INTRODUCTION TO ALUMINUM METALLURGY

Aluminum Courses are held at Grafoid Global Technology Centre, home to Alcereco, former Global Technology of Novelis, Alcan headquarters—Our trainers also offer mobile services

Course Description

The Introduction to Aluminum Metallurgy is a one-day course that focuses on introducing the fundamentals and basics of aluminum metallurgy. We will cover the basic properties of aluminum, as well as the principles behind strengthening aluminum. The implications and impact of processing—hot rolling, cold rolling and annealing, on evolving the microstructure and properties of aluminum and its alloys will also be covered. This course is delivered by the industry professionals at Alcereco, who have extensive experience and knowledge in the field of aluminum metallurgy.

Who will Benefit?

This course is designed for new workers entering the aluminum industry, management level positions and graduates of engineering and material studies. This course will also benefit process and product engineers who want to further develop their knowledge of aluminum and its alloys.

INTRODUCTION TO ALUMINUM ROLLING METALS

Aluminum Courses are held at Grafoid Global Technology Centre, home to Alcereco, former Global Technology of Novelis, Alcan headquarters—Our trainers also offer mobile services

Course Description

The Introduction to Aluminum Rolling Metals is a one day-course, that will provide a solid foundation in standard rolling equipment and techniques, focusing on the key fundamentals of hot and cold rolling of aluminum flat products. The fundamentals of the mechanics of rolling in order to control gauge, profile, shape and flatness of aluminum rolled products will be covered. The experts at Alcereco have years of professional experience working with aluminum rolling plants and will offer problem-solving techniques for resolution of day-to-day operational issues.

Who will Benefit?

This course is designed for engineers who work with aluminum rolling and management level positions, it will however, also greatly benefit new workers in the field of aluminum rolling and graduates of engineering and material studies. It is not limited to experienced workers who want to improve product quality and further their knowledge of rolling processes.

INTRODUCTION TO ALUMINUM METALLURGY AND ROLLING METALS

Aluminum Courses are held at Grafoid Global Technology Centre, home to Alcereco, former Global Technology of Novelis, Alcan headquarters—Our trainers also offer mobile services

Course Description

The Introduction to Aluminum Metallurgy and Rolling Metals is a two-day course. On the first day you will learn about the fundamentals of both rolling processes and basics of aluminum metallurgy. Day two continues to build on this knowledge and focuses more on the specific alloys/products, and the impact the rolling process has on these products. Understanding the interaction and impact of processing parameters on aluminum alloys, is key to knowing how the microstructure will evolve and hence, how the final properties will develop. This is a fundamental requirement of any plant engineer working in the aluminum industry. This course is taught by industry experts at Alcereco, who have fundamental knowledge in the field of aluminum

metallurgy, alloys and products; along with extensive experience in the rolling processes used in the manufacture of aluminum flat-rolled products.

Who will Benefit?

This course is designed for new workers entering the aluminum industry, management level positions, and graduates of engineering and material studies. This course will also benefit process and product engineers and experienced workers who want to improve product quality and further their knowledge of technical processes.
