Abstract:

The research is designed to examine the three ferrous powder metal preform forging methods currently under consideration by the U.S. Army. The examination will answer the following question which method is best for a particular complexity of parts. One of the major conclusions drawn from all three methods, which is of particular interest to the engineer, is that the reduction in cost of forging using the powder metal preforms was about 50 percent less than conventional methods of forging the same parts. Cost reduction was achieved by elimination of much of the final finished machining necessary in fabrication of the part.
