Buehler to Host Virtual Hardness Testing Event
October 5, 2020
Buehler, an ITW Company is hosting Wilson Hardness Days, November 4-5, 2020. This virtual educational program includes two half days of an immersion into Hardness Testing, Calibration, the Latest on Hardness Testers and DiaMet Software. Hardness Days is part of the centennial anniversary celebration of Buehler’s Wilson hardness tester product line and is offered complimentary to all.
Dr. Mike Keeble, US Labs and Technology Manager and Dr. Evans Mogire, EU Labs and Technology Manager have planned educational programs for both beginners and experienced lab technicians. Along with other Buehler experts they will share their knowledge on key hardness testing topics that will be of interest to Materials Labs at Universities, Research & Development Centers and Production Quality Control laboratories in many industries including automotive, aerospace, defense, and metals.
Dr. Keeble states, “As we celebrate Wilson, the hardness brand within Buehler, we want to mark this year with something special. Many customers can’t travel to trade shows or our Solutions Centers to see the machines in action, so along with many other activities we decided to bring the lab to them with technical and educational webinars and now the Hardness Days event.”
Dr. Mogire adds, “Since we wanted to make this available to as many customers as possible, we decided to offer the program during the morning hours in the United States, which will allow our European customers to join us as well. We are delighted to put this on and hope that this becomes a valuable resource for all industries that include hardness testing in their quality control programs.”
Attendees are invited to register once and obtain access to any or all of the online events. Both days open at 9:00 am CST and end at approximately 12:30 pm CST. The specific topic times are available on the web registration page; there will be 15 minute intermissions between topics for transition. So participants can jump on or jump off as they like during the program.
The Wilson Hardness Days virtual event includes product introductions, plant tours, hardness testing fundamentals, live demonstrations, and more.
In addition to Dr. Keeble and Dr. Mogire, presenters include Julien Noel, Buehler general manager and ITW vice president; Benjamin Mangrich, Americas commercial director; Sarah Beranek, global director of innovations; Doug Ngai, hardness applications engineer; Matthias Pascher, hardness product manager; Mike Connors, senior service technician; Sandra Brosious, metallurgic and quality control supervisor for Test Block Lab; and Ryan Wise, hardness production manager.
