Advantages of Thermo-Calc for the Aerospace Industry Highlighted in “Heat Treat Today”

Consistency in material properties and performance is critical to the aerospace industry. Small variations in material chemistry or process windows can have a large impact on the final part performance. The ability to predict and adjust for these variations can reduce scrap and part re-work. Metallurgists and process engineers responsible for heat treatments must adapt their processes when input variables change.

Thermo-Calc Software Supports Customers during Confinement

As months of uncertainty in the shadow of the corona crisis pass us by, authorities around the world are still advising many of us to work from home to prevent the spread of the virus. Responding to this advice, Thermo-Calc Software decided to offer complimentary licenses to existing customers to ensure that researchers working with our tools can continue to pursue their work. Since then, many members of the Thermo-Calc community have accepted the offer, and the feedback from them has been heartwarming. Anders Engström, President & CEO of Thermo-Calc Software AB, reflects on the decision.
