I’m not an engineer or metallurgist – is this program too advanced for me?
No- this program is appropriate for anyone in the fastener industry or OEM’s who can read and understand specifications. We will not be diving deep into the chemistry or metallurgy behind the HE process. We will focus on the practical aspects of HE prevention, detection and testing. One of our presenters Salim Brahimi, is a researcher who is on the cutting edge of HE research, so we will have the knowledge available. Salim also leads a program that does goes deeper into the metallurgical and failure analysis aspects of HE. This program is offered through the Fastener Training Institute and Industrial Fasteners Institute. It takes place in Chicago on March 16 and 17, 2016.
