Bone Up on Powder- Metallurgy PartsMarch 1, 2010
The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF), Princeton, NJ, has published a pair of publications on powder-metallurgy (PM) specifications and applications. The PM Automotive Parts Catalog lists more than 750 individual parts in engines, transmissions/transfer cases and body/chassis assemblies representing more than 300 applications in North American, European and Asian light vehicles. And, MPIF has published the 2009 edition of its Standard 35, Materials Standards for PM Structural Parts.
Aimed at design and materials engineers as well as purchasing agents, the standard offers technical specifications on the industry-approved materials used to make PM parts, including new sinter-hardened steels and the first high-temperature-sintered hybrid low-alloy steel in the as-sintered and heattreated condition.
