Metallurgy pervades the full gamut of engineering product design and processes. It is the basis from which optimum properties for a given design are determined. Component properties must be adequate to ensure the desired product life in complex environments involving wear, corrosion, and elevated temperatures. In the present day of high degree of Quality with low degree of Rejection of products, sound knowledge of Metallurgy is of paramount importance for engineers in all functions related to manufacturing. This will allow optimum selection of materials in order to achieve a product first time right as well as maintaining the desired quality of the product throughout its life cycle.
Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organising 2 day programme on Applied Metallurgy for Engineering Industry on 26-27 Sept 2019 at Pune. The concepts of metallurgy will be explained with Analytical & Quantitative approach rather than based on thumb rules.
Analytical way of Selecting materials based on functional needs
• Understanding of Basic metallurgy- Crystal structure, phase transformation, Iron carbondiagram, TTT diagram
• Concept of Hardenability
• Classification of steel and importance of alloying elements.
• Concept of Surface hardening – Effective Case Depth (ECD) & Total Case Depth (TCD).
• Selection of different case hardening procedure as required by the component to satisfy design requirement.
• Consideration of Metallurgical aspects of different on ferrous alloys (Brass, Bronze etc)
Understanding of different heat-treatment processes.
• Metallurgical aspects of Machinability
• Design rules for obtaining successful Cast Iron components from foundry
• Overall concept of Design for Manufacturing applicable in Casting & Heat-treatment
• Defects in Heat Treatment and Castings
• Casting Design as influenced by foundry practices
• The quality requirement of raw materials for defect less forgings
• Different forging defects- causes & remedies.
• Discussion on case studies from user industries.
After undergoing the programme, the participants will be able to learn about -
1.How to select material based on functional needs
2.Heat treatment processes with application examples
3.Metallurgical aspects of forged components
4.Metallurgical aspects of cast parts
