You Can't Afford to Weld like that!
Wed, 26 April 2017, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM MDT
This entertaining presentation pinpoints the industry’s reluctance to change and contrasts the easy steps leading to improved productivity. Welding methods, processes and parameters all play a part in the finished weld. Quality also improves when productivity is done properly. The presenter strongly believes that no matter what the present procedures are, improvements are always possible and various examples of efficiency gains are always achievable. Welding economics are taught and pointed out in this presentation. We are all now in the global market and the need for welding productivity methods and techniques has never been greater.
