Powder metallurgy is a concept which covers a wide range of possibilities in which materials or components can be made from metal powders. It is also used to design unique materials which is impossible to get from melting or forming in other ways. Powder metallurgy processes can avoid, or reduce, the dependency to use metal removal processes, thereby drastically reducing yield losses in manufacture and often resulting in lower costs.
