FABRICATED P/M PARTS are evaluated and tested at several stages during the manufacturing for part acceptance and process control. This can include various types of tests, such as:

• Evaluation of dimensional changes

• Density measurements

• Hardness testing

• Mechanical testing

• Crack detection

• Metallography

This article briefly reviews the first five items, while metallography is discussed in the article "Metallography of Powder Metallurgy Materials" in this Volume.
