Metallurgy Training

Beta has joined forces with the University of Sheffield’s AMRC Training Centre to design and deliver a range of advanced metallurgy courses.

A series of one-day courses, delivered by Beta Metallurgy experts, will be offered on selected dates throughout 2018. They are offered as part of the AMRC Training Centre’s Continuous Professional Development programme of courses. The training can also be tailored and delivered as bespoke courses to individual clients.

The four courses on offer during 2018, with downloadable PDF links are as follows:

Alloying Elements in Steels – 22/02/2018

To provide an in-depth understanding of the effects of the different alloying elements found in steels. This will cover the effects on processing, properties and heat treatment. The content can be tailored to concentrate on specific alloying additions, if required.

Microalloyed Steels – 20/03/2018

To provide a detailed understanding of the fundamental metallurgy, alloy design, processing, properties and applications of microalloyed steels.

Steels for the Automotive Industry – 26/06/2018

The automotive sector has been a major driver in the development of new steel types over the past 40 years. The course aims to familiarise attendees with the types of steels used in modern automobiles covering both the body and the power train. The compositions, properties and processing of these steels will be described.

Understanding Mechanical Test Data for Metals – 14/03/2018

This course takes attendees beyond a simple knowledge of the standard test techniques. It discusses factors which can affect the values measured and how the mechanical test data can be used to determine fitness-for-purpose in specific applications. The concept of uncertainty in test values and how it can be estimated is also discussed.

The cost for each one-day course is £450 + VAT.
