This course aims to educate those who have little or no prior experience in metallurgy to a point where they are familiar with the materials used in the industry and have the knowledge to tackle issues that might arise. The course will follow the outline below:
- Metallurgical terms and definitions (e.g. dislocations, grains, phases etc.).
- Material properties required of spring materials
- Different types of materials used in the spring industry (e.g. patent drawn carbon steel, stainless steel etc.) and the various forms the materials can take (cold drawn, oil-hardened etc.).
- What affect typical processes used in the spring industry (e.g. prestressing, heat treatment etc.) can have on the material and why they are beneficial.
- Q&A where attendees can have any specific questions they have on spring materials answered.
Who is this course for?
This course is for anyone who has little to no previous experience in metallurgy or material science in general. We feel that everyone will get something out of this course, even those with a good background in materials science, particularly if your knowledge is in sectors outside the spring industry.
