Leveraging Metals Science to Design Better Products
Are you looking for new ways to design better lower-cost components and fix product failure and quality problems faster? All while improving your productivity and adding to your engineering skills?
Designing and manufacturing products is complicated. So, why would anyone not take advantage of every tool available to make things easier?
One tool that many people are unaware of is metals science and engineering. Even though millions of components are made of metal, metals science and engineering are woefully underleveraged at many companies. The result is missed opportunities to:
- Reduce component cost by selecting lower cost alloys and selecting alloys that enable easier, less-expensive fabrication.
- Decrease risks to design schedules by selecting alloys that have the necessary reliability, so products pass tests the first time.
- Be more innovative by considering a wider range of alloys and processing options that offer better performance, better reliability, and lower cost.
- Fix quality problems faster by knowing how to get the information needed and what to do with the information.
Attend this webinar to learn how metals science and engineering can be leveraged to take advantage of these opportunities, while improving your productivity.

Design, manufacturing, and quality engineers and managers who want to learn new ways to design and manufacture successful products.
"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
