Information, networking, problem-solving-ASM Heat Treat 2001 has it all. The ASM Heat Treat Society's 21st Conference and Exhibition is slated for Nov. 6-7 in Indianapolis, Ind., and is the event that brings together leading heat treating researchers with engineers, technical managers and experts.
Visitors can get fast solutions to thei r problems by participating in Fast Track-free "how-to" workshops and live demonstrations on the show floor.
Over 150 technical papers will be presented on topics including energy minimization and equipment design, induction process technologies, atmospheres, brazing technology, heat treatment and microstructural evolution. In addition, an international symposium on quenching and control of distortion is being offered in honor of Professors Bozidar Liscic and Hans M. Tensi.
A keynote session, "Materials and Processes for the New Millennium," features five speakers who will describe the future of the heat treating industry. Speakers will include Jim Williams, Ohio State University; Mark Smith, Sandia National Laboratories; Mac Louthan, Jr., Savannah River Technology Center; Gregory Olson, Questek Innovations; and J.E.
