Copper

Modules

Copper Casting Alloys

The Unified Numbering System (UNS) of copper is explored in this module; the different types of copper alloys and the different alloying elements in copper castings are identified. By the end of this module, you will be able to explain the UNS for copper and discuss the role of alloying elements in copper castings. (0.1 CEU)

ACCESS THIS MODULE
Copper Casting Applications

This module explores the numerous mechanical and physical properties of copper alloys; the details of the different copper families; and use that information to choose the specific copper alloy for three real-world examples. By the end of this module, you will be able to describe the principle properties of copper and its uses and describe and identify copper alloys suited to specific applications. (0.1 CEU)

ACCESS THIS MODULE
Copper Casting Defects: Shrinkage

In this module, shrinkage porosity is defined and various shrinkage porosity characteristics and classifications will be identified (e.g., size, distribution, location, and performance). By the end of this module, you will be able to define macro and micro porosity shrinkage copper casting defects and identify two control methods to reduce those defects. (0.1 CEU)

ACCESS THIS MODULE
Copper Casting Production

This module explores the different melting and molding methods used in copper metalcasting facilities. Copper safety practices are also presented. By the end of this module, you will be able to identify common melting methods and identify common molding methods for copper alloys. (0.1 CEU)

ACCESS THIS MODULE
Copper Casting Defects: Gating

This module focuses on gating-specific defects that occur in copper castings. This module also defines what a gating system is and common terms related to gating. Basic principles of solidification and shrinkage are also discussed. By the end of this module, you will be able to review the 10-Step Procedure used to analyze casting defects, identify copper casting gating defects, and identify gating changes that can reduce these defects. (0.1 CEU)
