Heat Treating Classroom Courses

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.

Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Gary Swiatek

This course provides an overview of essential aspects associated with various furnace units used to heat treat metallic parts. It will focus on furnace problems and how to select the best equipment for your needs. It will also include information on how to identify common problems using a proven procedure, referred to M.A.T.T., to identify and ultimately solve your heat treating furnace problems. This course will also feature an interactive activity on selecting the proper Heat Treating equipment.

Practical Induction Heat Treating, July 17-19, 2017

July 17, 2017 - July 19, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Marv McKimpson

This course covers the role of induction heat treating in producing reliable products, often with considerable savings in energy, labor, floor space, and time. The basic principles heat treatment and of induction heating are presented. Methods of selecting equipment, frequency, and power; heating and quenching coil design; cooling systems design; current applications; establishment and process control of induction processes; sources and solutions of induction heat treating problems; process and quality control techniques are described in depth. Examples will be provided on the determination of operational costs. The final lesson deals with the important question of system maintenance.

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.

Practical Heat Treating, September 25-28, 2017

September 25, 2017 - September 28, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. William L. Mankins, FASM

Practical Heat Treating Teaches the "how" of Heat Treating. You will learn the heat treatment process of steel as well as what type of atmosphere is best for furnace operations for the safety of personal and equipment. In addition you will be able to recognize heat treating problems and establish quality control procedures. Plant Managers, Quality Control specialists and Engineers alike will be able to benefit from attending this 4 day event.

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.

Vacuum Heat Treating, November 16-17, 2017

November 16, 2017 - November 17, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Virginia Osterman, PhD.

This course provides the background and practical applications of vacuum furnace heat treating. You will be introduced to the fundamentals of vacuum furnaces and related system components. A complete understanding of vacuum measurement and vacuum pumping systems is needed to perform various vacuum heat treating processes and will be reviewed. You will leave with a practical understanding of vacuum technology as related to heat treating and it is a follow up to courses which cover the fundamental metallurgy of what happens when metals are heated and cooled. This course will include hands on instruction utilizing the ASM Laboratory Vacuum Furnace and include examples of real world heat treating cycles.
