Buehler Ltd., an ITW company in lake Bluff, Ill., is to present a webinar (Dec. 4 - 6) that will cover a variety of issues commonly encountered in both metallography and hardness testing of ferrous materials, including common problems and how to avoid them. Critical factors for sample preparation include blade selection, mounting selection, cost-effective preparation techniques, image analysis, and hardness testing.


The webinar is aimed at metallurgical technicians, engineers. and others who carry out metallographic preparation of ferrous materials in laboratories or production environments. The Buehler webinar will be conducted by its global material scientists and will be applicable for those testing iron-based metals (steel, stainless steel, iron, iron-based superalloys) and most traditional heat and surface treatment materials (carburizing, nitriding, induction hardening, etc).


According to Dr. Mike Keeble, Buehler US Laboratory Manager, “Many customers have requested information about common problems with iron, steel, and heat treated surfaces. As the economy is ramping up so is their production, and they want to be sure that their metallography techniques are not compromised.


The webinar will also delve into fundamental considerations for a wide variety of steel and stainless materials, coatings, heat and surface treatments. It will include: Efficiency, Quality, Cost Savings, Etching for Microstructure, Accuracy and Reproducibility in Hardness Testing.
