Compaction Experiment on the Newly Designed Warm High Velocity Compaction Equipment
In order to develop high density powder metallurgy forming technology, a new concept combining high velocity compaction and warm compaction called warm high velocity compaction (WHVC) was presented. A new warm high velocity compaction forming equipment which adopts gravitational potential energy instead of hydraulic cylinder as hammer driver was designed. By means of the newly developed equipment, a preliminary study on warm high velocity compaction was performed. 316L stainless powder compacts with green density of 7.47 g/cm3 were obtained; the density is much higher than those prepared by conventional high velocity compaction. These results demonstrate that the newly designed equipment can basically meet the demand of warm high velocity compaction and the new forming method is superior to the conventional high velocity compaction. In addition, Densification mechanism of WHVC was also discussed.
