 *LIMITED SEATS AVAILABLE*

This 1-day training covers everything from Fasteners, Material Selection & Quality, Stress-Raisers, Steel Processing Problems, Fatigue & Fracture Analysis thru to Material Certificates, Preventing Weld Failure, and even how to fix those things that have gone wrong already.

This training is produced specifically for engineers across industry:
Engineering Managers, Designers, Specifiers/Purchasers, Tradies & T/A’s, Maintenance Engineers, Welders, Apprentices/ Trainees, and Graduates.

It is packed with experience gained over 35 years of manufacturing and repairing metal products by machining, forging, casting, & welding, along with failure investigations across the whole engineering industry.

Training hand-book is packed full of vital information aimed at preventing common expensive mistakes.

These major topics are worked through, with full explanations, real case-studies, broken things, and demonstrations:

FAILURE OF GOOD FASTENERS

- Loose Bolts
- Torque & Extension
- Torque to Yield 

- Bolt Failure caused by Drunken Nuts.

WRONG MATERIAL / POOR-QUALITY MATERIAL.

- Ordering the Wrong Material.
- Being Supplied the Wrong Material.
- Poor Quality or Counterfeit Material.

STRESS RAISERS

- Cold-Work Stress
- Heating Damage
- Hard spots and cracking from thermal processes and friction
- Decarburisation 
- Sharp Section-change and Notch.
- Rough Surface Finish.

- Weld

PREVENTING WELDING FAILURE
