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 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

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.
