Gleeble Webinar Series Thumbnail


Spring 2020:  As we all adapt to the challenges of working remotely, it is important to stay connected. To better support and empower Gleeble users, DSI is hosting a series of interactive Gleeble discussions. We invite you to join us.

Each webinar will focus on different topics, ranging from specific training and best practices to applications and research presentations. Our goal will be to keep each meeting under an hour with a short presentation by one of our experts, followed by Q&A if time permits.

We look forward to connecting with you soon.  If you have any questions, or ideas for topics that you would like covered during a webinar, please don't hesitate to contact us. (

Next Webinar:  Episode 7 - Gleeble Hot Rolling and TMCP Studies

The knowledge of parameters such as roll forces, active softening mechanisms as well as the characterization of microstructural evolution is of utmost importance to improve and optimize industrial hot rolling. This webinar, hosted by Dr. Fulvio Siciliano will start with a brief review of the metallurgical processes that take place during hot rolling and then outline how the Gleeble platform can be used to simulate these processes. Additionally, industrial continuous casting and hot rolling cases will be discussed to demonstrate how Gleeble results can be applied in production.

Date: Thursday, June 11 , 2020 from 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM (New York/ East Coast)

Dilatometry Applications using the Gleeble Platform 

Dilatometry is one of the most popular applications studied in the Gleeble. While dilatometry tests can be relatively simple to perform in the Gleeble, it is important to review best practices and test setup to ensure accurate, repeatable results. Dr. Brian Allen will provide an overview of the application and discuss the value of dilatometry, followed by Mr. Eric Deitz, DSI System Service Engineer who will provide more detail on best practices and procedures when performing dilatometry tests.
