GKN Powder Metallurgy has announced further steps in its course towards Industry 4.0 with a new dedicated digital area for Metal Additive Manufacturing (Metal AM).
GKN Powder Metallurgy has joined forces with EOS, the global technology leader in high-end additive manufacturing, to lead the way in business-to-business industrial 3D printing.
The British Ambassador of Germany, Sir Sebastian Wood, visited the GKN Sinter Metals site in Bonn, Germany, to learn more about innovations in metal AM and GKN's future projects.
Experts from the automotive and manufacturing technology industries came together at a workshop in November to learn more about the new possibilities of Metal Additive Manufacturing in series production.
Traverse gear rolling increases the dimensional precision and performance of conventionally produced Powder Metal gears through the controlled densification of critical surfaces.
Application for surface densified powder metal gears are found in Engines, Transmission and Fluid Technology products where the benefits of this process can be leveraged.
The availability of unique material systems is one of the key differentiators powder metallurgy has over other metal working technologies.
