Last year the organizing Association for Heat Treatment and Materials Technology (AWT) recorded a growth of 10 % of the congress and a growth of as much as 30 % of the affiliated exhibition. With approximately 200 exhibiting companies this year's trade fair is even growing further.
The main topics of the congress will include:
- Influences on heat treatment arising from process chain,
- Characteristics and application of quenching media,
- Non-destructive testing of components,
- Recent innovations in the field of materials and heat treatment engineering, manufacturing and process technology.
Further highlights of the congress programme are the plenary presentation “Shaken not stirred! James Bond in the focus of physics” by Dr. Metin Tolan, professor at the University of Dortmund, and the bestowal of the “Adolf Martens Medal” to Eric J. Mittemeijer, as well as the granting of the “Paul Riebensahm Award” to Anne Jung.
