The ASM Heat Treating Society and the International Federation of Heat Treatment and Surface Engineering have partnered to create an exciting event focused on Thermal Processing, Heat Treating and Surface Engineering. This event will bring together the international experts from around the globe to present the latest innovations and research in Thermal Processing and Surface Engineering.
Technological advancement is the result of a complex chain of actions, starting with an idea; and a design to match the functional demands: there are often multiple stages in the manufacturing process, as well as essential quality assurance methods for the component and system.
All steps in the process have their own special significance. Optimum outcomes and cost-effectiveness depend heavily on the way in which they are orchestrated and managed as an integrated sequence. At given times and in given circumstances the relative importance of each step may be viewed differently, but the heat treatment and surface engineering processes in the manufacturing stage are always critical.
