The MPIF’s Powder Metallurgy Machinability Seminar will take place in Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel, State College, Pennsylvania, USA, April 4-5, 2017. The seminar is designed to offer an in-depth knowledge and understanding of both the fundamental and practical aspects of machining PM parts.
Over two-full days attendees will gain a fundamental knowledge of machining and tooling. Presentations will discuss the use of additives, how to improve machinability, how to select the right cutting fluid and economics of tool choice. How coatings can reduce tool wear and the impact PM material morphology has on machining will be discussed as well as numerous case studies.
The seminar will be chaired by Carl Blais of Laval University and Denis Christopherson of Federal-Mogul Sintered Products.
