On DemandEvaluation of grain size is a common industry method of determining properties of materials. While this process can be time consuming, use of specialized imaging software and hardware can significantly reduce the time required for evaluation.
On Demand This webinar begins with a brief trip down memory lane to marvel at early twentieth-century furnace technologies, commences with a look at the most recent changes made to the 2019 Edition of NFPA’s Ovens & Furnaces Standard, and ends with a crystal ball look at technologies that may unfold in the decade ahead.
On Demand Choosing and deploying the right sensor for Infrared temperature measurements on metal surfaces can be a complicated exercise. Most suppliers offer dozens of sensor options and some offer a range of IR cameras that could also be considered. It is easy to spend several thousand dollars on a sensor that does not measure accurately on a metal surface, but you can avoid this fate if you better understand four key technical issues.
On Demand Determining whether your furnace has a linear or non-linear leak can mean the difference between being back in production in two hours, or two days. It’s important to know the proper steps in determining your true leak rate to decrease unplanned down time as much as possible.
On Demand This lecture defines and illustrates with multiple examples to show how processing and heat treatment procedures alter microstructures. Examples are given of improper microstructures that caused component failures. Topics covered include: as-rolled microstructures, annealing, normalizing, isothermal transformations, continuous cooling transformations, under and over-austenitization, prior-austenite grain size control, solution annealing, surface treatments (carburizing, carbo-nitriding, nitriding), retained austenite, and problem microstructures
On Demand Heat treating is the controlled application of time, temperature, and atmosphere to produce a predictable change in the microstructure of a material. However, alloys are complex systems where the microstructure and properties depend on both the processing conditions and chemical composition.
On Demand Brazing is an essential, growing method for permanently joining different materials to create complex assemblies today. If these brazed assemblies are to survive in a wide variety of end-use service conditions, they must be brazed properly to begin. For proper brazing, a number of key steps must be thoroughly understood and taken into account by designers and production personnel.
On Demand Surface hardened helical gears must survive in harsh environments, so the heat treatment must produce the desired microstructure and material properties. Many companies use sample preparation and hardness testing to verify their heat treatment cycles. Find out how repeatable preparation methods provide reliable results for state-of-the-art quality control of surface hardened helical gears.
