High Productivity Welding Demonstration
By Nate Ames on Friday, April 6th, 2012
EWI, PCC, the EWI Nuclear Fabrication Center, and the DOE Office of Nuclear Energy are hosting a high productivity welding demonstration on April 19th. The demonstration is designed to provide fabricators the necessary information and first hand exposure to high productivity welding processes like Laser Hybrid Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) and GMAW Tandem. The two processes will be baselined against the industry standard of Submerged Arc Welding (SAW). Each of the three welding processes will be demonstrated on ~1-1/2-in thick HY100 plate. The joints are going to be 5 feet long and the restraint will be comparable for each process. The processes will be evaluate in terms of cost to implement, distortion, inspectability and typical resultant properties from each process.
Please join us for the exciting demonstration by registering in advance, space is limited and we don’t want you to miss out.
