BÖHLER Technical Seminar on Powder Metallurgy – Series 16

The Aquamarine meeting room in Saujana Hotel in Subang was filled up by 9:00am on the morning of 29 Sep., 2015 with our invited guests to listen to the technical presentation by Ing. Heinz Makovec.  The unwelcome haze that had shrouded much of the Peninsular had not deterred the turnout.  Mr. Makovec is the Product Manager of Powder Metallurgical Material from BÖHLER Edelstahl GmbH & Co KG in Kapfenberg, Austria.  The technical seminar was the 16th Series in our programme, and this time, the topics were centred on powder metallurgical tool steels and high speed steels.  

It has always been our philosophy to share with our associates and partners technical information and innovations in relation to the latest developments in the fields of special steels and other related alloys.

Mr. Makovec spoke at length on the making and the technical aspects of powder metallurgical steels, the BÖHLER MICROCLEAN® steels which are produced with the 3rd generation PM technology.  Mr. Makovec stressed that PM steels are normally used as problem solvers and when high levels of productivity and efficiency are required; he shared with the participants numerous real case studies to emphasize the points.  Mr. Makovec also presented on the heat treatment of tool steels and high speed steels, and raised some finer points on the effects of heat treatment on the performance of tools.

Mr. Thay Peng Kee, the Managing Director of Bohlasia Steels Sdn Bhd, in his concluding remarks, pointed out that chemical analysis alone cannot determine the quality of a material; it is the process in making the material which ultimately decide its quality, as in the case of a steel produced using conventional method and made via powder metallurgical route.  Mr. Thay hoped that the participants would benefit from knowledge shared in the seminar; knowledge gained in our learning belongs us, and it is the one thing that no one is able to take it away from us.
