So You're the New Welding Engineer
Tuesday, November 11, 2014 – Wednesday, November 12, 2014
FABTECH Show – Georgia World Congress Center – Room C302
Atlanta, GA

How to get "up to speed" quickly, how to ask the right questions, how to get the results you need, save money, and stay out of trouble! This two-day conference is for managers, engineers, designers, and others with welding responsibility but limited exposure to or background in welding. The conference focuses on arc welding applications, but the principles have universal applicability. Presentations and discussion are based on the "Application Analysis Worksheet," which was developed to teach a senior college course to engineers about to enter industry, with the objective of helping them develop a path to understand and deal with the challenges they were about to face.

Additive Manufacturing Conference
Thursday, November 13, 2014
8:00am   4:45pm
FABTECH Show – Georgia World Congress Center – Room C205
Atlanta, GA

Additive manufacturing represents the realization of the ideal of "on-demand manufacturing." Without molds or dies, additive manufacturing enables production of parts and prototypes on demand. Design improvements can be made and tested rapidly without
tooling and machining constraints.

Come and learn from the experts about additive manufacturing processes such as powder bed fusion, material extrusion, directed energy deposition, material jetting, and more.

Thermal Spray Technology: High Performance Surfaces
Wednesday, November 12, 2014
FABTECH Show – Georgia World Congress Center – Room C201
Atlanta, GA

This conference is aimed at exploring the many facets of thermal spray including advanced uses of robotics in thermal spray, improving coating yield through powder feed optimization, recycling thermal spray overspray dust, and applying thermal spray anodic coatings to less than ideally prepared surfaces.

Emmet A. Craig Resistance Welding School
Wednesday, November 12, 2014 – Thursday, November 13, 2014
FABTECH Show – Georgia World Congress Center
Atlanta, GA

RWMA offers this intensive two-day course about the basics of resistance welding once a year. The school is designed to give operators, production supervisors, engineers, and others the opportunity to study, better understand, and further their knowledge in the theory, applications, and equipment used in the resistance welding process. This intense learning atmosphere will better prepare the unfamiliar and further educate the experienced.
