Magnetic Properties Obtained for Fe-50Co Alloy Produced by MIM with Elemental Powders
In order to obtain specific magnetic properties, it is of paramount importance to increase the alloy density of components fabricated by powder metallurgy. An alternative to increase the density of alloys such as Fe-49Co-2V would be the use of elemental Fe and Co instead of the prealloyed powder. Trying to give some insight on the industrial application of this strategy, this paper investigates the replacement of more conventional pre-alloyed Fe-49Co-2V powders with elemental Fe and Co. A previous analysis shows that it is possible to achieve higher densities using elemental Fe and Co powders sintered at the same temperature than Fe-49Co-2V. It is also shown that this leads to a noticeable improvement in some important magnetic properties such as permeability and magnetic induction.
