Objective of this paper is, improvement of quality of Mn-Zn soft ferrites manufactured by powder metallurgy and overall output yield of it's plant. The efforts have been made to synthesize the crucial parameters which are responsible for better material preparation, pressing and sintering. By adopting these recommendations, the rejection rate is substantially reduced and the variation in magnetic properties is less. Data, which give more uniformity in bigger lots and are responsible for more uniform magnetic properties, have been discussed. Simple, quality-control instruments and their measurement methods which can be incorporated for stage inspection have been explained. The additives for better ferrite powder preparation, granules making and to obtain better magnetic have been discussed. Improved pressing, sintering, porosity, density and permeability relationship have been drawn. A sintering method to obtain better sintered density and high permeability in ferrites is also explained.

Keywords: Mn Zn ferrites manufacturing, powder metallurgy, process conditions, sintering.
