Introduction to Metallurgical Lab Practices, March 20-22, 2018

March 20, 2018 - March 22, 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.

Powder Metallurgy for Additive Manufacturing, March 27-29, 2018

March 27, 2018 - March 29, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Howard Kuhn, Ph.D, FASM

Additive manufacturing (AM), also termed as "3-D Printing", is a digital manufacturing process, which uses 3-D design data to build objects by depositing material, usually layer upon layer. Often referred to as the third industrial revolution, the advancement of AM technologies has brought a revolutionary change in design, engineering and manufacturing processes. The rising popularity of AM across various industries has resulted in an exponential increase in demand for metal powders. Powder metallurgy (P/M) is a metal working process involving production of powdered metals and/ forming precision metal components from metal powders by compacting in a die. Materials now routinely processed by P/M include aerospace super alloys, low-alloy steels, and tool steels; some of which are virtually impossible to process by any other means. This course provides a comprehensive overview of the science and technology of both AM and P/M processes, the materials used in those processes, geometric flexibility, industrial applications and limitations.

Basics of Heat Treating, April 9-11, 2018

April 09, 2018 - April 11, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Gary Swiatek

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.

Heat Treating Furnaces and Equipment, April 12-13, 2018

April 12, 2018 - April 13, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Gary Swiatek

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 two guided factory tours. This will give you an inside view of the world of heat treating furnaces and equipment.

Advanced Metallographic Techniques, May 14-17, 2018

May 14, 2018 - May 17, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Natalio (Nat) Saenz, FASM

Learn basic and advanced metallographic techniques that will reveal the true microstructural characteristics of a wide range of materials.  The theory and understanding of the proper selection of abrasives, lubricants, equipment, polishing cloths/pads and a basic understanding of chemomechanical polishing will be discussed. The course covers the preparation methods of most metals and alloys, composites, hard metals, ceramics and coatings.

Steel Metallography, June 4-7, 2018

June 04, 2018 - June 07, 2018
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
