Since the 1920s, modern powder metallurgy has been used to produce a wide range of structural powder metallurgy components, self-lubricating bearings, and cutting tools. The conventional method involves the production of metal powders and the manufacture of useful objects from such powders by die compaction and sintering. Powder injection molding permits the production of stronger, more uniform, and more complex powder metallurgy parts. A detailed discussion of powder metallurgy materials and products is given in this book. Worked examples, exercises, questions, and problems are included in each chapter.

"... clearly and precisely written ... very welcome and useful addition to the library of any institute or company working in powder metallurgy."
- Herbert Danninger, TU Vienna
"... a 'must' read for students, researchers, engineers, and manufacturers involved in the processing of particulate materials. ... there is the need for someone to take on the responsibility of providing an up-to-date textbook that covers both the science and technology of, in this case, PM. This book does a compelling job in addressing this need."
- Animesh Bose, FAPMI, President, Materials Processing, Inc., in International Journal of Powder Metallurgy, Volume 47, Issue 3, 2011
