Heat Treatment and Surface Engineering –
New Trends and Developments

Munich, 12 - 15 May 2014

Cordial Invitation and a Warm Welcome

to the European Conference on Heat Treatment 2014 and the 21st International Federation for Heat Treatment and Surface Engineering (IFHTSE) congress.

Modern industrial operations face relentless environmental and economic pressures: efficient use and management of resources and energy, emissions reduction, process reliability. These challenges can only be addressed by constantly improving methods and process technology. In the automotive field, for example, improved heat treatment processes increase the strength and toughness properties of metallic structural components, and modern surface engineering technologies reduce the effects of abrasion and attrition.

The European series of conferences organised by heat treatment associations in Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland and the Czech Republic, and the IFHTSE Congress series are dedicated to knowledge transfer between research and practice and the exchange of experience among scientists and engineers. AWT, the host of this year`s IFHTSE Congress and European Conference, has designed an extensive and evaluated program presenting current trends in R&D and in industry.

Leading experts from all over the world will meet in the attractive surroundings of the beautiful Bavarian city of Munich to present and discuss recent developments and to find the latest scientific and technological information.

This combined event thus offers you the opportunity to be part of a network of international expertise in heat treatment and surface engineering.

We look forward to seeing you in Munich!
