase rule, which dictates what ratios of specific elements can coexist in solid or liquid phase together in one continuum. This drawback is completely eliminated when the metal powders are handled through the powder metallurgy process. Powder metallurgy is sometimes referred to as the chip-less process, meaning there is zero waste of materials. This is due to the absence of machining operations compared to conventional metallurgical processes. Powder metallurgy (PM) is a cost-effective process for forming metal parts by heating compacted metal powders to just below their melting points. PM production methods can be used to fabricate numerous parts with complex shapes that meet demanding specifications. Unlike conventional machining, PM creates very little scrap or waste.

Most parts produced using the PM process weigh less than five pounds, while parts weighing as much as 35 pounds can be fabricated with conventional PM equipment. Many early parts produced by PM, such as bushings and bearings, were simple shapes, but today’s sophisticated PM processes can economically produce components with complex contours and multiple levels.

Despite their small size, PM-produced parts are strategically important to the automotive, aircraft, hardware, instrumentation, oil and gas well-drilling equipment, and off-road tractor industries. A typical automobile contains more than 40 pounds of PM parts. Parts such as aircraft engine turbines, power tools, surgical instruments, riding lawn mowers, etc. depend on the PM process for their formation and strength.

The Asia-Pacific powder metallurgy (PM) industry, which was affected by the 2008-2009 recession, most notably due to the steep decline in automotive production, recovered and surpassed pre-recession levels.
