Magnesium- Science, Technology and Applications, October 23-24, 2017

October 23, 2017 - October 24, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Francis H. (Sam) Froes PhD

Magnesium is the lightest structural metal used today and the third most abundant metal in the earth's crust. Magnesium alloys are in use around the world in a variety of different applications, both structurally and non-structurally. An emerging interest in magnesium alloys for automotive and aerospace applications is based on the combination of high strength properties and low density. This course provides an overview of the science, technology and applications of magnesium and its alloys starting with the initial discovery of magnesium and tracing the development and applications up to the present day. This is an ideal course for someone who will be actively working with the many diverse aspects of magnesium technology.

Nitinol for Medical Devices, October 23-25, 2017

October 23, 2017 - October 25, 2017
Santa Clara, CA, 92610, 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.

Medical Device Design Validation and Failure Analysis, October 26-27, 2017

October 26, 2017 - October 27, 2017
Santa Clara, CA, 92610, 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.

Steel Metallography, October 30 - November 2, 2017

October 30, 2017 - November 02, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073, 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

Corrosion, November 6-9, 2017

November 06, 2017 - November 09, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Thomas K. (Tom) Glasgow, FASM

Corrosion occurs in all industries and it is vital to learn how to control, predict, and monitor the process. This course presents an overview of the eight major corrosion processes that can help you with your industrial corrosion problems. These problems cannot only be costly, but dangerous, wasteful, and unsightly.

Heat Treating for the Non-Heat Treater, November 13-15, 2017

November 13, 2017 - November 15, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. D. Scott MacKenzie, PhD FASM

This course is for the Non Heat Treater (part designers, material specifiers, purchasing agents and technicians) who need a basic education in heat treating and need to learn how to "speak the language". The focus will be on the "value added" by heat treating. The effects that heat treating process parameters (time, temperature and atmospheres) have on the final properties of a product and the links between microstructure and mechanical properties are discussed, as well as reasons for distortion, cracking and part rejections.
