    Abstract

    A POWDER METALLURGY part is conventionally made by compacting a lubricated metal powder in a die to the desired shape followed by sintering in a protective atmosphere. Simple and complex parts with densities typically ranging between 80 and 90 % of theoretical and having the finished dimensions are produced at high production rates. The P/M process uses raw materials and energy efficiently and, hence, is cost effective.
