Practical Application of Drilling of Compacts
The machining of green compacts can lead to manufacturing cost reductions through longer tool life, equipment downsizing, decreased processing times etc. Cost benefits can be gained in particular with materials that are hard to cut, such as sinter hardening materials. We have succeeded in changing product processes for sintered parts with drilled holes, by optimizing processing conditions and tools for improvements in cut surface finish and dimensional accuracy.
