The 2016 NCPWB Technical Committee Meeting (April 24-25, Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, Ponte Vedra, FL) featured presentations about the latest developments in welding technologies, materials, equipment and processes.
Brandon Boyd and Josh Wilson of Mathey Dearman, Inc., a manufacturer of pipe fabrication tools, explained how modern technology is affecting the productivity, quality and safety of projects. Real-world examples of success and challenges and the development of new materials and alloys and their effects on processes and equipment were aso covered. Tim Gittens of Liburdi Dimetrics Corporation led a session about “Optimized” Orbital Welding, a process that can be used to isolate and manage welding process variables to produce defect-free—or optimized—welds.
Plan on attending next year, April 23-26, in San Antonio, Texas.
