Introduction to Metallurgical Lab Practices, September 23-25, 2019

September 23, 2019 - September 25, 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.

Practical Heat Treating, October 7-10, 2019

October 07, 2019 - October 10, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. William L. Mankins, FASM

Practical Heat Treating Teaches the "how" of Heat Treating. You will learn the heat treatment process of steel as well as what type of atmosphere is best for furnace operations for the safety of personal and equipment. In addition you will be able to recognize heat treating problems and establish quality control procedures. Plant Managers, Quality Control specialists and Engineers alike will be able to benefit from attending this 4 day event.

Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgist®, October 7-10, 2019

October 07, 2019 - October 10, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. McIntyre. R. Louthan, Jr., PhD, FASM

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.

Practical Fracture Mechanics, October 21-22, 2019

October 21, 2019 - October 22, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: John Landes, PhD

This course provides a practical understanding of fracture mechanics principles through a combination of lecture and problem solving activities. Design and failure analysis for monotonic and cyclic loaded components will be covered. Take away a new understanding of topics such as fracture toughness testing, ductile fracture testing, stress corrosion cracking and fatigue failure. Linear and non-linear fracture mechanic concepts and methods appropriate for a given loading or failure mode will be applied to make sense of this sometimes confusing discipline.

Nitinol for Medical Devices, October 21-23, 2019

October 21, 2019 - October 23, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Alan R. Pelton, PhD

The unique properties of the shape memory alloy Nitinol have led to many transformational medical device innovations, including self-expanding stents, percutaneous delivered heart valves, kink resistant guide wires, and self-locking orthopedic devices. Its superelastic qualities allow the alloy to withstand large amounts of recoverable strain, and its potential for excellent biocompatibility and fatigue resistance make it the material of choice for some of the most demanding medical device applications.

Heat Treating for the Non-Heat Treater, October 21-23, 2019

October 21, 2019 - October 23, 2019
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.

Practical Fractography, October 23-24, 2019

October 23, 2019 - October 24, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Dave Christie

This course provides a practical understanding of fractography through a combination of lecture and hands on experience. Theory and examples presented in the lectures are reinforced by macro and micro examination of failed parts in the lab. Visual examination as well as stereo microscopy and scanning electron microscopy will be utilized to interpret example fractures. Improve your skills in this vital portion of most failure examinations.

Vacuum Heat Treating, October 28-29, 2019

October 28, 2019 - October 29, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Virginia Osterman, PhD, FASM

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.
