Abstract

Abstract Many low cost agricultural and industrial components must be resistant to abrasive wear and at the same time they may have to fracture in a brittle mode instaad of deforming plastically. Frequently a part has a complex geometry which requires forming to near net or net shape. John Howell of Deere & Co, Moline, Illinois, USA, and Alan Lawley of Drexel University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, compare the current technique used to make such parts with a PM injection moulding process. They discuss the applicability of the proposed PM process design to this type of component with respect to wear and corrosion resistance, bend strength, fracture response, economics and environmental considerations.
