Is it for me?

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.

What will I learn?

  • 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

What will I leave with?

By the end of the course, you should be able to:

  • Gain a wide appreciation of the processes involved in best practice preparation of metallographic, fractographic and geometric replicas
  • Understand the equipment and consumables requirements for field metallography
  • Understand the tools that can be used to analyse specimens and microstructures
  • Effectively record and report
