The process of pressing metal powder to net shape with subsequent sintering is very important for the automotive industry and similar industries with production of metal components in large quantities. The development of products and tools for the pressing of the products is a very time consuming and costly process. It is of great importance for the industry to be able to predict the result of the pressing operation with respect to the powder flow and final density distribution. With this knowledge the time and cost for product development, tool manufacturing and tool testing can be significantly reduced. In this work a set of methods used for analyses of the pressing process are presented. The methods used are based on an explicit finite element formulation with arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian formulation. The material model used is a cap-plasticity model. The contact constraint are imposed with a method based on explicit integration of the contact interface equations in order to determine the contact forces. The contact algorithm includes a non-linear friction model with parameters based on experimental observations. An analysis of a pressed component is presented and compared with experimental results.
