Admixing pure elements to powder mixes can cause the formation of heterogeneous microstructures in sintered parts. For instance, nickel is renowned for forming nickel-rich areas (NRA) in powder metallurgy (PM) nickel steels due to its poor diffusivity in iron matrix (or lattice). The present work is aimed at characterizing the principal diffusion mechanisms of nickel and their influence on microstructures and properties of PM nickel steels. A new wavelength dispersive X-ray spectrometry (WDS) approach linking line scans and X-ray maps to concentration maps is proposed. Grain boundary and volume diffusion coefficients of admixed nickel have been determined in PM nickel steels using Suzuoka's equation. Results also show that nickel distributes itself in the iron matrix mainly by surface and grain boundary diffusion. © 2012 The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society and ASM International.

The effect of sintering temperature and mix composition on the static and dynamic properties of sinter-hardened steels was evaluated in relation to the level of retained austenite. Using a low-alloy steel-base powder, mixes were prepared with 2 w/o Cu and two levels of graphite to attain -0.7and 0.5 w/o carbon after sintering, with or without admixed 1 w/o Ni, followed by temperating. Transverse rupture (TR) strength, tensile properties, and plane bending fatigue strength were evaluated. The highest tensile properties are attained at a retained austenite: martensite ratio (γR:M) <0.15. Plane-bending fatigue strength is maximized at a (γR: M) ratio of 0.25 with attendant crack growth primarily through interparticle crack necks. Under cyclic loading, a microstructure consisting of high-carbon plate martensite, compared with low-carbon lath martensite, is preferred.

Although powder metallurgy is a cost attractive route to produce net shape complex parts, many PM applications require machining to meet tight tolerances or to accommodate design features that cannot be moulded during compaction. In this case, machining enhancers can be used to improve tool life, particularly for materials that harden partially or completely during sintering. However, machining enhancers generally have a detrimental effect not only on static properties but also on dynamic performance. A study has been carried out to evaluate the effect of manganese sulphide and hexagonal boron nitride on both static and dynamic properties of FC-0205, FC-0208, FD-0405 and FD-0408 materials. The sintering was carried out at 1120°C for 25 minutes in a 90% nitrogen and 10% hydrogen atmosphere followed by a tempering at 200°C for 60 minutes for the FD-0408 materials. The characterization of the materials comprised dimensional change, apparent hardness, tensile properties and bending fatigue strength at a load ratio of R=0.1. © 2010 Metal Powder Industries Federation.

High density PM parts can be produced to densities exceeding 7.5 g/cm 3 but generally require additional processing steps that negatively affect their costs. Many R&D projects are currently carried out on both the materials and compaction techniques to reach high density at an affordable cost. The objective of this paper is to review how the powder characteristics, the additives in the mix formulation (specifically lubricant and graphite) and the compaction parameters affect densification during compaction. Results showed that at compacting pressures below 620 MPa (45 tsi), powder compressibility is a key parameter to achieve high density, while above 690 MPa (50 tsi), the low density additives (lubricant and graphite) have the largest impact. New polymeric lubricants admixed in lower concentrations can be used to maximize green density but the most important variable is still the application of high compacting pressures. © 2010 Metal Powder Industries Federation.

Although most of the new PM applications require high density to withstand demanding loads, many parts are still produced in a density range of 6.0 to 6.6 g/cm3. For such applications, high green strength is a key factor to avoid green cracks during compaction and handling before sintering. These parts must also show good dimensional stability during sintering. A study has been carried out to evaluate the behaviour of various powder grades during sintering. F-0005 and FC-0205 mixes were prepared and pressed to a green density of 6.4 g/cm3. Sintered properties were evaluated and dimensional behaviour characterized by dilatometry. Also, compressibility and green strength were determined at 275, 480 and 690 MPa using a mix with 0.75% EBS wax. Results showed that with proper modification of particle morphology and particle size distribution, the dimensional change can be modified and the green strength improved.

A new approach in the method of depositing an external lubricant on the die walls of a powder metallurgy press has been developed which allows the compaction of parts from mixes with no or minimal lubricant content. By heating the die to moderate temperatures (70°C - 100°C) and using new composite lubricants, optimum thickness lubricant layers can be deposited allowing the compaction-ejection of difficult parts. Trials were carried out on an industrial press with measurement of the compaction and ejection forces for different parts and powder mixes. In particular, an iron-resin powder mix with no internal lubricant was pressed into rectangular shapes of different thicknesses and punch profiles. Mixes for high density applications were also pressed into rectangular shapes using die wall lubrication (DWL). The results are compared to those obtained with regular mixes containing 0.75% wax and special mixes intended for high density applications (low internal lubricant) pressed without the DWL.

Diffusion-alloyed powders such as FD-0405 (0.5Mo-4Ni-1.5Cu) and FD-0205 (0.5Mo-1.75Ni-1.5Cu) are widely used in the industry for the production of high performance parts. However, the rising price of alloying elements such as Mo, Ni and Cu between 2004 and 2008, coupled with the potential regulation issue with Ni and the constant requirement to produce high performance parts at the lowest possible cost, have led to the introduction of cost effective alloyed powder alternatives including powders with Cr, Mn and Si, pre-alloyed or added as ferro-alloys. Nevertheless, these types of alloys are not so easy to process, requiring higher sintering temperature and very well controlled sintering conditions with very low dew point. Their compressibility is also not so good. Another approach is to develop optimized alloys based on pre-alloyed Mo powders combined with lower levels of Cu and Ni. Such alloys show excellent compressibility and remain easy to sinter under normal sintering conditions with various atmospheres. In addition, efficient bonding technique such as diffusion-bonded and binder-treatment processes allow achieving excellent Ni bonding. The results of studies carried out over the last years and aiming for the development of such optimized leaner powders using cost effective processing technologies are presented.

Steel powders containing Mo, Ni and Cu are widely used in the industry. Indeed, they offer excellent compressibility and mechanical properties due to their unique heterogeneous microstructure. Such alloys are also very easy to process under a wide range of sintering conditions. However, Mo-Ni-Cu powders are sensitive to the price of alloying elements, which has reached a peak few years ago. Other issues linked to the addition of Ni powder (health and product availability) make the development of free or low Ni levels grade of great interest. On the other hand, Ni is quite beneficial and offers some advantages in term of manufacturing and properties and may be impossible to eliminate totally. The objective of this paper is to evaluate the impact of addition of Ni and Cu on the mechanical properties of steel powder mixes containing pre-alloyed Mo. In particular, mixes with low addition of Ni were studied. Design of experiment (DOE) was used in order to evaluate the impact of each element and to determine optimum conditions for static and dynamic properties.

Sinterhardening is a cost effective PM process which is particularly attractive for parts that are difficult to quench due to their size and shape. In this process, martensite transformation takes place during the cooling phase of the sintering cycle and hence, reduces thermal stresses generally associated with quenching due to the slower cooling rate and leads to tighter dimensional change control. Many sinterhardening powder grades have been developed to cover a wide range of applications. Depending on their alloy and mix compositions, these grades offer a wide range of compressibility and response to hardening. On the other hand, it is not possible to achieve maximum values of apparent hardness, tensile strength and fatigue strength simultaneously. The objective of this paper is to review the effect of alloy composition and mix formulation on apparent hardness, tensile and fatigue strength of sinterhardened materials and recommend mix formulations and processing conditions to meet specific requirements.
