EWI Improves In-House High-Magnification Measuring Capabilities

By Bill Colgan on Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016 in Corporate Blog, DCA, Resistance Processes. No Comments

Designers at EWI often need to take precise measurements of extremely small parts. Measurement of small parts using calipers has two problems: Errors associated with measurements using traditional calipers become significant on a small scale The pliable nature of small parts makes them susceptible to distortion when measured with calipers, which yields inaccurate results ARead more


Returning from FABTECH 2015 – An EWI Associate’s Perspective

By Randy Dull on Tuesday, November 17th, 2015 in Arc Welding, Events, Friction Process, Materials Engineering, Modeling Simulation, Resistance Processes. No Comments

FABTECH is always an information-packed meeting for me. This year, advances in computer technology and information sharing capability was a strong theme with equipment suppliers.  New types and improvements in welding consumables were also noteworthy.  Welder training devices, including a couple that EWI helped to develop, were drawing crowds in several booths. EWI engineers hadRead more
