TO 80 Powder metallurgy

Companies with an interest in powder metallurgy materials collaborate within Jernkontoret’s technical area 80, Powder metallurgy.

Hot isostatic pressing of steel powder (HIP). 

Committee meetings are arranged 2-3 times per year at Jernkontoret or at member companies. To properly prepare the meetings of the Technical Area, the committee has appointed an advisory panel (TOB 80), which meets about four times a year.

Purpose and general orientation

Companies interested in powder metallurgy materials collaborate within this technical area. There are member companies that cover the whole chain i.e. from powder production via pressing (compaction) to the users of components manufactured through powder metallurgy.

Technical area 80 lays great emphasis on active collaboration between the material manufacturers and material users; this is to facilitate product development and product design and construction.

How does one become a member of the technical area?

The committee of the technical area decides on acceptance of new members. You are welcome to contact the technical area’s Research Manager if you are interested in participating or if you have questions about activities, membership fees etc.
