Full Density Processes can be used as a post processing technique (cast parts, MIM parts, additively manufactured parts) or as a fabrication process (raw components and semi-finished products achieved through powder metallurgy (PM) and/or diffusion welding (DW)). The regain of interest for powder metallurgy (additive manufacturing, large near net shape parts), the increasing demand for complex components (compact reactors & heat exchangers, components for energy) as well as the recent progresses in HIP vessel technology (in situ quenching) and hybrid heating in SPS are in favour of an expansion of such technologies in industry.
The course will bring understanding of the major difficulties during the implementation of sintering powders in processes under pressure, via Fundamentals and Practice sessions, including the modelling approach. It will be possible to identify the adapted technology (HP, HIP, SPS…) to consolidate and sinter the metallic powders. The knowledge of the choices and limitations of each technique will be essential to produce net-shape or near-net-shape parts. Moreover, it will be useful to select “custom powders” to produce materials with controlled microstructure. Possibilities offered to other PM technologies (MIM, AM…) to perform post-treatments and assemblies by diffusion welding will be presented. Finally, several cases studies will be analysed for which specific characterization tools will be presented.
A prerequisite will be some knowledge of materials science and metallurgy and notions of physical metallurgy.
