Due to the continual improvements of powder metallurgy techniques, it is possible for sintered materials to compete the wrought materials even in some of the most demanding applications. However, strength of sintered materials was inadequacy, because they have a lot of pores. This paper describes a study on the effect of rolling on the contact fatigue strength of sintered ferrous alloy compacts. The effects of rolling were evaluated by measuring the hardness and porosity distributions at the vicinity of the surfaces of rolled compacts. The effects of the amount of rolling on the contact fatigue strength, and the contact fatigue damage mechanisms were also investigated. Porosity at the vicinity of the surfaces of rolled compacts was decreased with increasing the amount of radial feed, from which the contact fatigue strength of rolled compacts was improved.
