The metallic microcomponents were fabricated by pressureless sintering of nano-sized pure Fe and 17-4 PH stainless steel nanopowders. The compacting and sintering behaviors of nanosized Fe powders have been evaluated and compared with those of conventional micron powders. The microstructure evolution and dimensional change during sintering were evaluated in detail.
