Principles of Metallurgy

 
$109

Are you looking for new ways to:

  • Design better, lower-cost components?
  • Fix quality problems faster?
  • Identify sub-par suppliers faster?

Understanding metallurgy is critical for designing low-cost components, selecting capable suppliers, and quickly solving quality problems. However, many people haven’t had much metallurgy training and don’t have a good understanding of metals science.

In this webinar you will learn about metallurgical factors that influence metal properties and metallurgical reasons of how alloying, heat treatment, and cold working affect metal strength.

The concepts covered are applicable to all metals. Examples for steel and aluminum will be presented.

See our 2021 webinar schedule

What you will learn

The topics that will be covered are:

  • The relationship between a metal’s properties and its composition, microscopic structure, and the manufacturing processes used to fabricate the metal
  • Microscopic structures present in metals
  • How the microscopic structures and metal composition influence metal strength
  • Metallurgical changes that result from alloying, cold working, and heat treating, and the effects of these changes on metal strength.

A pdf document of the webinar slides will be emailed to webinar registrants before the webinar.  You will also have 14-days access to a recording of the webinar.

Target Audience

Design engineers, manufacturing engineers, quality engineers, sourcing, sales. This webinar is intended for people who want an introduction to metallurgy or want to refresh what they learned years ago in a college course. The information will provide insights into:

  • How metals can be engineered to get the properties needed for metal components.
  • The questions and considerations when trying to fix quality problems and assessing suppliers.

  • "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.”
