HK 2020 Cologne, Germany

We have always said that one of our favorite heat treat events in the world is the annual HK 2020 Congress held October of each year in Germany. We are now getting word that due to COVID 19 there will be substantial changes made and that this year the HK Congress will take place as an online event. We are awaiting more details from the organizers, AWT but to cut a long story short the usual exhibition will not be held this year which is very upsetting for both exhibitors and visitors alike. So far every major heat treating event that was due to be held in the first half of 2020 has been cancelled or postponed which makes you wonder about future events. The largest North American show of the year Furnaces North America (FNA) is scheduled for September 30 to October 2 in Louisville, Kentucky, USA and I am sure that many in the industry are wondering whether there will be any changes. We leave you with this photo of the ALD booth taken at the HK 2019 event in Cologne.
