Heat Treatment Conference — Early registration ends June 27!​
AWS
August 12-13, 2014
Dallas

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.

Discount only valid until June 27!

Report: Manufacturing key to middle-class health
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
The health of the American middle class depends on a revival of manufacturing, a commission headed by two former governors — one Republican, one Democrat — has concluded. The sector has shrunk since the 1950s and some industries have gone entirely overseas, according to the report issued June 13 by the University of Virginia Miller Center commission. The commission is chaired by former governors Haley Barbour of Mississippi, a Republican, and Evan Bayh of Indiana, a Democrat.

South Carolina instructor's passion for welding leads to state award
Aiken Standard
A decade ago, Kevin Rawlins, a senior welding student at the Aiken County (South Carolina) Career and Technology Center, was named the facility’s student of the year. Five years later, he joined the staff as the welding instructor. In 2011, Rawlins was selected as the teacher of the year. The awards kept coming. Recently, Rawlins was named the I Am CATE state winner through the state’s Office of Career and Technology Education, known as CATE. He was recognized as the top teacher who previously had graduated from high school in a career-based program.

Report: Caltrans decision to hire inexperienced Chinese firm for Bay Bridge welding 'will haunt' travelers 'for generations'
Equipment World
A detailed investigative report from The Sacramento Bee has found that the California Department of Transportation’s decision to hire a Chinese firm with no experience building bridges to construct key parts of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, “will haunt the new span and the traveling public for generations to come.” Construction on the bridge was completed last year at a cost of around $6.5 billion. That final cost was much higher than originally anticipated after years of construction delays.

Welder-turned-sculptor shapes metal into art
The Northern Virginia Daily
Considering the detail and maturity of his work, it would be easy to think that John Urbanski studied sculpture. His most recent work — a statue featuring a couple embracing under an umbrella — sold for a nice chunk of change. But 26-year-old Urbanski's education was in welding, not sculpture. Very few of the typical artist cliches apply to Urbanski — least of which being pretension and snobbishness. Those that do — creative integrity, technical prowess — shine through in his work.

3-D printing poised to propel manufacturing
Citizen-Times
Isaac Norris is fascinated with the idea of flying his own quadcopter, a four-rotor drone that he could send overhead with up to 10 pounds of camera equipment. But he didn't want to just buy one starting at $1,000. He wanted to design his own copter and print it out. "I knew about the copter side of things, but I had to learn about 3-D printing. You can take what's in your mind and make it real," the 15-year-old Asheville (North Carolina) High student said.
