TWI develop essential metallography training to ensure best practice in industryUnderstanding the relationship between the properties and microstructures of metallic materials plays an extremely important part in quality control, failure investigation and development of new materials and alloys. Many properties of metallic materials like corrosion resistance, yield strength, hardness, elongation, conductivity and tensile strength are closely related to the microstructure.

As such, microstructure examination is an extremely important test method that can be used to determine the possible failure mode of a component, detect fabrication defects and confirm correct material selection.

Excellence in this discipline is central to the competencies that have enabled TWI to work with major industry sectors including oil & gas, power and aerospace over many years.

Recognising the skills' gaps in best practice in the metallography discipline, TWI has developed two new training courses to address these needs; Laboratory Based Metallography (3 days) and On-site Non-destructive Metallography and Replication (2 days).

The two courses can be attended either separately or as a single 5 day combined package, Practical Laboratory and Field Metallography Combined Package.

The courses include the theory and practical skills required to produce good quality samples and techniques for analysis and an understanding of the equipment and consumables' requirements of modern lab-based and field metallography.
Anyone who is considering setting up a metallographic capability or operating existing facilities will also find these courses essential in gaining the required knowledge in lab and field best practice.
