Conference Description:

Achieve a better understanding and greater sensitivity toward existing metal structures and fabrication technologies through rare hands-on experience in the repair, rehabilitation and restoration of metal structures using careful application of welding technology and related processes.

This conference intends to increase the number of engineers, designers, builders and contractors who can confidently specify industrial processes for the repair, rehabilitation and restoration of metals using both contemporary steel fabrication methods and historic technologies. Participants will also gain knowledge through hands-on demonstrations and expert panel discussions.

Through demonstrations, attendees will learn trades and skills used in the repair and preservation of metals with the following tools and techniques used in the industry today: Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Flux-Cored Arc Welding (FCAW), Oxygen Fuel Welding (OFW), Oxygen Fuel Brazing, and flame straightening of wrought iron and steel. Shop riveting and field riveting used in the fabrication and erection of bridges and buildings will also be featured, as these methods are promoted for the preservation of riveted metal structures. Participants will see these processes at work and be given an opportunity to drive field rivets during the hands-on demonstrations.


NOTE: Registration closes on October 8, 2019.
