Seminar: Vacuum Hardening, Quenching Technologies and Distortion Engineering in Heat Treatment

Date: 17 May 2012 - 17 May 2012

Venue: SIMTech Auditorium

Seminar: Vacuum Hardening, Quenching Technologies and Distortion Engineering in Heat Treatment
Discussion: Heat Treatment Knowledge Upgrading +Vacuum Heat Treatment Collaborative Industry Project

The Singapore industry needs heat treatment knowledge and practice improvement to better meet the requirements of aerospace, oil and gas, tool and die, and medical technology sectors. Demands on the heat treatments in terms of capability and quality for treatment of components in a cost-effective way with controlled quality and distortion make the advanced heat treatment techniques attractive. Knowledge upgrading for Singapore heat treatment practicing companies is essential and vacuum heat treatment gas quenching technology as an advanced environmentally friendly technology will help companies achieve new levels of knowledge and practice. The seminar presents some of the recent developments in through and surface vacuum hardening by Seco-Warwick Furnace Company and educational talks on quenching technologies and distortion engineering in heat treatment.
