IMTMA Training Centre

Online Training on Advanced Heat Treatment

Date : 3 to 4 November, 2020

Time : 1400 Hrs to 1700 Hrs


The demand for a superior product at a lower cost is an ever growing demand. Engineers and scientists in organizations constantly researching to achieve this objective. About 70-80 percent of the components of industrial products, be it automotive or Engineering are manufactured out of various types of steel due to its favourable cost to strength ratio. Steel properties can be changed to meet the design requirement by suitable heat treatment process. Therefore in-depth knowledge of different Industrial heat treating processes is essential to find solutions to the problems quickly and effectively. Several basic heat treatment processes are in use for centuries and also  many advanced heat treatment processes are developed and in practice in industries to enhance the properties.

Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organising an online training program on “Advanced heat treatment processes”.
