Welding cells adapting to manufacturing changes
Plant Engineering
In today's changing manufacturing environment, many companies find themselves having to adapt to various jobs, contracts and competitors. This necessity can stem from a change in the type of product being manufactured, a change in the material being used, or changing rules and regulations regarding employee safety, such as weld fume exposure. With this frequency in manufacturing changes, taking steps to plan out the features in a weld cell can help companies make the space and equipment much more functional for the job at hand — and for the jobs to come.

Additive Manufacturing Conference
AWS
Thursday, November 13, 2014
8:00 a.m.-4:45 p.m.
FABTECH Show — Georgia World Congress Center — Room C205
Atlanta, GA

Additive manufacturing represents the realization of the ideal of "on-demand manufacturing." Without molds or dies, additive manufacturing enables production of parts and prototypes on demand. Design improvements can be made and tested rapidly without tooling and machining constraints.

Come and learn from the experts about additive manufacturing processes such as powder bed fusion, material extrusion, directed energy deposition, material jetting, and more.

Industry demand for welders sparks hiring
Houston Chronicle
According to the Texas Workforce Commission, welding has been one of the most in-demand careers in the Gulf Coast area since 2010, and the TWC's projected estimated employment figure for welders from 2010 to 2020 in the region is 20,650, which represents an industry growth of nearly 27 percent. For 2013, the TWC estimated average annual wage for entry-level welders was $28,031; the estimated average salary for experienced welders was $45,533. But, with the recent growing demand for welders, wages are rising dramatically with reports of entry-level welders with a one-year certificate earning as much as $28 per hour.

Grant brings 'virtual reality' welding to North Carolina college
Rowan-Cabarrus Community College via WBTV-TV
Duke Energy and Rowan-Cabarrus Community College recently announced a $247,453 investment from the Duke Energy Foundation. The funds will be used to integrate virtual reality welding into traditional welding curriculum to enhance the quality, quantity and efficiency of training — ultimately increasing the number of welders entering the field. Virtual reality welding equipment eliminates the cost of the metal used in traditional welding classes. Additionally, the device scores each weld and gives immediate feedback to the student welder.

Feds turn to job-driven training initiatives to close skills gap
BLR
Federal officials are hoping that federal job-driven training initiatives will equip job-seekers with in-demand skills and then match them with employers looking for skilled labor. “To put people on the path to meaningful careers, we need to provide them with the skills, credentials, and certifications that businesses are looking for right now. We must ask this question about everything we do: Is it helping ready-to-work Americans move into ready-to-be-filled jobs?” U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez wrote in a recent Department of Labor blog post about job-driven training.

Emerging manufacturing: Smart and fast, with a culture clash
Chicago Tribune
Modern industrial practices at large manufacturing operations will involve smart devices more often, employ adaptive machining techniques, integrate design processes that improve parts almost as they're made and will “print” digital files at factories distributed around the world. Michael F. Molnar, director of the Advanced Manufacturing National Program Office housed in the National Institute of Standards and Technology, made the predictions recently on the periphery of the International Manufacturing Technology Show at McCormick Place.
