This publication traces the peculiarities of metal powder production for powder metallurgy. Of the variety of methods, particular attention is paid to those that are most widely used in practice – reduction and powdering methods. Metallurgical photo of iron powders obtained by different technological processes are presented, as well as tables with the basic technological properties of iron powders obtained by reduction and powdering.
