Processing and Property of Net-Shaped Fe-Based Nanoparticulate Material


Article Preview

This paper overviews our recent investigations on the processing of net-shaped Fe-based nanoparticulate materials and their related material properties such as mechanical and corrosion properties. The key-process for fabricating fully densified net-shaped nanopowder by pressureless sintering is an optimal control of agglomerate size of nanopowder. Enhanced mechanical property of powder injection molded Fe-Ni nanopowder could be explained by grain refinement and uniformity of microstructure.
