Components that would have not been even possible until a few years ago can now be made to high standards utilizing a wide range of metal powders. Almost 70 years ago, metallurgy parts manufacturing and metal powder manufacturing came into modern day prominence. Nowadays, various types of metal powder and powdered parts manufacturing processes have evolved and are still being practiced. Metal powder can be produced using various processes, such as liquid atomization, direct reduction, centrifugal atomization and gas atomization. The atomization process is one of the most widely utilized methods for production of metal powders using stainless steel, tool steel, iron, brass, aluminium, titanium and other alloys, etc.

Metal powders are utilized for various applications, including additive manufacturing (prototyping and 3d printing), cold sprays, brazing, metal injection moulding, plasma and thermal sprays, diamond catalysts, electromagnetic shielding, etc.
