Advancements in Heat Treatment Processes

Date : 21 to 22 October, 2021

Time : 1330 Hrs to 1730 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, whether they are automotive or non-Automotive products are manufactured out of various types of steel due to its favourable cost to strength ratio. Steel properties can be changed to meet the manufacturing process standard to meet the design requirement by suitable heat treatment processes. Therefore in-depth knowledge of different Industrial heat treating processes is essential to find solutions to the problems quickly and effectively.

Simulation of heat treatment is primarily about the prediction of the material properties that can be achieved by heat treatment. Predictions of distortions caused by the heat treatment can also be of interest. Simulating
the process reduces the amount of experimentation required during process design and process optimization. Knowledge of Heat treatment simulation helps to optimize the process and reduce cost.

Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organising 2 day online programme on “Advancements in Heat Treatment Processes”

Special Offer: Participants will be provided FREE ACCESS to IMTMA E'learning course on "Heat Treatment"-Metallurgy and Processes(HTMP) towards continual learning and up skilling.Access will be valid from 21 Oct -04 Nov 2021.

This program will be conducted by Mr. Ganapathi K N and Mr. S.C. Balawat.

Mr. Ganapathi K N is presently working as Director Training at IMTMA, having 16 years of industrial and 16 years of academic experience. He is a mechanical engineer with post graduate in metal casting science and engineering. Prior to IMTMA, Ganapathi has worked at various capacity in manufacturing companies. He has thorough knowledge of Materials, Metallurgy, Metal casting and heat treatment processes. He has carried out many specialised programmes on metal casting technologies, Metallurgy and heat treatment for industries. He has also taught these topics to post graduate engineering students. At IMTMA his role is to develop and introduce new programmes for enhancing competitiveness of Industries.

Mr. S.C. Balawat, a Metallurgical Engineering graduate from Karnataka Regional College, Surathkal (Now it is NITK Surathkal). He is gold medalist. He has over 40 years of active Industrial Experience in Metallurgy and manufacturing. He has worked in Motor industries Co. Bangalore (now BOSCH) manufacturers of Fuel Injection Pumps and Sparking plugs for 10 years, and for 17 years in Automotive Axles Limited Mysore, manufacturers of Rear Axles for LCV and HCVs. In addition, he has worked for 13 years in John Fowler India Limited, Bangalore, a firm specializing in post-harvest Agricultural machinery and primary Tobacco processing machineries. Post retirement in 2012 he is consulting in Manufacturing and Metallurgy for Forging and Foundry industries. He has been associated with IMTMA as faculty for Design Institute in the subject of Heat treatment and metallurgy.
