The intense effort by automotive companies to improve gas mileage and meet mandated CAFÉ Standards is aided by enabling vehicular mass reduction technologies. One area of such research is the application of appropriate powder metallurgy (PM) materials such as the alloys of aluminum, titanium, and magnesium. Each material option presents certain challenges that need to […]
Aluminum powder metal was recently featured in the January/February issue of Lightweighting World magazine. The aluminum powder metal market continues to grow as automotive engineers take greater advantage of its capabilities in achieving weight reduction. MPP is recognized as the technology leader in aluminum powder metal and is ready to work with you to provide […]
ABSTRACT High nickel steels offer the opportunity to produce powder metallurgy components with excellent high strength and ductility combinations. These alloys are a sinter-hardenable class of materials that do not require conventional heat treatment processes to develop these unique properties. The alloys must be sintered at high temperatures in order to obtain the value of […]
ABSTRACT Wear resistance is often important in structural applications that use light weight PM aluminum alloys. Several aluminum PM alloys were evaluated for wear resistance using the ASTM G65 test method. This consists of dry sand that is dropped into the interface between the test sample and a rotating rubber wheel. Test results indicate that […]
Shuhai Huo, Bill Heath, and Chaman Lall The application of powder metallurgy (PM) aluminum structural parts is at its early growing stage, despite of some automotive applications. The market potential for PM aluminum, however, is large. Growth is expected from the market expansion of the existing applications and new applications, including the replacements of […]
