FNA 2020: Technical Sessions Announced

By Tom Morrison posted 10 days ago


It is proven that companies that have well-trained employees on trends, technology, and enhancements in their industry minimize errors, and increase productivity and morale. Knowing that, why would you pass on the opportunity to bring your top management to Furnaces North America 2020, where training is our top priority?


FNA is the Metal Treating Institute’s premier event every other year, bringing together over 1,700 decision makers, buyers, and users of heat treat equipment to train, network, and discuss key issues, trends, and technology. This year, FNA 2020 takes place in Louisville, KY on Sept 30 - Oct 2, 2020.


For each Furnaces North America (FNA), a group of heat treaters and suppliers team together to review a long list of abstracts. The absolute best presentations that hit at the heart of technical or training needs for the heat-treating industry are then selected for inclusion in the show’s technical program. This year’s team studied a record number of technical-session applications and have put together 35 highly-informative sessions.


The sessions were divided up into five major tracks:


  • Processes & Quality
  • Emerging Technologies
  • Operations & Productivity
  • Furnace Equipment & Controls
  • Furnace Maintenance


Titles of the 35 sessions are as follows:


  • Using Data Analytics to Improve Operational Efficiency and Customer Communications
  • New Pyrometry Changes AMS-2750F
