Definitions for "Powder Metallurgy"
The practice, description, study and terminology of processing metal powders, including the fabrication, characterization, and conversion of these powders into useful engineering components. The processing sequence involves the application of basic laws of heat, work, and deformation to the powder. Processing changes the shape, properties, and structure of a powder into a final product.
The technology of producing metals in powder form and of using this powder in the production of useful objects, compaction and sintering.
The use of metal powders under heat and pressure to produce shaped objects in a cavity like in clutch release bearing sleeves.
