Mechanics for Heat Treatment


Mechanics for Heat Treatment: Aluminum Practices

This module will identify why aluminum metalcasting facilities heat treat castings. This module will look at the various operational costs, furnace maintenance, how to select a heat treatment furnace, and how to selection various quenching media at a facility. By the end of this module, you will be able to identify direct costs in aluminum heat treating, explain the impact of maintenance on operating cost, describe the characteristics of various furnaces and ovens, explain the purpose of rigidity in heat treatment basket design, state the different quenching media, and describe the different types of quenching. (0.1 CEU)

Mechanics for Heat Treatment: Aluminum Processes

This module will address the effects of temperature on aluminum parts in the treatment process, the variables and problems that arise in the daily operations of heat treating aluminum parts, and the operational issues related to installing and using heat treating equipment. By the end of this module, you will be able to explain good rack loading procedures, explain the solution heat treating process, describe residual stresses and ways to mitigate them, describe straightening methods, and explain furnace installation issues.
