Ashley Spencer, TWI’s metallography lecturer, was pleased to see yet another successful group of candidates complete a metallography insight course at TWI’s head office in the UK. The courses can be tailored to suit professionals of all experience levels and covers sample preparation, microscopy, on site replication, hardness testing and laboratory safety and are designed for metallographers, inspectors and laboratory managers of all experience levels.

"Ashley seems to know every trick of the trade! Really enjoyed the course."

"By the end of the first day we were already churning out some nice replicas and competing for the best image."

"Nice to have the course in a real metallography lab. It puts in perspective, which pieces of kit are really needed."


TWI runs regular courses in the UK, that include the practical skills required to produce good quality samples and techniques for analysis as well as an understanding of the equipment and consumables requirements of modern lab based and field metallography. Metallography courses have now also run in Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Malaysia and plans are in place to extend their global reach even further.

An added benefit to TWI’s course, is that if candidates are having any difficulties in sample preparation or understanding microstructures, they can bring samples to the training. TWI will then prepare them and provide answers to any queries which can involve technical discussions with the experienced metallurgists on-site.
