The Quenching and Distortion Engineering conference series follows up on the former series of IDE, organized by IWT Bremen, Germany, and QCD, organized by IFHTSE. These two have been merged into the QDE series. In 2021 the QDE conference is also part of the European Conference on Heat Treatment series which is supported by european organisations. Consequently the ECHT and QDE conference will cover both aspects:
ECHT and QDE 2021 will present research and practical procedures relative to the control of a component´s distortion by an interdisciplinary approach starting at the design phase up to the ﬁnal heat treatment and eventual hard machining, including, most prominently, quenching. It will discuss the state of the art and novel solutions in eﬃcient and economic facilities, media and procedures for the quenching process as well as basic mechanisms and interactions between diﬀerent production steps leading to distortion and the measures to control changes in shape and dimensions including modeling and simulation in industrial production processes of metallic parts.
