Abstract


These days significant waste metal scrap is generated during the machining operations such as grinding, milling, shaping, forging etc. This waste/scrap is big challenge for the industry due to environmental litigation, such as in grinding industry the scarp contain organic and inorganic compounds. Thus, for reprocessing of this grinding waste will be difficult and it also crate environmental problems.  Current work focus to reuse and produce a value added product from the grinding waste. The Powder Injection Molding (PIM) approach used to create the value added product from the grinding waste. As the PIM product will be inferior in terms of mechanical properties, Carbon Nanotubes are added to improve the mechanical properties. To test the microscopic analysis of the PIM products are tested with SEM and it is observed that the PIM products are porous in nature. The hardness testing suggests that the PIM product will have higher harness number with less porosity.
