Powder Metallurgical

The uncompromised answer to the highest material requirements, ever-increasing demands being made of new materials require improved properties. The answers is high performance powder metallurgical steels with a homogeneous carbide structure for the hardest applications in the tooling industry.

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

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.
