Heat Treating Furnaces and Equipment, June 13-14, 2019

June 13, 2019 - June 14, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Jon L. Dossett, P.E.

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.

Aluminum and Its Alloys, June 18-20, 2019

June 18, 2019 - June 20, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Kevin Anderson, PhD, FASM

Aluminum is a widely used metal that is playing an increasingly dominant role in the green economy. Aluminum's high strength to weight ratio, low cost, recycle ability, and other positive attributes are some of the reasons that aluminum is being adopted as a material of choice by weight conscious component engineers. This class uses hundreds of hands - on, real - world aluminum components and metallurgical samples to illustrate concepts in the text. Aluminum literature is also provided as a valuable resource for people working with aluminum and aluminum alloy products. Students are encouraged to bring questions and their real-world problems to class for discussion and resolution. This is the ideal class for someone who will be actively working with the many diverse aspects of aluminum technology.

Metallurgy of Steel for the Non-Metallurgist, June 24-26, 2019

June 24, 2019 - June 26, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Robert L. Freed, PhD, 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.

Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgist® Midlands, June 24-27, 2019

June 24, 2019 - June 27, 2019
Columbia, South Carolina, 29203, United States
Instructor: George D. Neale, MS, PE

Metals and alloys are used in the greatest variety of applications of all engineering materials and drive your products success. That is why it's crucial to have knowledge about what metals are, how they behave, and why they behave differently than ceramics, glass, and plastics. This course will provide you with essential knowledge about metallurgy and how to apply it your business or industry.

Mechanical Testing of Metals, July 8-11, 2019

July 08, 2019 - July 11, 2019
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.

Introduction to Thermal Spray, July 10-11, 2019

July 10, 2019 - July 11, 2019
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.

HT, Microstructures and Performance Carbon and Alloy Steels, July 22-24, 2019

July 22, 2019 - July 24, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Dana Medlin, PhD

Heat treated bar and forging steels remain the major material for parts (such as shafts, gears, bearing, fasteners, oil country tubulars, aircraft landing gear, tools of all sorts, and many other applications) manufactured for demanding applications that require high or ultra-high strength, high fatigue resistance, and /or high wear resistance, all combined with good levels of toughness and fracture resistance. This course will review the phases that form in carbon and alloy steels and the modifications produced in the iron-carbon diagram by alloying and manufacture. Microstructures and the phase transformations by which they are produced in all phases of manufacture, from casting through quench and tempering, will be described and related to mechanical properties and performance, including fracture and potential embrittlement phenomena.

Stainless Steels, July 23-26, 2019

July 23, 2019 - July 26, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Robert L. Freed, PhD, FASM

Stainless steels have emerged as one of the more important man-made materials, designed for strength, corrosion resistance, and ease of fabrication. Continued growth in the use of stainless steels provides an incentive to understand their properties, processing, and response to various fabrication routes. This course provides the important facts to help master these alloys for a wide variety of uses.
