The intensive 2-day course, presented by Arvin Global Solutions (AGS), is designed to provide attendees with a wide range of information for more fully understanding a variety of heat treat methods and how to minimize the impact of distortion during the manufacturing process.

In manufacturing, a broad knowledge of the available heat treat methods is critical for being competitive.
