Classified as: Metals and Alloys

Price: $2468.00 Member Price: $2116.00

The 15 DVD set is available as individual DVDs. This course is for:

  • Understanding the basic technology of heat treating, welding, casting, forging, metalforming, electroplating, corrosion prevention, testing, powder metallurgy and machining
  • Understanding how to interpret and explain the basics of metallurgy as they apply to your specific products


Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgist provides a concise and thorough overview of metallurgy as it is applied in industry today. Extraction of metals from mineral ores, production of raw materials such as ingots and billets, fabrication into usable products, methods of joining, corrosion and its prevention, and inspection techniques are key topics in this course.

To answer the question "What is metal?", there are sections devoted to the crystal structure of metals and why most metals are "hardenable"; to materials properties and their relationship to microstructure; and to the reasons for alloying of metals to achieve specific properties.
