European Nitriding Summit 2014  (October 8-9th) 

About the Idea
Europe is an important and dynamic force in heat treatment, contributing new technologies, materials, ideas, processes, and energy saving and environmental standards. Fueled by its market size and growth, Europe will continue to be a key place for the heat treatment industry to seek more innovations, as well as more efficacious and efficient methods in heat treating.

Still, the long term success of the European market depends on the creation of a pan-European platform that supports regular meetings on developments and trends from the continent but also from the world.


Organizers and Partners
In the pursuit of a common platform, the Global Heat Treatment Network has initiated and organized the European Summit, one of few long-awaited special events.

We are industry professionals with a record of successful leading events that are guaranteed to exceed your expectations. All partners and speakers represent major technology leaders worldwide.


Global Market Trends
Many global experts including J. Kowalewski and H. Veltrop believe that currently there are two important development trends in the global heat treat industry. One is Vacuum Carburizing; the second is Nitriding and Nitrocarburizing.
The European Nitriding Summit 2014 is the first comprehensive conference on Nitriding in Europe. The first edition will take place in Poland this October. Ultimately it will move to become a biennial event and alternate between venues starting in Europe, Asia and North America.

The European Vacuum Carburizing Summit will follow in April 2015.


The purpose of these global conferences is to present newest trends, share knowledge, and enable people to establish business contacts. Composed of leading global players and top technical speakers, these premium meetings are an important tool in providing a platform for presenting the newest developments and sharing innovative and practical solutions to Nitriding problems.

This European Nitriding Summit 2014 will deal with all aspects of nitriding technologies (gas, plasma, salt, low pressure, nitrocaburizing and several special processes such as catalytic nitriding or Corr-I-Dur).

The broad range of topics covered makes our program interesting to various professionals working in the heat treatment industry, including commercial heat treaters, managers, operators, but also for manufacturers of furnaces and auxiliary equipment and for the whole range of suppliers & professionals servicing and maintaining heat treatment equipment.

Benefits for Participants
Those attending the European Nitriding Summit 2014 will have the chance to meet personally with a wide range of suppliers operating in the industry, potential customers and partners. You will be able to share experiences, update your knowledge of state-of-the-art Nitriding technologies, as well as find new contacts in the heat treating sector.
