Newly Developed P/M Materials to Replace Malleable and Ductile Cast Irons 2001-01-0404
Malleable and ductile cast irons are used extensively in automotive applications such as clutches, gears, carriers, shafts, bearings, cam, racers, hubs, etc. Recently developed P/M materials can be processed cost efficiently to replace malleable and ductile iron castings. An UTS in excess of 1240 MPa and a YS in excess of 825 MPa can be achieved with one of these new materials. These tensile properties can be coupled with elongations over 2% and impact energies over 25 Joules.
This presentation will cover processing routes for these new materials and will identify parts that may benefit from this new technological advancement.
