Filling induced density variations in metal powder
2002 (English)In: Powder Metallurgy, ISSN 0032-5899, Vol. 45, no 2, 146-153 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Filling induced density variations is a problem that has long been overlooked by powder metallurgy scientists. In this paper,densityvariations are addressed, both why they occur and what problems they may cause. A test method, including a test rig, is presented that is able to link several different factors to resulting powder densities. The relations are analysed and several density affecting mechanisms are suggested. These mechanisms could be used either to minimise density differences within parts or to control density by directing powder to critical areas.
