The Nordic Community for Fast Steel Heat Treatments (NorFast-HT) focuses on creating a better world by decreasing the environmental load caused by steel manufacturing, fabrication and use of steel-based applications. The target of the research is to develop new technologies and processes for producing high-performance steel grades and products utilizing efficient green manufacturing, work-shop practices and newest experimental research findings. The Community has unique facilities and expertise for both industry-related and academic steel research. The Community, presented by certain Finnish and Swedish universities, research organizations and companies, covers the whole chain from raw materials to manufacturing, fabrication and use of final end products.
Currently the Community has one ongoing project, High Frequency Induction Technology for advanced Materials Processing, or InTeMP.
