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.

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 and drive your products success. That is why it's crucial to have knowledge about what metals are, how they behave, and why they behave differently than ceramics, glass, and plastics. This course will provide you with essential knowledge about metallurgy and how to apply it your business or industry.

Steel Metallography August 7-10, 2017

August 07, 2017 - August 10, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Laura Moyer

The ability to understand and control microstructure and properties in steels is critical for many industries and applications.This course deals specifically with the metallographic preparation of steels to reveal the microstructure accurately and provides a unique perspective and understanding for interpretation of steel microstructures. The class works as a team to build a reference notebook of steel microstructures and will perform heat treatment, metallography, hardness, and micro-hardness testing. The class will learn to determine prior austenitic grain size, and understand the effect of cooling rate on the resulting microstructure; learn how to identify Austenite, Ferrite, Pearlite, Bainite (upper and lower), and Martensite (lath and plate), and understand the formation and growth of these microstructures. The course includes video shot using a hot stage microscope at Lehigh University that shows several phase transformations common to steels in real time
