Buehler, an ITW Company and a global manufacturer of metallographic equipment and consumables, is presenting a complimentary webinar on May 27th or 28th (depending on your time zone) for novices to experts: “Fastener Metallography – Guidelines to Quality Metallurgical Analysis.”
Fasteners are the small but important components found in a vast range of applications. They are widely used in automotive, aerospace, appliances (white goods), and in construction projects such as bridges, among others. These components are important in manufactured products because the majority of components employ fastening technology during assembly to maintain and guarantee product integrity over its service lifetime.
This webinar will explore metallurgical investigation of fastener components and related materials by highlighting preparation guidelines for the stages of fastener production process. Buehler experts will share the best practices to adopt, while following strict ASTM and/or ISO standards for fastener evaluation due to their safety critical use in aerospace, automotive, and other related industries.
Fasteners may be manufactured in small private shops or large industrial factories and their fabrication includes; cold or hot forming of incoming raw material (wires), thread making (involving a rolling or machining process), heat treating, and application of coatings for corrosion protection. They may be manufactured from corrosion-resistant steels, alloyed steels, titanium, or aluminum. How they are made is influenced by the diversity of fastener specifications and capabilities.
Buehler’s Fastener Metallography webinar is will be of interest to the metallurgical technicians, engineers and others who carry out testing of fastener components and related materials as part of the quality control or inspection during production of the desired final product.
The Fastener Metallography webinar topics covered will include:
- Fasteners and their applications
- Metallographic preparation challenges
- Requirements for routine or detailed evaluation
- Defects assessments and Microstructural evaluation
- Decarburization assessment
- Hardness conformity checks
- Rivet metallography
The webinar is presented in English in these time zones:
- Wednesday, May 27, 2020 it will be live in the United Kingdom and Asia time zones.
- Thursday, May 28,2020 it will be presented live in the United States central time zone.
Attendees will receive a certificate of participation right after the Webinar.
