The MPIF’s Powder Metallurgy Machinability Seminar is taking place next week in DuBois, Pennsylvania, USA, 24-25 August. Organisers of the event state that there is still time to register for the seminar which has been designed to provide an in-depth knowledge and understanding of both the fundamental and practical aspects of machining PM parts.

Delegates will learn about machinability from a metallurgical point of view, while at the same time obtaining the practical information that will help them understand how to improve operation for higher quality parts, reduced costs, increased productivity and greater profits.

The programme includes the following presentations:

An Overview of Machining PM Materials—“Read the Process”

Denis Christopherson, PMT, Manager, Research and Development, Federal-Mogul Sintered Products

Machining Aids Used in PM

Carl Blais, Professor, Laval University

Machinability of PM Steels: Material Property or Process Response?
