The Performance and Cost Advantages of Automotive Powertrain Components Produced from Leading Edge P/M Technology 930488
Replacement of full density iron alloy components with parts manufactured from leading edge P/M technology continues to characterize new automotive product development. This presentation will identify these powertrain applications as well as define the significant cost savings associated with their implementation.
Physical and mechanical properties of parts manufactured from processes such as ultra high density, hot forming and sinter hardening will be compared with each other as well as the materials they are replacing in the applications presented. Recommendations to maximize the automotive industry's involvement and benefit will also be discussed.
