TWI Ltd, headquartered in Great Abington, Cambridge, UK, will be holding two courses on metallography at its facility in Cambridge, UK, this October. The first course, ‘Metallography Insight’, will take place from October 9–10, and the second, ‘Field Metallography’, will be held on October 11.

According to TWI, both of the courses are suitable for technicians, lab managers, or engineers from non-materials disciplines who wish to develop an understanding of the processes and capabilities of metallography and field metallography as an analytical technique for quality control, inspection and failure investigation. 

Through a combination of practical and theoretical information, these courses will provide attendees with additional knowledge to help progress their careers and expand their knowledge and skills. 

The ‘Metallography Insight’ course will include:

  • Sample preparation
  • Microstructural characterisation
  • Metallography and fractography in failure analysis
  • Best practice for digital image capture, analysis and enhancement 
  • Hardness and percent ferrite measurements
  • Requirements for documentation and reporting
  • Best practice for the efficient and safe running of laboratories, to maintain high throughput and quality. HSE requirements, lab layout and time saving sample preparation techniques

The ‘Field Metallography’ course will include:

  • On-site sample preparation and replication using portable machines
  • Light microscopy, using portable microscopes/cameras, for microstructural characterisation of a wide range of materials
  • Metallography and fractography in failure analysis
  • Best practice of field digital image capture, analysis and enhancement
  • Demonstration of portable machines for hardness and percent ferrite measurements
  • Requirements for documentation and reporting
  • Best practice for on-site metallography activities, including the prior knowledge/planning required, HSE requirements and time saving techniques

The full programme and registration information is available via the company’s website.
