Steel Heat Treating Webinar

    About the Course

    Join Michael Pfeifer, Ph.D., P.E. from 2:00 - 3:00 pm Eastern time for this webinar.

    Annealing, normalizing, and through hardening heat treatments are used to obtain specific strength and hardness. Understanding the effects of the process conditions of these heat treatments is important to get the strength and hardness you need in your steel.

    This webinar teaches about the effects of heat treating process conditions and alloy composition on carbon steel microstructure and the resulting strength and hardness. Also, you'll learn about the iron-carbon phase diagram, steel hardenability, and the effects of alloy composition on hardenability.

    With the knowledge you'll gain from this webinar you'll improve your ability to have more meaningful discussions with suppliers, evaluate suppliers, and solve quality problems faster.


    What You'll Learn

    The following topics will be discussed:

    • Iron-carbon phase diagram
    • Annealing, normalizing, and through hardening processes and how they are used to modify the microstructure of steels to obtain specific strength and hardness.
    • Effects of heat treating process parameters and steel composition on steel microstructure and strength.
    • Effects of tempering temperature and time on steel microstructure, strength, and hardness.
    • Hardenability and effects of alloy composition on hardenability.


    Target Audience

    Design engineers, manufacturing engineers, quality engineers, sourcing specialists.


    Registering for the Webinar

    The fee is $99 per person. After registering you will receive an email within a few hours with information about how to access the webinar. In addition to the webinar, you'll get 7-day access to a recording of the webinar.
