Quality educational materials – and welding conferences in particular – are just one way your membership serves you.

  • 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.
