SECO/WARWICK’s Furnaces and Atmospheres for Today’s Technology Seminar will be held Sept. 8-10. Heat treating equipment configurations and processes will be explained with best practice information to provide information for purchasing, operating, and maintaining equipment. The program covers the vital furnace design and plant management options that enable attendees to evaluate equipment options for a wide variety of heat treat furnaces and atmospheres.
SECO/WARWICK is pleased to host Dan Herring, one of the best-recognized experts in the industry. He will be the featured guest speaker as he discusses the future of heat treating in North America and how the business will evolve in the future. He will include his insights on heat treating expertise, answering the three basic questions—Who has it? Where is it? Where will it be? Herring will talk about tools and techniques for meeting new quality standards, training, and education, along with meeting the challenge of keeping heat treating affordable.
The company strives to keep the seminar content non-commercial and as objective as possible. By taking this approach it creates an environment for a constructive exchange of knowledge and ideas that benefit everyone in attendance. A Monday evening hospitality event, lunches, and a dinner meeting with Dan Herring are all included in the tuition cost, providing good opportunities to meet with staff and colleagues.
Since 1974 SECO/WARWICK has organized two seminars in the U.S. each year to present improvements in technologies, design, and efficiency for heat processing, as well as the fundamental principles involved in heat transfer, heating systems, and protective atmospheres. Experienced engineers—whose technical background includes formal education, factory training, and on-site installation experience—give all of the seminar presentations.
The seminar is designed to benefit equipment operators, heat processing supervisors, plant engineers, metallurgists, and manufacturing personnel. The content has been developed to assist equipment owners improve operating efficiencies and implement methods to minimize waste and conserve energy through a review of the fundamental principles involved in heat transfer, heating systems, protective atmospheres, and process control.
The seminar will be held at the Holiday Inn Express in Meadville, Pennsylvania. The cost is $400 per person, which includes seminar materials, luncheons, one scheduled dinner meeting, and refreshment breaks. Each seminar program includes a tour of the manufacturing facility.
