Weld Cracking Conference
March 26-27, 2013
Much to their chagrin, most welding engineers have witnessed a crack or two or even more in the welds fabricated within their plants. That is no fun. Most of these cracks can be prevented from taking place.

All it takes is more practical knowledge. Were the cracks caused by hydrogen diffusion, residual stress, some mix-up in heat treating, misuse of electrodes in dissimilar metal welds, or some unexplained problem with the heat-affected zone? To find out what it takes to eliminate weld cracks, you should have gone out of your way, and made plans to attend a new and different AWS Conference on Weld Cracking which was held on March 26-27, 2013 in Las Vegas. The experts were there, armed with solutions to many of your problems.

Event Program

8th Shipbuilding Conference
February 26-27, 2013
The conference included a technical program featuring presentations on advanced welding processes, NDT, materials, robotics and mechanized welding for shipbuilding applications. Presenters discussed new flux core welding electrodes for high yield steels, a new approach to reduce diffusible hydrogen content in the weld zone, aluminum applications and welding tractors that can be used for all position welding that do not require tracks. Other presentations addressed the integration of robotics and welding power supplies, hybrid laser welding in shipyards, and the use of portable robots to join thick steel plating.
