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.

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.
According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
