Anwendertreffen Materialografie

Der Schwerpunkt dieses Kurses liegt auf der praktischen Arbeit mit eigenem Probenmaterial. Sie haben die Möglichkeit, unter Anleitung des Struers-Applikationsteams aktiv an eigenen Proben zu arbeiten. Die Veranstaltung soll metallografisch erfahrenen Anwendern zur Vertiefung präparationstechnischer Fragestellungen dienen, ist aber auch für Anfänger auf dem Gebiet der materialografischen Probenpräparation geeignet. Die Proben werden für licht- und elektronenoptische Oberflächenuntersuchungen nach den gängigen Verfahren (Trennen, Einbetten, Schleifen und Polieren, elektrolytische Präparationstechniken) vorbereitet. Dazu arbeiten Sie an den modernen Struers Präparationsgeräten.

Courses in materialographic sample preparation

For more than 70 years, Struers has been one of the leading actors within materialographic sample preparation. By virtue of our position as a leading provider of materialographic preparation solutions, we have assembled an outstanding wealth of knowledge and experience, which we share via our materialographic sample preparation courses.

The Professional Materialographer TPM

The Professional Materialographer (TPM)

The Professional Materialographer (TPM) is an intensive course combining theoretical training, practical exercises, and hands-on training at one of Struers’ worldwide lab facilities. You can choose a course in which Struers makes samples available, or you can choose a course in which you can bring with you and prepare your own material. In both cases you will be an active part of the course from the beginning to the end, through the entire preparation process: Cutting, mounting, grinding, polishing, and etching.

User days

User days

Mastering materialography includes theoretical knowledge and, to a large extent also, the hands-on skills that transfer know-how into materialographic results. Working hands-on with your own samples in a state-of-the-art lab is a very efficient way for experienced users to raise their level of expertise.

User days is a specific training course focusing on troubleshooting, new knowledge, and peer to peer networking.

Hardness Testing

Hardness Testing Courses

Materialography and hardness testing are closely related disciplines in material testing. Struers offers a course focused on hardness testing with an initial theoretical introduction to the most common indentation hardness techniques: Vickers, Rockwell, Brinell, and Knoop. You will also learn how to consider requirements for surface preparation of your sample. In addition to surface preparation, we discuss other parameters such as influence of the material, illumination, calibration, etc. that affect the hardness test.
