New online training: Heat Treatment of Gear Steels.

Thanks to the support of BGA Members and the hard work of our BGA training partners we are delighted to expand our online training further for 2021 with the introduction of our Virtual Heat Treatment of Gear Steels seminars.

Our move into the virtual training world has made our courses more accessible and we are delighted that more than 1000 delegates have already attend training in 2021.

The continued support of BGA Members has meant that we can offer all of our online training completely free of charge to member companies. If you are not a BGA Member please click herefor details of how to join the association.

Date: 13th, 20th & 27th October - 10am-12pm Tutor: Philip Clarke Venue: Online Fee: BGA Member Free / Non Member £225*

This online course is held over 3 sessions and is fully interactive with detailed examples and plenty of time for questions and discussion.

Please note you will need to attend all 3 sessions to complete the training.

Seminar Programme

Philip Clarke will describe the heat treatment of gear steels assuming minimal prior knowledge. After an introduction to the basic metallurgical concepts and key principles, the enhancement of surface properties by carburising and induction hardening will be explained. The properties imparted by, and the consequences and problems of the chosen process with reference to material selection, distortion and growth will be covered with the aid of case histories.

The Seminar will cover:

  • Introduction to steel heat treatment – metallurgical principles; hardening & tempering

  • Carburising

  • Introduction to nitriding, nitro-carburising & other surface treatments

  • Laser & Electron Beam Hardening

  • Induction & flame hardening

  • Problem solving – low/high hardness; case-depth

  • Controlling distortion
