New 2010 editions of Standard Test Methods for Metal Powders and Powder Metallurgy Products, and Standard 35, Materials Standards for PM Self-Lubricating Stainless steel Bearings have been issued by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF).
The 130-page standard on test methods contains 39 individual standards on terminology and recommended methods for testing metal powders, PM parts, metal injection moulded (MIM) parts, metallic filters, and PM equipment. The 28-page self-lubricating bearings standard has a new material section on diffusion-alloyed iron-bronze bearings, new information on oil impregnation efficiency, revised information for bronze ball bearings and data table modifications.
The new edition also includes a new standard: Sample of miniature bearing Preparation for the Determination of the Total Carbon Content of PM Materials (excluding cemented carbides), and revisions to 10 standards.
Both editions cross reference comparable ASTM and ISO standards.
