BÖHLER MC90 Intermet is a unique cutting material with a special alloy composition developed by BÖHLER Edelstahl, which cannot be assigned to any comparable material group on the market. The extremely high hot wear resistance allows a 50% higher cutting speed. Combined with a service life that is at least 35% longer than that of conventional high-speed steels produced using powder metallurgy, this material increases productivity by up to 70%.

Bernhard Winter started his career 2001 in the sales department for High Speed Steels at voestalpine BÖHLER Edelstahl. He is leading this department since October 2015 and since 1st of April 2020 he is also the responsible sales manager for all BÖHLER grades sold in the Automotive Industry as components. He was part of the initial R&D project that led to the market launch of MC90 INTERMET and therefore understands the advantages of this specific cutting material. MC90 INTERMET is a unique solution that provides properties that where never possible for a PM High Speed Steel. What makes this grade so innovative is that only the combination of special steel and coating results in the outstanding performance of MC90 INTERMET.
Patrick Hödl started his career 2008 in the sales department at voestalpine BÖHLER Edelstahl being responsible for special steels for power generation and engineering applications. After taking care of Oil & Gas products such as Nickel base alloys and Austenitic steels from 2014 onwards, he took over the product management for High Speed Steels in 2020 where our PM produced grades including MC90 INTERMET are one of his main priorities. His focus segments are Gear cutting, reaming, broaching and High Speed Steels in Cold Work applications.
Barbara Starzer completed her studies in materials science at the Montanuniversity Leoben, followed by a doctorate. After 5 years at Pankl Racing Systems in R&D she started her career 2006 as application engineer for tool steel & high speed steel at voestalpine BÖHLER Edelstahl. From 2010 she is working in the area
Technology Tooling, until 2015 as responsible technician for high speed steel, with the main focus on application engineering in cutting applications. Since 2015 her focus is on application engineering of high speed steel (incl. MC90 INTERMET) and tool steel for cutting, non tooling and automotive applications.
