The SCANPAC MMS process gives fully dense components in the weight range 50 gram to 5 kg. The starting feedstock is agglomerated spherical prealloyed gas atomized high purity powder which is preformed by conventional pressing, CIP or HVC compacted to a green body which is HVC compacted to more than 95 % density and thereafter finally sintered or capsule free hipped to full density. The paper gives eample of carbon steel, stainless steel and nickel base components which are industrially produced. The production economy compared with forged corresponding components are discussed. Finally market potential for this new PM process which gives components with properties as good or better than wrought products is discussed.
