Dear Colleagues, Metal powder net-shape and near net-shape technologies are increasingly interesting, as they allow producing parts as close as possible to their final shape, eliminating or reducing secondary operations, and consequently reducing scrap, costs, time to market, and environmental impact. Among them, Press and Sinter, Metal Injection Moulding, and, recently, Metal Additive...
