On the Use of Elemental Powders to Process Fe-50Co Alloys by Powder Injection Molding


Article Preview

Aiming to obtain components with higher density, this work evaluated the technical and economical viabilities to replace the pre-alloyed Fe49Co2V by an elemental powder alloy of iron and cobalt (Fe-50Co). Using an elemental alloy could increase the density of the final material due to the driving force created by the chemical gradient between the powders. The results showed that is possible to achieve higher densities in an elemental powder Fe-50Co alloy sinterized at the same temperature and in shorter times than the Fe49Co2V alloy. The analysis of economical viability showed that the replacement of the alloys have advantages as the pre-alloyed powder price is higher than the elemental.
