Q&A with Heat Treat 21 attendees


HEAT TREAT 2021 is scheduled to hit St. Louis, Missouri, September 14-16. The show will bring thousands of industry experts and insiders to the Gateway to the West, where they will be on hand with knowledge to take heat-treating into 2022 and beyond. Thermal Processing reached out to several exhibitors and asked them to share their plans for HEAT TREAT 2021. If you’re going to be at the show, be sure and stop by their booths for more information.


Booth # 1827
Mike Coburn, Technical Sales

Why attend HEAT TREAT 2021? Three reasons: networking, technical sessions, and camaraderie. Networking allows multiple customers to visit us in one spot. It’s an opportunity to mingle with different disciplines such as engineering, purchasing, maintenance, and operations. Technical sessions are worth attending. Short and succinct, they speak to technical areas that are new to me. I not only want to be an expert on my own material, but I also want to understand other processes a customer might be engaged in. You can’t beat the camaraderie, whether it’s an opening night party or taking guests out to dinner. It builds strong relationships.
