Update to Powder Metallurgy property database

March 17, 2014

The online Global Powder Metallurgy Property Database (GPMD) was launched in 2004 as a joint project between the European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA), Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) and Japan Powder Metallurgy Association (JPMA).

Since its launch, the database has been refined and extended to include the non-ferrous Powder Metallurgy (PM)  and Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) sectors with coverage of nearly 4,000 lines of high quality data.

Thanks to continuous growth the site now has over 10,000 registered users from countries all over the world and from a wide range of industrial sectors. In the latest development launched last week additional information has been added covering strain controlled fatigue data for:

  • The pre-alloyed steel grade FL-05M1/FL-4405(0.85% Mo, 0.20% Mn, balance Fe) with a 0.5% elemental carbon addition, in both the as-sintered and quench and tempered conditions.
  • The “hybrid” material FLN2-4405, based on same pre-alloyed steel grade, but with elemental additions of both 0.5% carbon and 2% nickel, in the as-sintered condition.
  • The pre-alloyed steel grade FL-5305 (0.50% Mo, 0.20% Mn, 3.0% Cr, balance Fe) with a 0.5% elemental carbon addition, in the sinter-hardened and tempered condition

The data is displayed in a user-friendly format viewable in both tabular and graphic formats and it is hoped it will be of particular interest to design engineers in a range of industries.
