Authored by nationally recognized authority, F.V. Lenel, Professor Emeritus, RPI. Powder Metallurgy (P/M) has been a small but rapidly growing source of near-net shaped parts for industry. The success of the P/M process derives from its ability to mass-produce complex structural parts with savings in labor, material, and/or energy.
This course is designed to increase the technical knowledge of those involved in the heat treatment of metals and alloys. Emphasis is on process control and quality control inspection procedures, since both are necessary to provide heat treated products to meet industry standards and specifications.
Heat Treatment of Steel is a comprehensive course that covers practical heat treating of carbon, alloy, stainless and tool steels. In this course, there is additional emphasis on process applications, including valuable information on atmosphere control, quenching, temperature control and the type of equipment that is proper for different types of heat treating operations.
This course focuses on the maintenance of industrial furnaces and associated thermal processing equipment. Batch and continuous furnaces, both with and without prepared protective atmospheres, are included. Associated equipment is covered for atmosphere generators, vacuum and induction heating.
Welding metallurgy is a complex subject because it requires knowledge of materials, welding processes, design, and inspection.
Practical Heat Treating teaches the actual heat treating process or the "how" of heat treating, as compared to "Heat Treatment of Steel" and "Principles of Heat Treating" which are intended to impart the fundamental metallurgical knowledge of what happens when metals are heated and cooled or the "why" of heat treatment.
