Basics of Heat Treating

The Basics of Heat Treating course provides an interactive approach to learning the basic elements associated with the heat treating of metals. The course includes a variety of real-life manufacturing situations for discussion. There is also an interactive question and answer sessions integrated throughout the course.
During this course you will have the opportunity to hear from two guest experts in the heat treat field. An oxygen probe specialist will discuss the function of oxygen probes and the role they play in furnace atmosphere control. A second speaker will discuss the role of up-to-date thermocouple use in modern heat treating. This will give you a deeper look into the industry of heat treating and its importance to your industry.
Hands-on activities and demonstrations are integrated throughout the course to help guide you.

Heat Treat: Furnaces and Equipment

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. 
The tours will take place at a commercial heat treating facility and a provider of fabricated furnace parts, specializing in engineering and fabricating problem furnace parts for heat treaters all over the world. Key members of the companies will be available for question and answer sessions following the tours.

Practical Heat Treating

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.

Principles of Failure Analysis

This course provides the knowledge to bridge the gap between theory and practice of failure analysis. A very practical approach to failure analysis is provided for those who are new to the field or those who want an update.  It is also designed for technicians with the pre-requisites and those interested in understanding how knowledge of failure analysis can lead to better productivity.  Causes of fractures are explained with diagrams of stress application and distribution.  Many case histories of failures and their elimination are highlighted throughout the course.

Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgist

 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.
Your instructor will give you a comprehensive overview of technology, science and key concepts for the entire course. The sessions and discussion are very interactive and create an environment where questions are always welcome.

Aluminum and Its Alloys

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.

Titanium and Its Alloys

Titanium and its alloys are a versatile family of metals with applications in many industries. They have high modulus and strength-to-weight ratios, excellent corrosion resistance, and superior biocompatibility. This unique combination of physical, mechanical, and chemical properties make them attractive for aerospace, marine, industrial, and biomedical applications. This course provides an overview of the rapidly growing titanium industry.

Metallurgy of Steel for the Non-Metallurgist

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.

Heat Treat for the Non-Heat Treater

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.
