The innovation pressure in the last decay has continued and will even accelerate the transformation for the next ten years. The need for sustainable production profoundly impacts the supplier industry, and it opens new ways to increase manufacturing efficiency. Metallurgy is a crucial part of the supply chain, and alternative production methods have become more popular, not at least because of energy costs, CO2 footprint, and increasing lack of resources. In recent years a dramatic development of high-performance digital solutions allows going alternative ways to produce high-end products in the field of metallurgical processing.

This paper discusses various heat treatment processes and how digital solutions can support a producer to be more innovative and, consequently, more competitive in the long-term view. An example shows how an exemplary control process is designed to modernize an existing heat treatment facility and the role of controlled reactive gases to determine the part quality.
