Abstract: The present study aims at investigating the effect of process characteristics during fabrication and machining of powder metallurgy (PM) Aluminium cylindrical components. The application of the machining process as an alternate manufacturing process to fabricate the PM Aluminium components for industrial use with desired shape and size is explored. The PM Aluminium cylindrical components were fabricated by compacting the Aluminium metal powder within the compaction dies under various values of compaction load, sintering temperature and sintering time. These PM components were then machined under different standard cutting velocity and tangential cutting velocity, surface roughness data were analyzed. After the investigation it was concluded that, higher values of compaction load, sintering time and sintering temperature leads to higher values of relative density and relative hardness of the sintered Aluminum component. Again from machining results it can be stated that, higher values of fabricating parameters have a higher significance on performance parameters.
