Practical Interpretation of Microstructures, October 8-10, 2018

October 08, 2018 - October 10, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Daniel P. Dennies PhD, FASM

This "Hands-On" course presents information on microstructures, heat treatment and use of each group of alloys. You will be able to view actual structures on a projection screen.The features of the structures are pointed out and discussed. You will then examine the over 200 mounts at their microscope stations and compare them with an illustrated and annotated notebook of the structures. There are no required prerequisites, but the basic knowledge of sample preparation, heat treating or metallurgy will enhance the understanding of the presented material. You are encouraged to bring prepared metallographic specimens to the class for discussion.

Introduction to Thermal Spray, October 8-9, 2018

October 08, 2018 - October 09, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Richard A. Sayman

Thermal spraying has evolved from a technology designed to be a cost effective method of repairing worn components and machined parts, to a process used to provide improved part performance and add longer life to components. As the thermal spray profession has changed, so has the need to ensure safe and consistent methods for thermal spray operators.

Metallurgy of Steel for the Non-Metallurgist, October 15-17, 2018

October 15, 2018 - October 17, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Thomas K. (Tom) Glasgow, FASM

Steel is, technologically and economically, the most important of all materials. Understanding the metallurgy involved in making steel, in shaping it by hot or cold processes, in welding it, and in heat-treating it to develop any of the extraordinarily diverse combinations of strength, hardness, toughness, and ductility available is essential to successful manufacturing and construction. This course teaches the basics and delves into some of the more advanced topics critical to steel fabrication.

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. Jon 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.
