Hoeganaes Corporation will present two technical papers at the annual Powder Metallurgy Technical Conference hosted by the Powder Metallurgy Association of the Republic of China (PMAROC), August 15-16, 2014, Taiwan. The conference, established in 1982, attracts major PM parts producers from China and Taiwan.


Papers will be presented by Peter Sokolowski,

Senior Development Engineer, Hoeganaes

The papers will be presented by Peter Sokolowski, Senior Development Engineer for Hoeganaes.  “New PM technologies, especially AncorTech products, help us expand into new markets with new applications. Presenting at the PMAROC Conference helps our customers understand the value of these new technologies,” stated Sokolowski.

Both papers highlight products from Hoeganaes’ AncorTech line of materials. These advanced materials have been developed to produce higher density parts and greater production efficiencies, states Hoeganaes. Additional benefits of these powders include higher part-to-part consistency and better dimensional control. 

The Effect of Bonding Method on the Properties of Low Alloy PM Steels

This paper discusses ANCORBOND vs other alloying methods for PM steels. To reduce segregation, dusting, and overall inhomogeneity of PM mixes, the use of various bonding techniques has become increasingly common.  This work will investigate the effect of bonding method on low alloy PM grade steels.  Properties, including hardenability, powder flow, and static mechanical properties, were compared between premixes made using polymer-based binders and premixes of the same composition made using a diffusion alloying method.

Production of High Density PM Automotive Components Utilizing Advanced Warm Die Compaction Technology

A key initiative in achieving higher part densities is the advances in lubricants and premixing technology. AncorMax 225 enables reductions in the amount of lubricant required to as little as 0.25% by weight of the premix and higher green densities up to approximately 7.5 g/cm³.
