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.

The Basics of Heat Treating course provides an interactive approach to learning the basic elements associated with the heat treating of metals. The course includes a variety of real-life manufacturing situations for discussion. There is also an interactive question and answer sessions integrated throughout the course.

During this course you will have the opportunity to hear from two guest experts in the heat treat field. An oxygen probe specialist will discuss the function of oxygen probes and the role they play in furnace atmosphere control. A second speaker will discuss the role of up-to-date thermocouple use in modern heat treating. This will give you a deeper look into the industry of heat treating and its importance to your industry.

Hands-on activities and demonstrations are integrated throughout the course to help guide you. These activities will take place in a newly renovated and state-of-the-art lab and will focus on:

  • Hardness testing
  • Steel hardening
  • Tensile testing and Impact testing
  • Microstructures including a demo of the newly acquired SEM scope
  • Thermocouples



  • Part designers
  • Material specifiers
  • Purchasing agents
  • Technicians
  • Management
  • Sales professionals
  • Anyone with an interest in the basics of heat treating



Upon the completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Explain the importance and application of the Iron cementite diagram (iron carbon equilibrium Diagram) and its application
  • Describe the Time Temperature Transformation diagram and it influence on phase transformations and microstructure
  • Predict the mechanical properties and microstructures resulting from heat treatment initiated by thermal transformation
  • Identify and solve heat treat problems using the material, atmosphere, time, and temperature (M.A.T.T.) procedure demonstrated in class
