Heat Treating for the Non-Heat Treater, October 22-24, 2018

October 22, 2018 - October 24, 2018
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, October 25-26, 2018

October 25, 2018 - October 26, 2018
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.

Basics of Heat Treating, November 5-7, 2018

November 05, 2018 - November 07, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. John L. Dossett, P.E.

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 Metallurgical Lab Practices, November 6-8, 2018

November 06, 2018 - November 08, 2018
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.

Heat Treating Furnaces and Equipment, November 8-9, 2018

November 08, 2018 - November 09, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. John L. Dossett, P.E.

Heat treating is key to most manufacturing process, so the equipment used is just as important as the process itself. This course provides an overview of essential aspects associated with various furnace units used to heat treat metallic parts. For your benefit, the course will take place in the classroom, as well as, in the heat treating lab. This will give you an inside view of the world of heat treating furnaces and equipment.

Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgist® Midlands Technical College, November 12 - 15, 2018

November 12, 2018 - November 15, 2018
Midlands Technical College - Northeast Campus
Instructor: Mr. George D. Neale MS, PE

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, November 13-15, 2018

November 13, 2018 - November 15, 2018
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.
