Center for Heat Treating Excellence (CHTE)
In the Fall of 1999 the ASM Heat Treating Society and others formed the Center for Heat Treating Excellence (CHTE). The CHTE consortium is an alliance between the industrial sector and university researchers to collaboratively address short-term and long-term needs of the heat-treating industry.
Heat treating is a $20 billion-a-year industry. It is fragmented and R&D necessary for innovation is not carried out across all segments. CHTE provides a critical and important forum where various segments of the industry pool their resources and, through collaborative research, advance the industry by developing the knowledge base and curricula for education of its future leaders.
