INTERTECH 2013 is the Biennial International Conference dedicated to technological advancement and application development with an emphasis on increased productivity and performance using industrial diamond, cubic boron nitride, CVD diamond, polycrystallines and related materials classified as superabrasives.
In 2013 INTERTECH will focus on superabrasive applications and developments specific to the Aerospace and Defense industries. The reason for this focus is the expanded use of exotic materials used in the manufacturing processes for aircraft and defense systems. These exotic materials like superalloys, ceramics, high silica aluminum, composites and others are very light and strong but because of their composition are extremely difficult to machine and grind when manufacturing parts and components. In order to maintain productivity and process improvements, superabrasives need to be used in all manufacturing operations. The characteristics and properties of superabrasives allow for more precision, less scrap and no metallurgical damage on the finished parts. These results are extremely important in all industries, but critical in the aerospace industry.
This conference is designed to provide a blend of commercial and technical topics and serve as a global "meeting of the minds" for technologists and business leaders. Historically, INTERTECH has been the most successful conference held on superabrasives, drawing global audiences from commercial and scientific communities with myriad disciplines
INTERTECH 2013 will continue with that prevailing mission to be the largest, most expansive conference ever conducted in this industry. INTERTECH 2013 will have global leaders in Research, Superabrasive Synthesis, Manufacturing and Application Development of superabrasives in attendance. Discover and share the most significant product developments and new applications in superabrasive technology at INTERTECH 2013!
