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: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
