TAT Technologies LLC, located in St. Marys, Pennsylvania, USA, has announced April dates for its popular Powder Metallurgy sintering courses. The courses are intended to offer a balanced combination of lectures and hands-on experiments, enabling students to simulate actual production under different conditions using a real sintering furnace and real green Powder Metallurgy parts.

The classes are limited in size to better facilitate interaction between student and lecturer, with best practices taught that benefit new employees, sintering supervisors, quality engineers, plant managers, and industry veterans.

Course 1: Preparation for Better Sintering

April 16-19, 2024

Covering all aspects of preparation of parts and the pre-heat section of the sintering furnace, this course aims to give attendees a clear understanding of what is needed to ensure that parts will be properly and thoroughly delubed, oxide reduced, and graphite diffused by the time they reach about 1066ºC and before proceeding to the high heat section of the furnace where sintering itself takes place. This will make sintering in the high heat section provide better dimensional control with less variations in sintered properties.

Course 2: Sintering for Increased Throughput

April 22-25, 2024

Building off the knowledge and skills gained in the Preparation for Better Sintering course, this second course looks to teach students the role of temperature, atmosphere composition/flow, and time at temperature (belt speed), and how they can be optimised to increase throughput from a conveyor belt furnace without adversely affecting the properties of sintered parts.

This knowledge will be gained through ten specially designed experiments using ferrous parts of different compositions, densities, and sizes. Students will be guided to achieve quality sintered parts with minimal property variation at higher production rates when they return to their plants. Attending the first course is a prerequisite for taking this course.
