Practical Interpretation of Microstructures, January 21-24, 2019

January 21, 2019 - January 24, 2019
2376 E. Pacifica Pl. Compton, CA, 90220, USA
Instructor: Ms. Frauke Houge, 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 Metallurgical Lab Practices, January 28-30, 2019

January 28, 2019 - January 30, 2019
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.
