Nitriding Symposium 4, Las Vegas


Nitrex Metal, United Process Controls, along with sponsors The Monty and Global Heat Treat Network, held another great symposium this past November in Vegas, USA. NItriding Symposium 4 (NS4) continued the tradition of providing an open forum where researchers, industry and applied users can meet and share their practical and technical experience in the field of nitriding and nitrocarburizing. This year's event was co-chaired by Mr. Michel Korwin, President of Nitrex Metal, and Dr. Witold Liliental, Senior Staff Metallurgist at Bodycote NMT.

Results from the post-symposium survey indicated that 100% of the respondents were satisfied with the educational content and networking opportunities of NS4. Similarly, most of the ratings indicate that participants were satisfied with the venue, website, speakers, and overall organization of the event. A few illustrative comments include:
- "Thank you to Nitrex and its team for putting together this useful and educational conference."
- "The unique value of NS4 is that it’s an unbiased forum for heat treat professionals like myself to meet and exchange info."
- "Well organized event with a good mix of presentations."
- "The conference was good. For the next edition, I’d like to see more speakers from the industry."

In keeping with tradition, the Hephaestus Award for honoring outstanding leaders in the heat treating community was bestowed in-absentia to Mr. John Hubbard, past CEO of Bodycote Plc, for his distinguished contributions to the development of heat treating worldwide.
