Greetings AWS New York Section Members and Friends,

Below are the details for our upcoming meeting.

DATE & TIME:
Thursday, September 17 2015
4:30 PM

LOCATION:
New York City District Council of Carpenters, Labor Technical College
Hudson and Clarkson Street
Enter on Clarkson Street and go to the basement welding shop

LECTURE:
The VRTEX© from Lincoln Electric is a VRAW™ (Virtual Reality Arc Welding) training solution. It puts effective and efficient welding training in the hands of the instructor in a classroom, mobile welding training and blended welding training environment. It does not replace welding training. It supplements and enhances the welding instructor's ability to attract and engage students during their education programs in a cost-effective method.

THE NEW YORK SECTION CHALLENGE:
If you think you can weld two razor blades together, sharp edge to sharp edge, then ask to meet the New York Section Challenge. You will be supplied on loan a fixture to make the weld, and a suggested WPS. Make the weld and return the weld and the fixture to us. Successful respondents will be invited to a meeting and awarded a plaque to display your achievement.

Activity:
The labor college will have an on-going class in the shop. Section members and guests will have an opportunity to mingle with the class and interface with the students. Attendees will have the opportunity to try the VRTEX and to respond to the New York Section Challenge.

The plaque will be awarded to the first successful respondent to the New York Section Challenge.

Pizza and soft drinks will be served.

We hope to see you there!
