“BHT-Satellite Symposium: c-BN- and diamond based hard materials for metal and rock cutting” workshop on 4 & 5 June 2019 in Freiberg, Germany.

This stakeholder workshop is part of a bigger conference, the ‘70. BHT – FREIBERGER UNIVERSITÄTSFORUM’, which takes place on the following two days (5.-7. June 2019).

The Freiberg High-Pressure Research Centre (FHP) kindly invites delegates from industry, academia and politics to this satellite symposium of the annual BHT conference at TU Bergakademie Freiberg.

The one-day symposium is focused on recent results and developments in high-pressure synthesis and industrial production of novel (super)hard materials based on c-BN and diamond, which can replace WC/Co-materials in metal and rock cutting applications, in order to reduce the use of the critical raw materials tungsten and cobalt. It will address topics on precursor-derived synthesis and sintering of (nano-scaled) cBN- and diamond-materials, but also on related new hard materials systems. The symposium will include talks and poster presentations covering topics from basic research to industrial applications including a focus on sustainability issues and economic implications.

The format of the meeting is planned to be based on 16 oral presentations (20 min plus 5 min discussion) and a poster session.
