All ferrous and non-ferrous metals have unique characteristics making their machining unique and individual. This course will teach the basic theory of metals and their characteristics from their differences in hardness, brittleness and durability, resistance to corrosion, and machinability and welding. Basic understanding of metallurgy is essential if machinists and welders are to employ the correct techniques and operational sequences to produce quality parts and products efficiently and effectively. This CE course mirrors credit MFG: 190. Tuition includes book.
