JNewman Posted October 8, 2013 Share Posted October 8, 2013 I just received this email from the ASM who produce the Heat treaters guide which is the bible of industrial heat treating and costs about $250. I don't have a smart phone so cannot currently download the app, but I definitely will be when I get a smart phone. Sounds like it is a free app and would be well worth downloading even if there was a nominal cost. Materials Park, Ohio - October 8, 2013. ASM International and the ASM Heat Treating Society are pleased to announce the recent release of the Heat Treater’s Guide Companion, now available in the Apple and Google App Stores. The free app provides ready reference data on nearly 170 carbon and alloy steels and includes information on chemical composition, similar steels, characteristics, forging instructions, and recommended heat treating practices and processing sequences. The app is geared towards engineers, metallurgists, technicians, sales engineers, and managers so they can quickly access the data conveniently at a client’s site, on the shop floor, in the lab, or at the office. The app was developed so it can be used by itself or as a companion to the popular and trusted ASM International Heat Treater’s Guide print and online database products, which provide additional heat treating information such as representative micrographs, isothermal transformation diagrams, cooling transformation diagrams, tempering curves and data on dimensional change. “More and more, ASM Heat Treating Society members and other industry professionals are requesting mobile access to data and information needed to accomplish work-related tasks. The Heat Treater’s Guide Companion is a first step in responding to that need, providing users with a fast, easy way to look up steel heat treating recipes,” stated Roger A. Jones, HTS President and Corporate President of Solar Atmospheres. “The app has generated a lot of interest and excitement within the heat treating community, and we’re excited to be a part of that.” Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
