Application of Sinter-Hardenable Materials for Advanced Automotive Applications such as Gears, Cams, and Sprockets 2000-01-0999

Recent demands within the automotive industry have been for applications requiring high hardness, high hardenability, and increased mechanical performance. These often conflicting requirements necessitated the development of new materials that offer high as-sintered hardness and good static/dynamic mechanical properties without the added expense of a secondary heat treatment. Traditionally, sinter-hardening materials have offered acceptable hardness but at the expense of mechanical properties and sintered density. This paper will document a series of sinter hardening materials that offer good compressibility, high hardness and enhanced mechanical properties. The discussion will focus on utilization of these materials in automotive applications (within both the engine and transmission) such as gears, cams and sprockets that are currently produced by either the press, sinter, and heat treat process or by conventional machining of a casting or wrought material.
