Nonferrous Metals Bundle PD281944

PD281944

Newly Released!

Nonferrous materials are malleable, are non-magnetic, and have no iron content which gives them higher resistance to rust and corrosion. The following five on-demand courses are included in the Nonferrous Metals bundle.  Each course is approximately one-hour in duration. See Topics/Outline for additional details.

Introduction to Physical Properties 
This course provides an an overview of manufacturing materials and their physical properties, including thermal, electrical, and magnetic properties and introduces volumetric characteristics, such as mass, weight, and density.

Introduction to Mechanical Properties 
This course provides a thorough introduction to key mechanical properties, such as tensile strength, hardness, ductility, and impact resistance and discusses how shear, compression, and tensile stress impact a material's properties.

Introduction to Metals
This course provides an overview of popular ferrous and nonferrous metals and their properties and introduces the three types of metal crystal structures, how grains develop in metal, the purpose of heat treating, and how these aspects impact a material's characteristics.

Nonferrous Metals
This course provides an overview of the properties and uses of common nonferrous metals, including aluminum, copper, magnesium, nickel, lead, and titanium. It also discusses how refractory metals and how nonferrous metals are classified in the Unified Numbering System (UNS).

Exotic Alloys
This course provides an introduction to the properties and applications of superalloys and exotic metal alloys. You will learn about iron-based, nickel-based, and cobalt-based superalloys, as well as tungsten, vanadium, tantalum, and other exotic metals. 

Courses listed above are available only as part of a TooliingU bundle.  Custom bundles of any five or more ToolingU courses are available upon request as a Corporate Learning Solution.

Introduction to Physical Properties 
Physical properties determine how a material will react to moisture, heat, electricity, and other factors. In order to choose the best tooling or raw material for an application, manufacturers must understand the physical properties of key metals, plastics, and other materials. Intro to Physical Properties provides an overview of manufacturing materials and their physical properties, including thermal, electrical, and magnetic properties. This course also introduces you to volumetric characteristics, such as mass, weight, and density. After taking this course, you will be able to identify and describe key physical properties and their value in a manufacturing setting.

Introduction to Mechanical Properties 
To make quality products, manufacturers must anticipate how a material responds to shaping and cutting forces and understand how that material will ultimately function once it reaches the customer. Evaluating a material's mechanical and physical properties is the first step to choosing reliable tooling and processing methods. Intro to Mechanical Properties provides a thorough introduction to key mechanical properties, such as tensile strength, hardness, ductility, and impact resistance. The course discusses how shear, compression, and tensile stress impact a material's properties, how force is shown on a stress-strain graph, and common methods manufacturers use to test a material's strength. After taking Intro to Mechanical Properties, you will know more about hardness, ductility, and strength, what materials exhibit these characteristics, and common methods a facility might use to test these qualities. 

Introduction to Metals
Steel, aluminum, titanium, and other metals have a wide range of commercial and advanced applications, including structural shapes, machine components, and medical devices. To choose the best material for a project, manufacturers must first understand how different metals respond to heat, pressure, electricity, chemical exposure, and weather. Intro to Metals provides an overview of popular ferrous and nonferrous metals and their properties. This course introduces you to the three types of metal crystal structures, how grains develop in metal, the purpose of heat treating, and how these aspects impact a material's characteristics. Upon completion, you will know how various metals function in different environments, making them better equipped to select materials and tooling.

Nonferrous Metals
Selecting the best alloy for an application begins with understanding each metal's properties and interactions. nonferrous metals, although not as widely used as steel, are still valued as essential alloying elements or for advanced applications. This course provides an overview of the properties and uses of common nonferrous metals, including aluminum, copper, magnesium, nickel, lead, and titanium. This class also discusses how refractory metals and how nonferrous metals are classified in the Unified Numbering System (UNS). After completing the course, new or practicing manufacturers will be able to identify various nonferrous metals, their characteristics, and their uses.

Exotic Alloys
Superalloys and exotic metals have unique properties for specialized applications. Complex, proprietary superalloys are commonly used in aerospace and petrochemical applications, while exotic metals are often used as alloying elements to enhance the properties of a base metal. This course provides an introduction to the properties and applications of superalloys and exotic metal alloys. In this course, you will learn about iron-based, nickel-based, and cobalt-based superalloys, as well as tungsten, vanadium, tantalum, and other exotic metals. Upon completion, you will be able to identify prominent superalloys and exotic metals and describe their uses.
