Microwave sintering is proving to be a viable method of producing metallic parts. It has been found that metals in powder form absorb microwaves at room temperature and are heated very effectively and rapidly. This technology is now being used to sinter various powder metal components, and useful products are being produced ranging from small cylinders, rods, gears and automotive components in 30-90 min.
