Suitable for:
This course teaches the underlying theories and principles of on-site metallography, before moving on to deliver a practical workshop. Candidates will learn essential practical skills from experts in the field of metallography, using industry-leading equipment, techniques, and consumables.

This course is ideally suited to technicians, lab managers and engineers from non-materials engineering disciplines who want to develop an in-depth understanding of the processes and capabilities of field metallography as an analytical technique for quality control, inspection, and failure investigation.

Course Content:
  • Non-destructive replica preparation, using various preparation techniques
  • Preparation of replicas of fracture surfaces, corroded components, and welded joints for observation of fracture morphology, corrosion depth and geometric features
  • Demonstration of portable machines/devices for hardness and percent ferrite measurements


Course Objectives:
  • To gain a wide appreciation of the processes involved in best practice preparation of metallographic, fractographic and geometric replicas
  • To understand the equipment and consumables requirements for field metallography
  • To understand the tools that can be used to analyse specimens and microstructures
    Effective recording and reporting

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
There are no formal entry requirements although a technical background and some knowledge of metals and alloys would be an advantage.
