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.

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.
To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...
Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
