ASM Advances Heat Treating of Light Alloys
February 10, 2009

Advances in the heat treating of aluminum, titanium and next-generation composites will be discussed during a two-day conference organized by the ASM Heat Treating Society. Held March 25th-26th at the Doubletree Hotel in Anaheim, California, the “Heat Treating of Light Alloys” program will cover new techniques in processing, microstructure development, resultant properties and performance.

The program will begin with “A Historical Perspective on Light Metals Heat Treatment” provided by Joe Benedyk of Light Metal Age. Technical presentations by heat treating experts will follow. The Wednesday morning program features “Care and Maintenance of Polymer Quenchants for Heat Treating Aluminum” by Scott Mackenzie, Houghton International; “Cycle Time Reduction in the Heat Treatment of Cast Aluminum Alloys by Prof. Richard Sisson, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, “Induction Heat Treating of Light Metals” by Rob Goldstein, Fluxtrol. The Wednesday afternoon program features “Vacuum Processing of Titanium for Aerospace Applications” by Bob Hill, Solar Atmospheres; “Advanced Induction Heat Treating Technologies for Light Metals” by Valery Rudnev, Inductoheat. The Thursday morning program will include “Heat Treating and Characteristics of Titanium 10-2-3” by Ben Irani, Bodycote, and “Salt Bath Heat Treating of Aluminum Aerospace Components” by Geoff Monti,
Bodycote. A one-day educational seminar on Heat Treating for the Non-Heat Treater will be presented by Scott Mackenzie on March 24th, immediately prior to the start of the Heat Treating of Light Alloys technical program.

Details on the event and complete registration information are available at ASM’s website. For more information about tabletop exhibits, contact Ms. Kelly Thomas, ASM International, at 440.338.1733 or email kelly.thomas@asminternational.org.
