Sintering is the process of compacting, welding together, and forming a solid mass of material from small particles without melting it. In the case of metal sintering, metal powders (powder metallurgy) are used. This process requires the use of protective atmospheres and is typically carried out at high temperatures. Sintering is also the last stage in metal injection moulding (MIM) processing.
