Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Machining are often applied to powder metallurgical parts to meet the requirements of tight tolerance and multifunctionality, and improvement of machinability is required in sintered steels to reduce cutting costs. In the Cleanmix™ lineup of segregation-free mixed powders, which is produced by an original manufacturing process pursuing greater convenience for customers, JFE Steel has commercialized the Cleanmix JFM™ (JFE Free Machining) series to meet the demand for excellent machinability in order to reduce the cost of manufacturing powder metallurgical parts made of iron-based sintered steels. The JFM series has been widely applied to automotive parts and is expected to support further expansion of the application of sintered parts and reduction of manufacturing costs in the future.
