Nitinol for Medical Devices, February 25-27, 2019

February 25, 2019 - February 27, 2019
Santa Clara, CA, 95054, USA
Instructor: Dr. Alan R. Pelton, PhD

The unique properties of the shape memory alloy Nitinol have led to many transformational medical device innovations, including self-expanding stents, percutaneous delivered heart valves, kink resistant guide wires, and self-locking orthopedic devices. Its superelastic qualities allow the alloy to withstand large amounts of recoverable strain, and its potential for excellent biocompatibility and fatigue resistance make it the material of choice for some of the most demanding medical device applications.

Principles of Failure Analysis (Failure Analysis Part 2), February 27 -March 1, 2019

February 27, 2019 - March 01, 2019
2376 E. Pacifica Pl., Rancho Dominguez, CA, 90220, USA
Instructor: Daniel P. Dennies, Ph.D., FASM

This lecture course is designed to provide the knowledge to bridge the gap between theory and practice of failure analysis. This course presents a very practical approach to failure analysis for those who are new to the field or those who want an update. It is also designed for technicians with the pre-requisites and those interested in understanding how knowledge of failure analysis can lead to better productivity. Causes of fractures are explained with diagrams of stress application and distribution. Many case histories of failures and their elimination are highlighted throughout the course.

Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgist®, March 4-6, 2019

March 04, 2019 - March 06, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Robert B. Pond, Jr., PhD

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.

Aluminum and Its Alloys, March 5-7, 2019

March 05, 2019 - March 07, 2019
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.

Steel Metallography, March 11-14, 2019

March 11, 2019 - March 14, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Laura Moyer, PhD

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

Titanium and Its Alloys, March 11-14, 2019

March 11, 2019 - March 14, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Daniel P. Dennies, Ph.D., FASM

Titanium and its alloys are a versatile family of metals with applications in many industries. They have high modulus and strength-to-weight ratios, excellent corrosion resistance, and superior biocompatibility.

Metallographic Techniques, March 18-21, 2019

March 18, 2019 - March 21, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Natalio T. (Nat) Saenz, FASM

During this course, participants receive intensive instruction and assistance in learning the principles of metallography. Manual preparation, automatic preparation, and hands-on activities, such as preparing a variety of hard, soft, ferrous, and non-ferrous alloys, are used to demonstrate many metallographic techniques.

Corrosion, March 18-21, 2019

March 18, 2019 - March 21, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Thomas K. (Tom) Glasgow, FASM

Corrosion occurs in all industries from automotive and aerospace to infrastructure, construction, petroleum, power, paper making, food processing, bio-engineering, and pharmaceuticals. Corrosion is costly, dangerous, wasteful, and unsightly. It can be predicted, controlled, and even avoided. This class presents an overview of the eight major corrosion processes and related corrosion monitoring, prediction and control mechanisms. The principles discussed are applicable to all metals. Emphasis is on practical applications of corrosion technology to industrial corrosion problems.

HT, Microstructures and Performance Carbon and Alloy Steels, March 18-20, 2019

March 18, 2019 - March 20, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dana Medlin, PhD

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.
