This article provides an overview of the compaction of metal powder in a rigid die and reviews the compaction characteristics of stainless steel powders, including green density, compressibility, green strength, apparent density, flow rate, and sintered density. It describes the influence of compaction characteristics of stainless steel powders in tool materials selection, lubrication, annealing, double pressing/double sintering, and warm compaction.
