It gives me pleasure to bring readers news of heat-treatment activities in Europe.
We’ll start with the International Federation of Heat Treatment and Surface Engineering (IFHTSE) and its forthcoming events in Europe and the U.S. Although over by the time you read this, the conference for Heat Treatment and Surface Engineering for Tribological Performance deserves mention. It was held in the Estonian city of Tallinn in early November at the Tallinn University of Technology. The focus of the conference was surface engineering/modification by thermochemical methods and the tribology of wear.
