Heat Treatment: Principles and Practice - 1 Day Course

This course aims to provide a grounding in the heat treatment regimes applied to common industrial metals and relates their properties to the microstructural changes induced by the treatments.     

Topics covered are:

  • Basic Heat Treatments
  • Heat Treatment Process Variables
  • The Nature of Metals and Alloys
  • Heat Treatment Processes for Steels
  • Quenchants
  • Heat Treatment of Commercial Steels
  • Heat Treatment of Non-Ferrous Metals and Alloys
  • Chemical Heat Treatment of Steel

This Course:

  • Suits managers and technicians working in QA and  heat treatment of metals & metal products. It is also relevant to designers, specifiers & commercial people.
  • Aims to provide a grounding in the heat treatment regimes applied to common  industrial metals and relates their properties to the microstructural changes induced by the treatments.
  • Includes a comprehensive technical manual.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the important structure-property relationships in ferrous and non ferrous metals and how heat treatment is used to modify structure and properties
  • Appreciate the distinction between equilibrium phase, TTT and CCT diagrams (Fe-Fe3C phase diagram example)
  • Understand how cooling rate influences steel hardness and gain familiarity with heat treatment regimes for steels and the microstructures that are developed
  • Learn about hardenability and how quench severity, carbon content, grain size and other alloying elements influence it
  • Know the important categories of non ferrous alloys and the typical heat treatments used to develop the required microstructure/properties
  • Understand the basic principles of carburising/carbonitriding and nitriding/nitrocarburising and the effect these treatments have on surface structure and properties
  • Appreciate the different furnace types used in heat treatment and how they are monitored and controlled

 

The cost is £190 (+VAT) for members and £250 (+VAT) for non-members. Refreshments and lunch are included.
