In-depth knowledge of the mechanisms and material science processes involved in bainitizing. The aim of this seminar is not only to impart basic knowledge of materials technology, but also to demonstrate process engineering, quality assurance and application by means of component examples, starting with the fundamentals.
Increasing demands on energy efficiency and the reduction of emissions are leading to constant power compression and higher stress on components in automotive and mechanical engineering. Bainitizing has gained enormous importance as an alternative to conventional heat treatment in recent years and is being used for more and more high-strength components. In particular, it offers a number of technological advantages, such as high toughness combined with high hardness, low distortion and usually a favorable component residual stress state, which are far from being achieved by conventional martensitic hardening. Innovations in process control and process monitoring have additionally made bainitizing more economical. This opens up new applications and possibilities.
In order to fully exploit the potential of this hardening process, in-depth knowledge of the mechanisms and material science processes involved is necessary. The aim of this seminar is not only to impart basic materials engineering knowledge, but also to demonstrate process engineering, quality assurance and application by means of component examples, starting with the fundamentals. Finally, with the help of practical demonstrations in the hardening shop and metallography, the participants will get to know the process sequence as well as the quality assurance possibilities in practice.
