This article begins with a discussion on general powder metallurgy design considerations that assist in the selection of the appropriate processing method. It reviews powder processing techniques, conventional press-and-sinter methods, and full-density processes to understand the design restrictions of each powder processing method. The article provides comparison of powder processing methods based on their similarities, differences, advantages, and disadvantages. It concludes with a discussion on design issues for the components of powder processing technologies.
