Trade fair preview of the Heat Treatment Congress 2018

01.10.18 - Industrial furnaces in hardening processes usually need to stay functional for up to 30 years. Due to the high stress in the furnace, many system components - such as fan blades or pumps - can wear out and fail unexpectedly, which leads to unplanned downtimes of the systems. To prevent such failures, the American SBS Corporation has developed WatchDogg, a cloud-based monitoring system that supports predictive maintenance.


Damian is Ironman

Hundreds of kilometers in the water, on the bike or in the run have paid off; our technical director Damian Szarapanowski is an Ironman! On 19.08.2018 it was time, after months of preparation phase the starting signal in the Polish Wolsztyn fell at 6 o'clock in the morning to one of the most famous and strenuous competitions in the world.


Ban of Combustion Motors

08.09.17 - Effects for the Heat the Treatment Industry - Latest in 2030 only emission free cars are about to be authorized in Germany. What sounds like a horror scenario for the car industry is the German governments announced intention to eliminate all combustion motors from German roads within 13 years. But which effects will such a ban have for the German industry in general and for the heat treatment Industry in specific?


Avion is closed from the 27.12.16 until 30.12.16

16.12.16 - Due to the holidays this year Avion Europe is closed from the 27.12.16 to 30.12.16. In this context, we wish you already a Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

AVION Europa at the Heat Treatment Congress 2016

All right, it´s over already... Three days on the Heat Treatment Congress (HK) in Cologne
with each and everybody important in the German Heat Treatment industry.

Just the German Heat Treatment Industry? 

This question is rather justified!


It is noticeable that more foreign visitors are attending the trade show and our booth.

Especially our friends from the Turkish Heat Treat association MIDAS were welcome since they always
add some fun and good spirit. This time with almost 30 participants. We look forward to invite them for next year’s event! 

But also the increased number of foreign exhibitors demonstrate the changing importance of the Congress.

We sure hoped to get some more visitors to our stand in comparison to the “double feature” trade show of last year with Thermprocess and HK 2015.
One reason may have been that we did not show too many novelties in Cologne. To see and to be seen was more of our intention but this will change in next year’s event. We promise! 

We also want to present AVION and SSI in a complete new look!  Check it out, preparations did start already since “after the game is before the game”…

Make a note for Oct. 25th – 27th 2017, again in Cologne.

By the way:  How did you like the HK in the City of Cologne?
I personally preferred the smaller but cozier City of Wiesbaden.

At the end, it is only my personal taste! What is your opinion?  Let me have your feedback!


Best regards to the world of Heat Treatment
