Including the 4th International Conference on Heat Treatment
and Surface Engineering in Automotive Applications

  • June 5-7, 2018
  • Spartanburg, South Carolina
  • Spartanburg Marriott




Final Program!

Thermal processing is critical for the safe and efficient operation of transportation (Aircraft, Rail and Automotive), as well as agricultural equipment.  Heat treatment is designed to increase fatigue, wear or tensile properties to satisfy a material need.  Constraints of fuel efficiency, cost and customer demand, are driving increased performance.  At the same time, global demands are driving reductions in cost.
