Warm flow compaction is a new, simple and economy process that can produce complex powder metallurgy parts. A special apparatus for measuring the lateral flow capability of the powder was designed and manufactured. It can be used to analyze the feasibility of forming complex cross-shaped parts. The preparation of the powder blend and effects of pressing speed, temperature and axial pressure on the lateral flow capability of a tungsten-base powder mix were investigated. Results showed that the lateral-pressure increased with increased pressing speed and increased applied axial-pressure. The lateral-pressure decreased as lateral-distance increased. Biggest lateral-pressure was obtained when the powder blend was pressed at around 96 °C, at which the binder start to melt. In this study cross-shaped powder metallurgy parts were successfully prepared by warm flow compaction.
