Fastener Metallography I & II

Open image in new window

Buehler, Lake Bluff, IL

These fast paced courses cover all aspects of metallographic preparation of common fastener materials for commercial and aerospace applications. Part I (June 13 and 14) focuses on proper sample preparation to reveal the true microstructure. Special considerations relating to common fastener materials, geometries, and manufacturing are covered (1.5 CEUs). Part II (June 15 and 16) focuses on practical interpretation of microstructures for common fastener materials (commercial and aerospace) and imperfections due to incoming material and manufacturing processes. Microhardness testing to verify case depth is discussed. Grain size determination and quantitative measurements are practiced. Past participants of this class have mentioned that the class helped in passing a quality audit. Students receive a notebook with images of structures and imperfections for reference (1.5 CEUs).
