Revised Powder Forged Steel Parts standard now available
January 12, 2017
The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) has issued a revised and expanded version of the MPIF Standard 35-PF Powder Forged Steel Parts. The 2017 edition of the standard has been developed for the powder forging (PF) commercial parts manufacturing industry and provides the design and materials engineer with the latest engineering property data and information available.
Property data are included for four PF material systems, namely Carbon Steel, Copper Steel, Low Alloy PF-42XX and PF-46XX Steels in the normalized and quenched & tempered conditions. Chemical composition and minimum density requirements are cited.
Data tables (Inch-Pound and SI Units) include typical property values for Ultimate Strength, Yield Strength, Elongation, Reduction of Area, Rockwell Hardness, Impact Energy, Compressive Yield Strength and Mean Fatigue Limit.
This standard is said to provide the design and materials engineer with the latest engineering property data and information available in order to specify materials made by the powder forging process.
