Abstract
In North America, heat treating adds about $15 billion per year in value to metal goods by imparting specific properties that are required if parts are to function successfully. Heat treating is an energy-intensive industry, requiring about 500 trillion BTUs (~ 0.5 trillion ft3 of natural gas) per year, which accounts for about 20% of the total cost ofthe business. Considering this huge demand on energy resources and its significant impact on the environment, in the year 1996, members of the heat treating industry represented by the ASM Heat Treating Society and the Metal Treating Institute (MTI) met and discussed the future of the heat treating industry in Nor...
