The 2015 edition of ASM Handbook, Volume 7: Powder Metallurgy includes a new section on metal injection molding and focuses on conventional press and sinter powder metallurgy (PM). The revised volume is organized in two parts. The first part (following an introductory division on history and material standards) covers the basic principles and techniques that are common to all PM materials. These divisions include powder manufacture, powder characterization, compaction, sintering, and full density processing. The second part of the handbook covers detailed information on PM technology as it applies to individual metal/alloy families. Within each material-specific division, the information presented follows the typical production steps: powder manufacture, compaction, sintering, secondary processing, as well as properties and applications. Major emphasis is placed on the material and processes as they are currently used in industry.

"Loaded with references and practical information on powder metal and metal-injection-molding processes, this book will certainly serve as the standard reference book for the powder metal community, and for those who design or specify components made using powder metallurgy."

-John J. Shea, IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine
