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.

Mechanical Testing of Metals, April 16-19, 2018

April 16, 2018 - April 19, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. William L. Mankins, FASM

This is a hands-on introduction to standard mechanical testing and the properties derived from those tests, together with a discussion of testing philosophy to determine suitability for service and suitability for manufacture. Standardized testing procedures (ASTM, SAE, AWWA, etc.) are discussed, including limitations of a test, why specific requirements are present in the test procedure, and interpretation of experimental results. There is discussion of how metallurgical variables can affect test results, and how microstructure can affect selection of a given testing procedure. (For example, hardness testing of wrought vs. cast material.) This course is taught at a level that requires some algebraic manipulation as well as the use of logarithms. Students are required to bring a scientific calculator.

Nitinol for Medical Devices, April 17-19, 2018

April 17, 2018 - April 19, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Alan R. Pelton, Ph.D.

The unique properties of the shape memory alloy Nitinol have led to many transformational medical device innovations, including self-expanding stents, percutaneously delivered heart valves, kink resistant guide wires, and self-locking orthopedic devices. Its super elastic qualities allow the alloy to withstand large amounts of recoverable strain, and its potential for excellent bio compatibility and fatigue resistance make it the material of choice for some of the most demanding medical device applications. However, Nitinol's unique properties are very dependent upon alloy composition and processing. In this course, you will learn the variables that affect Nitinol's properties, how to control them, and how its unique properties can be applied in medical devices. Hands on in the lab is included.

Heat Treating for the Non-Heat Treater, April 24-26, 2018

April 24, 2018 - April 26, 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.

Metallography for Failure Analysis, April 30-May 3, 2018

April 30, 2018 - May 03, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Ms. Frauke Hogue FASM

This practical lab course focuses on metallographic techniques of failure analysis and will take you through the process of initial visual examination, fracture cleaning, documentation, and unusual metallographic sample preparation techniques and metallographic interpretation of various failure modes. You are encouraged to bring their own samples to prepare. Samples of various failure modes will also be provided.

Principles of Failure Analysis, May 21-23, 2018

May 21, 2018 - May 23, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073, USA
Instructor: Dr. Daniel P. Dennies PhD, 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.
