Resistance Welding School

Resistance Welding School

This year, AWS and RWMA will again bring resistance welding experts together during the Emmett A. Craig Resistance Welding School to share their experience, techniques and tips. This intensive two-day course presented at FABTECH is packed with informative and instructional sessions on resistance welding theory, equipment, application requirements, and more.

Day One discusses the machines, materials, electrodes, power systems and processes associated with resistance welding.  Day Two explores machine set-up, maintenance, quality standards and controls, and concludes with a Q & A panel for students to get feedback on their specific applications from the instructors.

The Resistance Welding School is designed to benefit all members of the resistance welding community – technicians, supervisors, production managers, operators, trainers and educators – at all stages in their career, beginner to accomplished.
