People who work with steel know that it's a remarkable material, available in many forms, grades and chemistries. For distributors and original equipment manufacturers who want to better understand the material that they sell and work with, we offer the Timken Steel Institute.
Timken has been making steel for over 90 years, giving us a level of expertise in metallurgy and material selection that few can match. We can provide you with valuable insights into the metallurgy of steel, an overview of steelmaking process, and insights regarding how to evaluate the use of different types of steel to meet specific needs.
The Timken Steel Institute is an intense 3-1/2 day training session available only to Timken Authorized Steel Distributors and select OEM's. Beyond a better understanding of the physical traits and production of steel, attendees will also benefit from our insights regarding near- and long-term steel market activity. This training balances in-class sessions with in-depth tours of our steelmaking operations in the Canton, Ohio area.
