Troy, Michigan. This two-day event will be held at the Michigan State University, Management Education Center and will include round trip transportation for an evening visit to ALD Thermal Treatment in nearby Port Huron, Michigan to tour their 100,000+ square foot facility. The operation features more than 35 vacuum carburizing chambers and nine, 20 bar quenching chambers for nitrogen and/or helium. These modules are spread across six totally automated ModulTherm systems. The Technical Symposium will cover topics including; The Mathematical Model of LPC, Comparative Analysis of Carbon Sources, LPC in the Aircraft Industry, High Temperature LPC, Gas Quench Design, Vacuum Carburizing in the Commercial Heat Treating Arena, Materials Developed Specifically for Vacuum Carburizing, and much more. All of the technical papers are developed and presented by industry experts who are routinely involved with the practice of Low Pressure Vacuum Carburizing (LPC), and the speakers will be available for question-and-answer as well as open discussion during several networking opportunities.
