U.S./European Welding Standards
January 26–28, 2014
Staybridge Suites Miami Doral
The American Welding Society (AWS) and Germany's Gesellschaft für Schweißtechnik International (GSI) have partnered to deliver a unique conference where U.S. and European welding standards on numerous topics will be presented, compared, and discussed. This conference will benefit engineers, inspectors, supervisors, and quality control personnel who are familiar with one set of standards. Among the topics to be discussed are welding standards covering structural fabrication, pressure vessels, railway vehicles, and company certification. The format of the conference will be one expert presentation on the U.S. standards followed by an expert presentation on the comparable European standards for each topic. There will be open discussion allotted for each topic period.
February 5–6, 2014
New Orleans, LA
The demand for new and improved welding technology from the expanding energy markets are starting to pay off in the development of superior hybrid welding processes, new filler metals, and hosts of cladding procedures. The technologies are showing up in nuclear power plants, in coal-fired utilities, and especially in the new 1,700 mile long pipelines designed to bring oil and natural gas to American markets.
March 4–5, 2014
Sheraton Houston Brookhollow
Welding has always been an integral part of pipeline construction. It all goes back to the days when hand-held oxyacetylene torches were used to connect pipes together in the field. Current and future pipeline welding trends will be discussed during this AWS-sponsored conference on pipeline welding.
Stainless Steel Conference
March 25–26, 2014
Loews Philadelphia Hotel
This conference will bring together some of industry's most outstanding experts to discuss the welding of austenitic, duplex, and other grades of stainless steel. Topics will include dissimilar metal welds between stainless and steel, repair welding, cladding, cleaning, and the pitfalls involved in stress corrosion cracking.
Weld Cracking Conference
April 15–16, 2014
Hilton Garden Inn Denver Downtown
This conference will help welding engineers and others avoid mistakes and turn out high quality products. Topics range from impact tests and how they relate to potential weld cracking as well as the control of moisture in welding consumables.
Technical conference on resistenance welding topics presented by AWS and the Resistance Welding Manufacturing Alliance (RWMA).
May 28–29, 2014
New Orleans, LA
The 17th Aluminum Welding Conference will feature a distinguished panel of aluminum-industry experts who will survey the state of the art in aluminum welding technology and practice. This conference also provides several opportunities for you to network informally with speakers and other participants, as well as to visit an exhibition showcasing products and services available to the aluminum welding industry.
The American Welding Society has created a conference program that answers questions on the essential requirements to become an accredited testing facility. Conference topics include skill training, curriculum strategies, advanced e-learning strategies, and many other topics. Educational institutions, corporate trainers, and educators are all encouraged to attend.
Heat Treatment Conference
August 12–13, 2014
Sheraton Arlington Hotel
The thermal effects from welding and heat treatment influence the microstructure and mechanical properties of welds. Various materials, such as carbon steels and other alloy grades, are affected by heat treatment which changes the weld metallurgy and influences the final welded product. Better understanding of the impact of welding and heat treatment practices can allow for the weld quality and reliability to be optimized for the application.
Additive Manufacturing Conference
September 9–10, 2014
Renaissance Orlando Airport Hotel
Come and learn about additive manufacturing processes such as powder bed fusion, material extrusion, directed energy deposition, and material jetting. These are but a few of the topics that will be discussed.
