Powder Metallurgy – A Game-Changer in Manufacturing Industry

The Powder Metallurgy technique has been gaining increasing popularity in the manufacturing industry in recent years. It is a well-established process of producing metallic components using powders. The process involves compacting the powders into a die, followed by heating them at a high temperature to fuse them together. The result is a solid, strong and precise finished product, that is widely used in a range of applications spanning several industries.
