Knowledge about machining strategies and technology parameters for turning sinter hardenable PM parts in the green state

The economic production of PM parts requires a specific machining technology for the green compacts including clamping systems as well as specific cutting parameters and tool materials. Technologies for conventional iron based materials like steel are not useful to machine green compacts. Therefore, IWF is going to provide guidelines for machining green compacts. The support of potential manufacturers is planned by different ways like publishing articles, hosting workshops and conferences especially for SMEs as well as taking part in fairs etc.

In particular, it is planned to publish results of the project in one or more of the following journals:
- International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology,
- Journal of Material Processing and Manufacturing,
- Journal of manufacturing Science and Engineering Transaction of the ASME,
- CIRP Annals Manufacturing Technology,
- Industrial Diamond Review,
- WGP Annals Production Engineering.

Furthermore, the results are going to be transferred to the technology centre ultrahard cutting materials at IWF. Here the results are going to be disseminated by marketing measures such as press information or participation in fairs.
