BÖHLER 3rd Generation Powder Metallurgy - Your Advantage

The 3rd generation powder metallurgy in BÖHLER ensures finer powder during atomization and the result is finer and more homogeneous carbide distribution.





Improved Cleanliness

The new tandish technology enables the 3rd generation powder metallurgy in BÖHLER to produce powder which is comparatively cleaner with minimum amount of non-metallic inclusion.  The little of the remaining non-metallic inclusions are much lower and finer than the technologies of the previous generations.





The cleaner and finer powder coupled with extremely minute carbide and more homogeneous carbide distribution lead to very high toughness as well as very high fatigue strength, resulting in longer tool life for tools made from the 3rd generation powder metallurgy process.

Extremely high toughness with shock resistance; punches and dies for heavy cutting heavy guage materials, woodworking tools, shank tools for pneumatic equipment, coining tools, tablet punches, hot work tools for low thermal stresses.
BÖHLER K490 - Closes the gap in material demands between high wear resistance and good toughness at a very high level! Your benefit: longer tool life! Further benefits lie in the very good machinability and in the flexibility of its heat treatment.
Extremely high toughness PM steel with characteristics of HSS, very high abrasive and adhesive wear resistance and compressive strength, high retention of hardness, suitable for nitriding and PVD coating; for tooling which requires a high edge stability and therefore a high capacity for plastic yield and a high fatigue strength, e.g. cutting and blanking, fine cutting, cold forming, cold massive forming, powder compaction, warm forging at lower temperature.
