Molybdenum Rod Production Process Steps 

Production Process Steps Description
1. Powder Production Production of molybdenum powder through reduction or atomization processes.
2. Blending and Compaction Mixing molybdenum powder with binders and additives, followed by high-pressure compaction.
3. Pre-Sintering Pre-sintering the green compact in a controlled atmosphere or vacuum to remove binders and form a preform.
4. Sintering High-temperature sintering to bond powder particles and achieve a dense and solid structure.
5. Machining and Finishing Machining and shaping the sintered preform into the desired dimensions, surface finish, and tolerances.
6. Optional Additional Processing Additional processes like heat treatment, forging, rolling, or drawing for further refinement.
7. Inspection and Quality Control Conducting inspections and quality control measures to ensure adherence to specifications.
8. Surface Treatment Optional surface treatments such as polishing, grinding, or chemical cleaning for improved surface finish.
9. Final Inspection and Packaging Final inspection of the finished molybdenum bars or rods, followed by careful packaging.
10. Distribution and Supply Distributing and supplying the molybdenum bars or rods to customers for various applications.
