Component Design and Metallurgy Principles
Are these problems familiar?
- Failed product tests
- Expensive components
- Components that are difficult to fabricate
Metals engineering is often overlooked during component design. Instead, designers inappropriately re-use materials from previous products, select materials based on a subset of requirements, and select alloys that are difficult to fabricate into a component. As a result, designs are sub-optimum, with higher costs than necessary, difficult to fabricate components, and product testing failures.
The main reason metals engineering for component design is overlooked is lack of knowledge about physical metallurgy and how metals can be engineered.
During this webinar you will 1) learn about component design considerations to optimize component form and alloy and 2) gain insight into physical metallurgy and how metals can be engineered. The knowledge you will gain will improve your ability to design products that meet performance, reliability, and total cost requirements, and help keep projects on schedule.
- Presenter: Michael Pfeifer, Ph.D., P.E.
- Date: Tuesday, June 16
- Time: 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. central time
- Component design considerations to optimize component form and alloy.
- How metal properties depend on metal composition, microscopic structure, and manufacturing processes.
- Microscopic structures present in metals and their effects on metal strength
- Metallurgical changes that result from alloying, cold working, and heat treating, and the effects of these changes on metal strength.

"A group of us took several courses (Principles of Metallurgy, Metallurgy of Steel, Corrosion of Metals) to become more knowledgeable about the science of metals to avoid problems. For me, the biggest impact of the training was on working with suppliers. I feel more confident asking questions and I now know the suppliers which know their stuff and which ones don’t. And it was great being able to get the training when it was convenient for me."Sam Bloodgood, VP Process Improvement, Hydraforce, Inc.
"I oversee several operations, including steel heat treating and laser welding. However, my background was in the construction materials industry. Principles of Metallurgy gave me the knowledge to have meaningful discussions with my engineers and be able to ask them better questions."Tom Parkman, Plant Manager, Simonds International.
“Principles of Metallurgy exceeded my expectations. The content was straightforward enough not to be burdensome, yet deep enough to provide a practical review of fundamental principles. I recommend this course to any engineer or technical person who has been out of school and working in industry for several years, but not necessarily having been focused on metallurgy.”Andy Jacobs, Staff Engineer, DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc.
“The Principles of Metallurgy course is broke up into convenient length modules that can be fit into the busiest schedule. The course is a good review for engineers who had a materials class ten or more years ago.”Paul Flury B/E Aerospace
“This is an excellent course (Metallurgy of Steel Heat Treating) for learning basic heat treating practices. The course introduces and covers a broad range of processes. I would recommend it for anyone in the steel business.”Jim Marks, Magellan Corporation
“This course has given me more confidence in my job and given me a better understanding of some of the heat treatments used in the business.”Mark Winter, Abbey Forged Products
