Introduction to Metallurgical Lab Practices, August 28-30, 2017

August 28, 2017 - August 30, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. John Peppler

Basic techniques commonly used in a Metallurgical Laboratory will be taught in this class. You will become familiar with metallography by sectioning, mounting, grinding, polishing and etching samples. These samples will be examined and photomicrographs obtained by using optical microscopes equipped with digital cameras. Various Microhardness and Macrohardness equipment will be used to demonstrate the strengths and limitations of the tests. Tensile Testing and Impact Testing will be performed on standard samples. Basic principles and sample demonstration on the use of Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) will be covered. Hands on testing complimented by lectures on the basics of the tests will give a thorough overview of these procedures. This is the course you need if you learn by doing and could use an overview of Metallographic Lab procedures.

Basics of Heat Treating, September 11-13, 2017

September 11, 2017 - September 13, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Gary Swiatek

Heat treating is considered the least understood, but most integral part of the manufacturing processes. An efficient heat treating process reduces the overall manufacturing costs associated with energy use, scrap, re-work, and quality issues. Heat treating is critical for your business and industry.

Introduction to Thermal Spray, September 18-19, 2017

September 18, 2017 - September 19, 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. .

Powder Metallurgy for Additive Manufacturing, September 18-20, 2017

September 18, 2017 - September 20, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Howard Kuhn, Ph.D, FASM

Additive manufacturing (AM), also termed as "3-D Printing", is a digital manufacturing process, which uses 3-D design data to build objects by depositing material, usually layer upon layer. Often referred to as the third industrial revolution, the advancement of AM technologies has brought a revolutionary change in design, engineering and manufacturing processes. The rising popularity of AM across various industries has resulted in an exponential increase in demand for metal powders. Powder metallurgy (P/M) is a metal working process involving production of powdered metals and/ forming precision metal components from metal powders by compacting in a die. Materials now routinely processed by P/M include aerospace super alloys, low-alloy steels, and tool steels; some of which are virtually impossible to process by any other means. This course provides a comprehensive overview of the science and technology of both AM and P/M processes, the materials used in those processes, geometric flexibility, industrial applications and limitations.

Refractory Technology, September 18-20, 2017

September 18, 2017 - September 20, 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.
