From the point of view of producers and users, a component failure represents an undesirable and cost-intensive damage, e.g. in the engine or transmission. The necessary replacement of the affected components can result in high damage sums and a loss of image for the company.
In addition to the occurrence of overloads, the type and quantity of non-metallic inclusions present in the material are also factors influencing damage. The effects of non-metallic inclusions can be better controlled and the quality of the end product improved by a suitable choice of material and its manufacturing process.
The aim of this seminar is to explain the interrelationships between production, degree of purity and component properties and to familiarise the participants with the measurement and evaluation methods of the macroscopic and microscopic degree of purity on the basis of test standards (SEP 1927, SEP 1571, DIN 50602, ASTM and ISO) and extreme evaluation methods.
