Lincoln Electric Experts Offer Insight into Aluminum Welding Technology and Practices at Upcoming AWS 15th Annual Aluminum Welding Conference
Lincoln Electric, Automation Division Posted 08/10/2012Two Lincoln Electric experts will share their insights about aluminum welding as part of a distinguished panel of speakers presenting during the upcoming American Welding Society (AWS) 15th Annual Aluminum Welding Conference, Sept. 18-19, in Seattle.
Frank Armao, Director of Aluminum Technology, Lincoln Electric, and Greg Doria, Director of Global Sales – Indalco Alloys, a division of The Lincoln Electric Company of Canada LP, will present three sessions during the first day of the conference, held at the Hilton Seattle.
Armao will discuss “The Aluminum Designation System,” explaining AA's aluminum alloy and temper designation system, as well as the physical and mechanical properties of aluminum alloys, at 9:15 a.m. on Sept. 18.
He also will present “Gas Metal Arc Welding of Aluminum Alloys” at 2:15 p.m. that day. In this presentation, Armao will discuss metal transfer modes, shielding gas types, wire feed systems, and power source selection – constant voltage, constant current, pulse or variable polarity.
On that same day at 1:30 p.m., Doria will present “Metal Preparation for Aluminum Welding.” He will stress the importance of proper weld preparations – one of the key steps in producing good quality welded joints – to avoid weld discontinuities in aluminum welding.
In addition to listening to these great Lincoln Electric speakers, conference participants also will have the opportunity to visit the Lincoln Electric booth in the exhibition area of the conference for networking and a chance to see and discuss the latest products and services available for the aluminum welding industry.
