Ferrous based materials manufactured by powder metallurgy (P/M) method are widely used in industry. These materials are very important because they do not require machining, have self-lubricated properties as journal bearing material, find applications in medical industry. In this study, powder metal parts were manufactured from ferrous based FeCu-Graphite composites by P/M method. Wear and mechanical test samples were manufactured and boronizing and boronizing + shot peening was applied to samples. Wear properties of these parts were investigated by wearing at 17 N load and 50 rpm on pin-on-disc wear test rig under dry conditions. Moreover, mechanical properties of powder parts were investigated in detail. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
