TWI Training offering two metallography courses in July

TWI Training is offering two courses in metallography this July.

The courses, 'Metallography Insight' and 'Field Metallography', are both suitable for technicians, lab managers, or engineers from non-materials disciplines who wish to develop an understanding of the processes and capabilities of metallography and field metallography as an analytical technique for quality control, inspection, and failure investigation.

The Metallography Insight course will teach attendees about:

  • Sample preparation
  • Microstructural characterisation
  • Metallography and fractography in failure analysis
  • Best practice for digital image capture, analysis and enhancement
  • Hardness and percent ferrite measurements
  • Requirements for documentation and reporting
  • Best practice for the efficient and safe running of laboratories, to maintain high throughput and quality. HSE requirements, lab layout and time saving sample preparation techniques

The Field Metallography course will include:

  • On-site sample preparation and replication using portable machines
  • Light microscopy, using portable microscopes/cameras, for microstructural characterisation of a wide range of material
  • Metallography and fractography in failure analysis
  • Best practice for field digital image capture, analysis and enhancement
  • Demonstration of portable machines for hardness and percent ferrite measurements
  • Requirements for documentation and reporting
  • Best practice for on-site metallography activities, including the prior knowledge/planning required, HSE requirements and time saving techniques

These courses will provide attendees with a knowledge of metallographic preparation, to improve efficiency in this area. Not only will the course provide practical knowledge to assist with the analysis of specimens and microstructures, but will also offer recording and reporting skills to support this.

With a combination of practical and theoretical information, this course will provide attendees with additional knowledge to help progress their careers and add to their knowledge and skills.
