Most stainless steel joins are welded. Unless an excellent gas shielding and purging regime, treatments are required to remove the heat effects. Products built for aggressive environments may specify factory welding for sub-structures, which are then wrapped, transported to site and bolted together. Mass produced fasteners are obviously critical but often do not receive the attention required for premium quality.

This webinar will raise awareness and provide solutions for potential fastener issues such as:

  • Galvanic effects;
  • Galling of austenitic and even duplex stainless steels;
  • Contamination from tooling, friction bolting and vibration issues including fretting.

It also includes:

  • Specifications and standards;
  • Types of fasteners (including screws, dowels and rivets);
  • The differences between the families of stainless steels and carbon steel and;
  • Examples and non-fastening or crimping solutions for tubes.

Presenter: Dr Graham Sussex, Technical Specialist
Graham is a materials expert with over 30 years experience and more than 600 technical publications to his name. Stainless steel is his specialty.

Cost: $45/person ASSDA, ASSDA Accredited and Engineers Australia members, $85/person non-members
