Present Status of Powder Metallurgy in USA

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The economical situation of USA is very good, including automotive industries. A lot of P/M (powder metallurgy) companies have been supplying parts to automotive industries, so they are very busy now. Activities for securing QS.9000 & ISO9000 certification is very popular in USA. M&A (merger and acquisition) of P/M companies are very active between USA base companies and EU base companies. Development of new MIM technologies is very active, however the production of MIM parts is below the estimation of several years ago.
