  • Formation Of Non-Axial Features In Compacted Powder Metal Components

    view source
  • US Patent:
    7829015, Nov 9, 2010
  • Filed:
    May 31, 2007
  • Appl. No.:
    11/755993
  • Inventors:
    Sean T. Kuplen - Ithaca NY,
    Matthew W. Crump - Cortland NY,
    John D. Sarick - Cortland NY,
  • Assignee:
    BorgWarner Inc. - Auburn Hills MI
  • International Classification:
    B22F 3/035
  • US Classification:
    419 66, 419 5, 75770, 425 78
  • Abstract:
    An apparatus and process for forming compacted powder metal parts having a non-axial undercut feature. An undercut die is located between the upper and the lower dies and contains a plurality of shaped punches aligned in a circular pattern. Each of the shaped punches contains a working edge. The working edges converge to form an inner circumference which creates the undercut feature. The edges of the shaped punches slide with respect to each other to change the size of the inner circumference from a maximum diameter position to a minimum diameter position. During compaction, the rotation of the shaped punches alters the inner circumference to its minimum diameter position thereby forming an undercut in the final compacted part. The retraction of the shaped punches to its maximum diameter position enables the unimpeded removal of the part from the tool set.

  • US Patent:
    2006013, Jun 22, 2006
  • Filed:
    Dec 20, 2004
  • Appl. No.:
    11/017013
  • Inventors:
    Edwin Hicklen - Dryden NY,
    Sean Kuplen - Ithaca NY,
    Kai Xu - Ithaca NY,
    Ryan Sun - Ithaca NY,
  • International Classification:
    B22F 3/03
  • US Classification:
    264109000, 425078000
  • Abstract:
    A device to compact parts out of powder material including a top die and a bottom die movable with respect to each other from an open position to a closed position, at least one punch associated with each of said dies for relative movement between the die and associated punch, said bottom die and bottom punch movable to positions defining a cavity substantially within said top die for receiving powder therein, said bottom punch and said top and bottom dies being relatively movable to draw powder down into a portion of said cavity adjacent the bottom die that is formed due to said relative movement, said top and bottom punches being movable toward each other to compact the powder and form the part, said top and bottom dies being separable to eject the part. Relative movement of the top and bottom die and bottom punch may take place during filling of the cavity with powder. Alternatively, relative movement may take place after the completion of filling the cavity adjacent the top die with sufficient powder to fill the part.

  • US Patent:
    2007004, Mar 1, 2007
  • Filed:
    Aug 25, 2005
  • Appl. No.:
    11/211220
  • Inventors:
    Ryan Sun - Cortland NY,
    Kai Xu - Cortland NY,
    Sean Kuplen - Cortland NY,

  • Assignee:
    BorgWarner Inc. - Auburn Hills MI
  • International Classification:
    B22F 3/24
  • US Classification:
    419028000, 419029000, 419055000
  • Abstract:
    A method of producing parts from powdered metal having a first step of providing a powder, which is compressed at a pressure of 25 to 65 tsi to provide a green compact. The compact is then sintered at 2000° F. to 2400° F. for 20 to 60 minutes and cooled. After the compact has been cooled, the density of the compact is increased to greater than 7.4 g/cc. The compact is austenitized in an atmosphere of gas containing propane and a carbon potential of 0.8%. In one embodiment, the gas also contains ammonia. The compact is heated in the atmosphere at a temperature of 1600° F. for 40 minutes. Immediately following the heating, the compact is quenched in oil a temperature between 120° F. and 150° F. for 10 to 15 minutes. Lastly the compact is tempered at a temperature between 300° F. and 1000° F. for 30 to 90 minutes.
