April 29 – 30, 2015 : Casting Defect Analysis #26-15
In order to determine the true root cause of a casting defect and select the proper corrective action, a systematic evaluation method must be applied. The intention of this course is for participants to become proficient in applying a ten step procedure that will enable them to analyze and reduce metalcasting defects by correctly identifying defects and their root causes, and determining appropriate corrective actions. This course is applicable to sand molding processes (green, nobake, coldbox, shell).
May 5 – 6, 2015 : Copper Metallurgy 201 #27-15
Knowledge of physical metallurgy of copper alloys is necessary for the foundry metallurgists to effectively operate. This knowledge includes melt treatment, effects of alloy additions on physical and mechanical properties, solidification, heat treatment and final properties. The correlations between the processing technology, the defects and properties are an important feature for the foundry metallurgist as well as environmental issues. Copper Metallurgy 201 will address these topics to improve the metallurgical skills of the casting personnel.
