Manufacturer of Metal Powders
Aluminium is the most common material used by manufacturers of metal powders. It is used mainly in the aerospace sector as a high quality thermal insulator due to its superior thermal conductivity and ductility. It is also an active manufacturer of metalated compounds like aluminium oxide and polyimide.
The metal powder of brazing is made by combining aluminium brazing with oxygen or nitrogen. In the brazing process, the brazed particles are first collected on the carbon blank, which is a solid carbon block having several layers of carbon granules. Then the particles are dropped into the chamber of the brazing equipment where molten metal is produced. These metal powders are then transferred to the mandrels of the brazing equipment which are circular and shaped like a dish. This process of transferring the brazed particles to the mandrels of the brazing equipment causes the carbon dust to form during the brazing process.
Another leading manufacturer of metal powders is Dewalt. The company produces a wide range of powders for different applications including forging, alloying, jewelry etc. The company has its own technology developed in order to manufacture the metal powders with the required properties. They use the latest methods and equipments to produce the metal powders. One of the methods they use is gas brazing, which is the most commonly used method of brazing in Powder Metallurgy. They are also using automatic mixers and blending systems in order to increase their production rates.
