The Metal Powder Industries Federation has announced that the 2016 edition of MPIF Standard 35, Materials Standards for PM Structural Parts, has been released. The Standard provides the design and materials engineer with the latest engineering property data and information available in order to specify materials for structural parts made using the PM process.
Revised and expanded, this new edition was developed by the Powder Metallurgy commercial parts manufacturing industry. Each section of the Standard is clearly distinguished by easy to read data tables and explanatory information for each material listed. Detailed notes and definitions, along with data cited in both Inch–Pound and SI units, help to make the standard more user friendly.
The updated publication does not apply to materials for PM self-lubricating bearings, Powder Forged (PF) or Metal Injection Moulded (MIM) products which are covered in separate editions of MPIF Standard 35. The next edition of MPIF Standard 35 Materials Standards for Metal Injection Molded Parts is due to be published shortly.
