FAILURE ANALYSIS | CORROSION ANALYSIS | ROOT CAUSE FAILURE ANALYSIS

As the standards of our industry rise due to increasing globalization and competition, there is an ever growing need for consistency and reliability. Breakdown of any unit, system or equipment is an avoidable and costly occurrence and must be prevented or minimized. Analysis of such failures becomes a resourceful and affordable tool in addressing such unwanted occurrences.

Introduction | Structure of Metals and Alloys | Crystalline materials

Crystalline Materials:
A crystalline material is one in which the atoms are situated in a repeating (or) periodic array over large atomic distances.
Non Crystalline Materials:
Materials that do not crystallize are called non-crystalline (or) Amorphous materials

Sintering in Powder Metallurgy | Green Compact | Diffusing

What is sintering in powder metallurgy process?

The operation of heating the green compact at high temperature in a controlled atmosphere (Reducing atmosphere which protects oxidation of metal powders). The Sintering increases the bond between the particles and therefore strengthens a powder metal compact. Sintering temperature and time of sintering depends on the type of powders and the strength required in a final product. The Sintering temperatures usually 0.6 to 0.8 times the melting point of powders.
