Lake Bluff, IL... Buehler is offering Etching and Microstructure Analysis of Titanium Alloys on, June 30, 2021 at 12:00pm CST. Register here: webinar registration page. This presentation will set the foundation and focus on microstructure analysis and etching for titanium alloys. The titanium alloys are widely used in aerospace, medical devices, military applications, turbines, automotive, electronics and other industries.
Titanium can be heat treated to enhance its properties through stress relief, solution heat treatments, aging or annealing. These are typically designed to improve mechanical properties such as ductility and toughness as well as machinability and structural stability. Metallurgists in manufacturing, heat treat facilities and research analyze titanium microstructures to ensure material quality, most often through etching. Etching can remove any deformed layer introduced during grinding and polishing of the material through sample preparation and is also used to highlight microstructural features. This webinar covers how to ideally etch titanium alloys to reveal microstructure most effectively in a wide variety of titanium alloys.
George Vander Voort, renowned physical metallurgist and an exclusive consultant to Buehler will deliver this webinar. He has served as Buehler’s Director of Research and Technology for over a decade. Vander Voort has over 50 years of experience is a worldwide leading expert in microstructural analysis, interpretation and measurement.
The “Titanium Alloys” webinar will cover the core principles of etching for microstructural analysis in a metallographic setting and including:
