ENERGY CONSUMPTION IN THE MANUFACTURE OF PRECISION METAL PARTS FROM IRON POWDER
The energy requirements for making precision metal parts from iron powder, including the manufacture of the powder itself, were calculated using a representative processing model and energy data available in the literature. These energy requirements were found to compare favorably with available estimates for the steel making process. The efficiency of the P/M process and potential areas for decrease in energy consumption are also highlighted.
