Network with Leaders in the Heat Treat Industry

CHTE members network with the best and brightest in the heat treat industry and the field of thermal engineering. Members include commercial heat treaters, captive heat treaters, suppliers and manufacturers all working together to address issues they face in the heat treat and thermal processing industry. Recent research focuses on carburizing, nitriding, residual stress, tempering, quenching and additive manufacturing.

Members also benefit from tapping into the breadth of knowledge of the faculty and research staff at WPI.
