Although there have been tremendous advances in aerospace coatings over the years, the preparation and evaluation have not followed suit especially when met labs are locked in to specific (old fashioned) methodology.
With the development of new alloys for coatings, it is even more important than ever to understand how something as generic as sample preparation can affect the evaluation of a coating.
Im Basiskurs werden die grundlegenden Abläufe der metallografischen Probenpräparation vermittelt. In kleineren Arbeitsgruppen werden die wichtigsten Arbeitsabläufe eines Materialografielabors unter Anleitung des Applikationsteams nachgestellt und erläutert. Dazu zählen das Trennen, Warm- und Kalteinbetten, die mechanische und elektrolytische Präparation, Lichtmikroskopie und Härteprüfung. Für den Basiskurs wird das Probenmaterial (einige Eisen- und NE-Metalle) seitens der Struers GmbH gestellt. Die Präparation eigener Proben ist im Basiskurs nur bedingt möglich. Sie können Ihr Probenmaterial mitbringen und vor Ort wird die Möglichkeit der Präparation diskutiert. Alternativ dazu können Sie fertig präparierte Schliffe mitbringen und wir geben Tipps und Hinweise zur Verbesserung der Schliffqualität, falls erforderlich.

The professional materialographer (United Kingdom)
The Professional Materialographer is a 3-day intensive course in materialography, combining theory, practical work and individual work on own samples. The third day is dedicated to preparation of participants’ own samples. This is of particular value if you are experiencing issues with your preparation process or if you think the used method could be optimized.
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) 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.
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 own samples in a state of the art lab is a very efficient way for experienced users to raise their level of competence.
User days is a specific training course focusing on troubleshooting, new knowledge and peer to peer networking.
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.

Don’t make do with what we say! Look for the truth in the experiences of the people who use our equipment and knowledge. We asked a few of our loyal customers to tell us what they think is most important about Struers.
We have always experienced extremely repeatable and consistent, high-quality results. The consistency and reliability of our Struers cutting machines was instrumental in our decision to install a similar Struers system in our plant in Indonesia.
