AWS News and Events

2017 AWS Conferences

Quality educational materials – and welding conferences in particular – are just one way your membership serves you. By presenting the latest technology, cutting-edge topics, and industry experts, AWS puts the key to industry expertise and advancement in its members’ hands. Rely on AWS to bring you the highest quality conferences in the welding industry.

  • Weld Repair Conference
    August 8-9, 2017 / Portland, Oregon
  • Weld repairs occur across nearly all industries and types of alloys. Whether it is performed immediately after joint completion, after hydrostatic testing & NDE or after the failure of an in-service component, successful repair welding should take into account code compliance, Quality Assurance, Fitness-for-Service and economic considerations. Each weld pass adds another chapter in the thermal and mechanical history of the component, affecting its mechanical and/or corrosion resistance properties. Accurately planning, designing and executing the repair are critical to make the component suitable for continued service.
