Materials Solutions for Converting Cast Iron Applications to Powder Metal 2002-01-0670

In the last several years, powder metallurgy (P/M) materials have been developed to rival the properties of cast iron and screw machined grades utilized in both automotive and non-automotive applications. These materials offer the P/M industry a momentous opportunity to dramatically increase its market by replacing some of the cast iron volume utilized today. While the inherent net shape capabilities of P/M and the potential cost savings of conversion to P/M offer customers distinct advantages, previous materials have not offered property combinations comparable to many cast iron grades. This work will explore the common grades of cast iron and propose P/M materials as possible replacements for each.
