Thermal Spray for Gas and Oil, July 19, 2017

July 19, 2017 - July 19, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Roger Kaufold

This course is beneficial to those thermal spray operators in the oil and gas industry. Given the special needs of the oil and gas sector for wear and corrosion resistant coatings with high longevity, the certification process and validation of the coatings produced by those examining them will need to be different. Therefore, this course includes training and testing information that applies specifically to the oil and gas sector.

Nitinol for Medical Devices, July 24-26, 2017

July 24, 2017 - July 26, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Alan R. Pelton, Ph.D.

The unique properties of the shape memory alloy Nitinol have led to many transformational medical device innovations, including self-expanding stents, percutaneously delivered heart valves, kink resistant guide wires, and self-locking orthopedic devices. Its super elastic qualities allow the alloy to withstand large amounts of recoverable strain, and its potential for excellent bio compatibility and fatigue resistance make it the material of choice for some of the most demanding medical device applications. However, Nitinol's unique properties are very dependent upon alloy composition and processing. In this course, you will learn the variables that affect Nitinol's properties, how to control them, and how its unique properties can be applied in medical devices. Hands on in the lab is included.

Metallographic Techniques, July 24-27, 2017

July 24, 2017 - July 27, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Nat (Natalio) Saenz

You will prepare a variety of, hard, soft, ferrous and non ferrous alloys under the guidance of the instructor. Manual preparation is required in order to understand the principle behind the process. Semi-automatic preparation is discussed and demonstrated on state of the art equipment. After a lecture on the best use of the metallograph the structures of the materials are documented and entered in a laboratory notebook that is graded and returned to the students for future reference. Grain size determination, measurements and micro hardness testing complete the class.

Medical Device Design Validation and Failure Analysis, July 27-28, 2017

July 27, 2017 - July 28, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. William Kane

This course provides you with a fundamental understanding of the design process necessary to make robust medical devices. Fracture, fatigue, stress analysis, and corrosion design validation approaches are examined, and real-world medical device design validations are reviewed. Further, since failures often provide us with important information about any design, mechanical and materials failure analysis techniques are covered. Several medical device failure analysis case studies are provided.

Heat Treatment, Microstructures and Performance of Carbon and Steel Alloys, July 31 - August 2, 2017

July 31, 2017 - August 02, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Dana Medlin

Heat treated bar and forging steels remain the major material for parts (such as shafts, gears, bearing, fasteners, oil country tubulars, aircraft landing gear, tools of all sorts, and many other applications) manufactured for demanding applications that require high or ultra-high strength, high fatigue resistance, and /or high wear resistance, all combined with good levels of toughness and fracture resistance. This course will review the phases that form in carbon and alloy steels and the modifications produced in the iron-carbon diagram by alloying and manufacture. Microstructures and the phase transformations by which they are produced in all phases of manufacture, from casting through quench and tempering, will be described and related to mechanical properties and performance, including fracture and potential embrittlement phenomena.

Aluminum and Its Alloys, August 1-3, 2017

August 01, 2017 - August 03, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Kevin Anderson PhD, FASM

Aluminum is a widely used metal that is playing an increasingly dominant role in the green economy. Aluminum's high strength to weight ratio, low cost, recycle ability, and other positive attributes are some of the reasons that aluminum is being adopted as a material of choice by weight conscious component engineers. This class uses hundreds of hands - on, real - world aluminum components and metallurgical samples to illustrate concepts in the text. Aluminum literature is also provided as a valuable resource for people working with aluminum and aluminum alloy products. Students are encouraged to bring questions and their real-world problems to class for discussion and resolution. This is the ideal class for someone who will be actively working with the many diverse aspects of aluminum technology.

Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgistâ„¢ Blended, August 1-2, 2017

August 01, 2017 - August 02, 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 metals and alloys, how these behave, and how the science of metals informs the technology of metals and alloys. It is also important to understand how metals are made stronger, more corrosion resistant, how they are shaped by casting, forging, forming, machining, or welding, and how manufacturing processes can alter properties. The course provides this important knowledge in an accessible form for those who are not metallurgists.
