The process for making a bonded bimetallic sintered metal articles is very old. In 1885 Canda [1] received a patent disclosing a process for sintering a metal bearing lining to a tinned bearing shell. In the early 1920Ts several people became active in producing sintered metal bearings and similar mechanical articles. By the late 1920’s the use of sintered metal bearings had been adopted in the automotive and allied industries. From there, they progressed into the refrigeration and electric motor industries.
