These technical articles and white papers included in our extensive collection of literature below were all authored or co-authored by our very own Dr. Edward Rolinski and/or President and CEO, Gary Sharp.
Dr. Edward Rolinski graduated from the Warsaw University of Technology Department of Mechanical Manufacturing Engineering with a Master of Science and specialization in the Physical Metallurgy and Heat Treatment of Metals. He received his Doctorate of Philosophy in 1978 and Doctor of Science degree in 1989 for his thesis and scientific work on the application of the cold plasma/glow discharges to the surface treatment of solids. Before moving to the United States, Rolinski worked as an Associate Professor at the Warsaw University of Technology teaching physical metallurgy and surface engineering. He took three sabbatical leaves during his academic career. He spent these sabbaticals conducting research on the plasma nitriding of titanium alloys at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and working on the plasma/gas nitriding of various iron alloys at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, England. He also taught Physical Metallurgy at the University of Melbourne in Australia. His industrial experience in the United States includes working as a Metallurgist for Peterson Engineering Company and as Director of Research and Quality Control for Advanced Metallurgical Corp. Rolinski joined Advanced Heat Treat Corp. in February of 1994 and currently holds the position of Vice President of Technology. He has published over 50 scientific and technical papers and coauthored a book. In 2010 he spoke on the role of reactive sputtering in plasma nitriding at the 2nd Edition of Nitriding Symposium.
Gary Sharp earned his Bachelor of Science in Science and Chemistry at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, Iowa. After graduation, he spent fifteen years working for the leading agricultural manufacturer, John Deere, where he held a variety of positions including Chemical Engineer, Project Manager and Marketing and Sales. In 1981, Sharp branched off from John Deere to establish Advanced Heat Treat Corp. (AHT). Since then, AHT has grown into a multimillion dollar company. Sharp continues to serve as AHT's President and CEO and his dedication to the company plays a key role in its success as a global leader and provider of heat treat services. He is a member of ASM Heat Treat Society, Metal Treating Institute (MTI) and the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB). Sharp has also spoken at numerous conferences and has authored multiple scientific and technical articles.
