Karaktärisering av hårdmetallpulvrets råvaror och dess påverkan på pulvrets flödesegenskaper

This thesis has been done at the powder department (GH) at AB Sandvik Coromant in Gimo. With a rheometer measurements has been made on raw materials and powder blends. The focus of this report has been to find correlations between raw material powders and press data, comparisons have also been made between raw materials and powder blends.
The rheometer can show information of how a powder act in flow conditions, together with air and with pressure. Analyses has been done comparing the rheometer data with press parameters (for example: rejected orders, weight variations and the compaction pressure) with the goal to find correlations between the powders flow properties and the powders compaction in production.
The measurements and analyses have been showing that the powder flow properties depends on the powders composition and that properties like flow rate, aeration and permeability varies between powder blends and batches of the same powder sort. It seems to exist a correlation between the pressure force and the flow rate of a raw material. This flow rate seems to belong together with the flow rate of the powder blend. No correlations were found between the rheometer measurements and press rejections, weight variations and hall flow values.
The statistical analyses that has been used in this report consist of a few number of measured values and for the analyses to be statistic correct it is necessary to have a larger sample in the analyses.
