27th HTS C&E a Winner in Indy HTPRO The 27th ASM Heat Treating Society Conference and Exposition was a major success in Indianapolis in September, attracting more than 2000 attendees from the heat treating industry and featuring a sold out Expo with more than 180 exhibiting companies. The attendance reflected a 16% increase from 2011 and 28% increase from 2009. More than 180 companies displayed their wares at the Expo. A highlight of Heat Treat 2013 was the "Master Series" sessions, special programming that focused on heat treating pioneers whose research transformed heat treating technology. Attendees were treated to lectures by current experts in the field on the contributions and impact of past heat treating "giants" Walter Jominy, Marcus Grossmann, and Edwin Northrup. The event also offered a full technical program covering a broad scope of heat treating technology, networking opportunities, and a firsthand look at equipment, supplies, and services from exhibitors. HTS and the American Gear Manufacturers Association will co-locate again in October 2015 at the 28th ASM Heat Treating Society Conference and Exposi- HTS Members Honored John D.
