Staying updated on fastener training is important in staying competitive. Seminars for Engineers is offering two seminars that will educate engineers and technical personnel. These two seminars will train on the complexities of mechanical joining with fasteners as well as why and how fasteners are heat treated and plated or coated.

Fastening Technology & Bolted/Screwed Joint Design
When: August 22-23, 2017
Where: Detroit, Michigan Courtyard Detroit Metro Airport  

Fundamentals of Heat Treating and Plating Fasteners and Other Small Components    
When: New Date Coming Soon
Where: Detroit, Michigan Courtyard Detroit Metro Airport

About Seminar for Engineers:

Founded in 2003, Seminars for Engineers LLC provides the global industrial engineering community access to relevant, often elusive technical expertise. Through comprehensive in-person training courses, the company’s experienced instructors share real world experience and practical problem solving techniques for manufacturing professionals. Presented in both public venues and customized, private company sessions, current offerings include Packaging and Labeling, Web Handling and Converting, Fastener Design, Plastic Molding and Composite Materials Testing. Seminars for Engineers is known worldwide as a quality source for the training and continuing education of today’s industrial engineering workforce.

Fastening Technology & Bolted/Screwed Joint DesignBengt Blendulf photo

Instructor Bengt Blendulf, President/principal lecturer of EduPro US, Inc., this course is designed for mechanical joining with fasteners. Insufficient guidelines and outdated information are not preparing engineers for the real design challenges. As a result, there are costly over-designs and failures that can cause setbacks. The regulations on these safety critical design elements has brought about a new focus on fasteners. This seminar includes newer techniques and guidelines from both international and domestic engineering societies and research groups to provide attendees with training they can use today. 

About the Seminar

This two-day seminar was developed to give engineers and other technical personnel current specifications for, and a better understanding of, the complexities of mechanical joining with fasteners. Insufficient guidelines and outdated information are not adequately equipping engineers for real life design challenges. This can lead to catastrophic failures or costly over-designs. The Federal regulations (Fastener Quality Act) on these often safety critical design elements has caused a renewed focus on the proper use of fasteners. This seminar incorporates the most recent techniques and guidelines from both international and domestic engineering societies and research groups and provides attendees with immediately applicable knowledge.

Who Should Attend

Since most manufactured products involve the use of fasteners for assembly, this seminar is very beneficial to professionals working on design and development, maintenance, and procurement of fasteners and bolted interfaces. If you are involved in design engineering, manufacturing and assembly, standardization, testing, quality control, or otherwise involved with technical aspects of fasteners, this course is designed especially for you.

Most Beneficial To:

  • Professionals involved in design engineering.
  • Professionals in manufacturing and assembly.
  • Professionals involved in technical aspects.
  • Professionals involved in fastener maintenance. 
  • Professionals involved in procurement of fasteners and bolted interfaces.

Instructor Laurence Claus, this seminar will help educate on why and how fasteners and other similar items are heat treated. In great detail, the seminar will explore the fundamental metallurgical transformations and principals that result in the mechanical changes desired by the fastener designer or engineer. Each process will be explored and include how control points can remain in control as well as what to expect if something goes wrong. 

Day two of the seminar will explore plating and coating options favored by some of the biggest fastener consuming industries. Additionally, the seminar will explore application processes, significant control points, how they impact fastener performance and common pitfalls and errors. Attendees will also gain knowledge on how plating and coating are evolving with regards to performance and environmental friendliness. 

About the Seminar

This two-day seminar was developed for engineers and technical personnel to gain a high level, broad understanding of why and how fasteners and other similar items are heat treated and plated or coated. The demands on today’s fasteners are ever increasing and these two process steps play a critical role in how well the fastener will perform its intended function.

 This seminar will begin by exploring the fundamental metallurgical transformations and principles that yield the mechanical changes desired by the fastener designer or engineer.  Each process will be examined in greater detail to understand how the process achieves these underlying principals and what practical effects it has on the fastener. Control points will be investigated to gain an understanding of, not only how the process remains in control, but also how it can go wrong and the consequences when it does.

Day two will explore platings and coatings. There are a multitude of good options today and this seminar shall look at those favored by large fastener consuming industries. In addition to gaining an understanding of the plating or coating system, this seminar shall explore the application processes, significant control points, how they impact fastener performance and common pitfalls and errors.  Unlike most of the processes utilized in manufacturing fasteners which have changed little in recent years, this seminar shall explore how the plating and coating processes and options are evolving rapidly to address ever increasing demands for performance and friendliness to the environment.

Who Should Attend

Fasteners are used extensively in every industry. Since the mechanical performance and physical characteristics are, in fact, critical in many instances, this seminar is very beneficial to professionals that are working on design, development, application engineering, fastener procurement, and quality assurance.  If you are involved in the fastener supply chain or are an end user and seek to gain a better understanding of the fundamentals of heat treating and plating of fasteners, this course is designed especially for you.

Most Beneficial To:

  • Professionals working on design & development.
  • Professionals working on application engineering.
  • Professionals working on fastener procurement and quality assurance.
  • Professional in the fastener supply chain.
  • End users seeking to learn more.
