This dynamic three-day course for non metallurgists, including designers, engineers, technicians, sales engineers and purchasers, is designed to give your company a strong competitive edge in today's rapidly changing marketplace.
The course focus is on translating complex principles and procedures into easy to understand terms that will enable participants to gain a valuable working understanding of the fundamental principles of metallurgy as well as the basic structure, properties, heat treatment and processing of metals and alloys.
Metallurgy pervades the full gamut of engineering product design and processes. It is the basis from which optimum properties for a given design are determined. Product life and maintenance are key issues in all manufacturing product design using metals. Component properties must be adequate to ensure the desired product life in complex environments involving wear, corrosion, and elevated temperatures.
Metallurgy is thus a vital basis of every major engineering field, and it contributes to virtually all engineering applications where a metallic component or system experiences use.
Practical training with significant benefits.
This interactive, highly practical course will be of significant benefit to anyone who needs a working understanding of metals and their applications, those with no previous training in metallurgy, technical, laboratory, and sales personnel, engineers from other disciplines, management and administrative staff, and non-technical support staff. Participants will gain a technical familiarization with ferrous and non-ferrous metals and their processing and optimization to meet specific product needs.
Emphasis will be given to the foundational concepts of metallic structures and phases and the latest developments in material processing, in combination with an overview of metallurgy, which will provide a solid foundation and understanding of the significance and impact of metallurgy in product design, whether you:
• Are seeking ways to cut costs, improve performance and increase profitability.
• Have employees who want to learn more about complementary or competitive technologies.
• Have employees who want to update present knowledge of metals, processing, and optimization.
• Have employees who are just starting out in the field and need a basic knowledge of metallurgy.
Participants will join in discussions guided by course instructors, who will encourage questions, comments, and participation at all times. There will also be opportunities to exchange ideas with the instructors and other participants during breaks, lunch, and after class adjourns. With this interactive format and the dynamic instructors, participants will find this intensive course to be extremely beneficial, as well as motivating and thoroughly enjoyable.
Key Course Topics.
The ways in which metal alloys are structured, how the structure affects their performance, how mechanical properties of metals are measured, and what influences these properties; what steels and cast irons are and what processing and chemical parameters influence their performance; what aluminum alloy metallurgy is and what influences their mechanical properties; how the environment affects the performance and durability of metals -- and much more, as shown in the Course Highlights listed below.
