Nonferrous Metals

Provided by: ToolingU

"Nonferrous Metals" provides an overview of the properties and uses of common nonferrous metals, including aluminum, copper, magnesium, nickel, lead, and titanium. This class also discusses how refractory metals and how nonferrous metals are classified in the Unified Numbering System (UNS). Selecting the best alloy for an application begins with understanding each metal's properties and interactions. Nonferrous metals, although not as widely used as steel, are still valued as essential alloying elements or for advanced applications. After taking this class, new or practicing manufacturers will be able to identify various nonferrous metals, their characteristics, and their uses.
