June 13, 2017 - June 16, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Thomas K. (Tom) Glasgow, FASM

Corrosion occurs in all industries from automotive and aerospace to infrastructure, construction, petroleum, power, paper making, food processing, bio-engineering, and pharmaceuticals. Corrosion is costly, dangerous, wasteful, and unsightly. It can be predicted, controlled, and even avoided. This class presents an overview of the eight major corrosion processes and related corrosion monitoring, prediction and control mechanisms. The principles discussed are applicable to all metals. Emphasis is on practical applications of corrosion technology to industrial corrosion problems.

Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgist™ Blended, June 13-15, 2017

June 13, 2017 - June 14, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Robert B. Pond, Jr.

Metals and alloys are used in the greatest variety of applications of all engineering materials. As such it is essential for those involved in manufacturing, engineering and construction to have an understanding of what metals are, how they behave, and why they behave differently than ceramics, glass, and plastics. It is also important to understand how they can be made stronger or more corrosion resistant, how they can be shaped by casting, forging, forming, machining, or welding, and how these processes can alter properties. This course provides this important knowledge to those who are not metallurgists.

Basics of Heat Treating, June 19-21, 2017

June 19, 2017 - June 21, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Gary Swiatek

Heat treating is an integral part of a manufacturing process. The most expensive, highly machined part is worthless if it is not heat treated to the proper specifications. Heat treating is considered the least understood of the manufacturing processes. An efficient heat treating process reduces the overall manufacturing costs associated with energy use, scrap, re-work, and quality issues.

Refractory Technology, June 19-21, 2017

June 19, 2017 - June 21, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Carl Frahme, PhD

Modern society is highly dependent on heat processing for manufacturing, materials production and processing, and energy production. Although relatively unknown to the general public, refractory materials enable heat processing to occur. The extraction, production, and processing of metals, petrochemical production, ceramic production, glass production, and a huge variety of other heat processes are dependent on refractories. This course gives an in-depth view of modern refractory technology, materials, and their application in various industries.

Introduction to Thermal Spray, July 17-18, 2017

July 17, 2017 - July 18, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Richard A. Sayman

Thermal spraying has evolved from a technology designed to be a cost effective method of repairing worn components and machined parts to a process used to provide improved part performance and add longer life to components. As the thermal spray profession has changed, so has the need to ensure safe and consistent methods for thermal spray operators. ASM International brought together the leaders in the Thermal Spray Society to compile their knowledge and experience in a comprehensive, easy to understand course.
