Lighter, Stronger, Faster: ASM Advances Heat Treating of Light Alloys

27.01.2009
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 25-26 at the Doubletree Hotel in Anaheim, Calif., the “Heat Treating of Light Alloys” program will cover new techniques in processing, microstructure development, resultant properties and performance.

“Our goal is to provide an opportunity to learn about the latest developments in heat treating, which has such a strong influence on reducing weight, improving performance and providing greater cost-effectiveness in engineered systems,” said organizer Roger Jones, Solar Atmospheres, Souderton, Pa.

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.

A roundtable discussion and networking reception will conclude the first day’s technical program. “We want our participants to take advantage of every opportunity to talk about the problems and opportunities that we as heat treaters confront every day,” Jones said.

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 24, 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 www.asminternational.org/events. For more information about tabletop exhibits, contact Ms. Kelly Thomas, ASM International, at 440.338.1733 or email Kelly.thomas@asminternational.org.

ASM Heat Treating Society is the premier society for heat treating professionals. Comprised of members from the captive, commercial, supplier, research, manufacturer and customer sectors. HTS serves as a central clearinghouse for heat-treating information that is distributed through conferences, seminars, books and electronic media. Visit www.asminternational.org/hts for details.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
