The machinability of powder metallurgy steels is lower compared with wrought steel due to a larger number of material variables. Therefore, the machining of powder metallurgy materials is a permanent subject of investigations and practice. The aim of the book is to present knowledge concerning the machinability of PM steels and show areas for improvement. Because tool wear and failure is the result of the interaction of the workpiece, tool and cutting conditions, these areas are described and analyzed in the book for sintered iron, carbon steels, alloyed, stainless and powder forged steels.
