January ASM/AFS Technical Meeting

Date: 1/12/2015
4:30 PM - 7:00 PM

Location: Barack's Pioneer Parkway

Speaker: Valery Rudnev, Inductoheat

Topic: Induction Tempering

In this presentation, Dr. Rudnev will review recent inventions and innovative solutions developed in the field of induction heat treating, addressing a variety of issues affecting the quality and cost-effectiveness of heat treatment processes. Technological breakthroughs resulting in substantial improvement of coil life, dramatic reduction of part distortion and potential elimination/reduction of post - heat treatment operations (i.e., straightening, grinding) will be emphasized. Common misassumptions and rarely discussed physical phenomena associated with the theory and practice of electromagnetic induction will be clarified. Special attention will be paid to the many intricacies encountered in the computer simulation of induction processes.

Dr. Valery Rudnev is Director of Science & Technology of Inductoheat and Chairman of the Technical Committee of the Forging Industry Association (FIA). He is considered by many as one of the leading global figures in the induction heating industry. Dr. Rudnev has more than 30 years of experience in induction heating and is known among induction heating professionals as "Professor Induction." In 2006, Dr. Rudnev was elected as a Fellow of the ASM Intl. His credits include a great deal of “know-how”, more than 40 patents and more than 200 engineering/scientific publications. He co-authored the “Handbook of Induction Heating”, CRC Press, 2003 and eight (8) chapters for several handbooks. Dr. Rudnev is Volume Editor of recently published ASM Handbook, Vol.4C: Induction Heating and Heat Treating, 2014
