Cost and Energy Conservation with Powder Metallurgy 750409

The application of the P/M and P/F methods in the production of automotive parts was investigated and compared to the conventional methods of casting and forging, with special attention paid to the areas of cost and energy conservation.In relatively light parts weighing 200-500 grams, the use of P/M and P/F with pure iron powder resulted in a significant savings in both cost and energy consumption. In the heavier parts, however, this cost reduction was not realized because of the high cost for materials.
