Developing a U.S. Roadmap for Advanced Joining and Forming Technologies — A New Report

IMG_9038Recently, EWI led the development of the first comprehensive U.S. Advanced Joining and Forming Technology Roadmap under a program funded by The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) through the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Consortia (AMTech) program. The goal of this two-year effort was to develop a prioritized list of research and development topics aimed at increasing the competitiveness of U.S. manufacturing.
The roadmap provides a national perspective on the technical and economic needs of the materials-joining and metal-forming industries and incorporates input from over 400 companies across every major manufacturing segment in the U.S.

Reducing Manufacturing Costs with Robotic Welding — New Paper

CaptureAs the manufacturing marketplace becomes increasingly competitive, many companies must re-think their innovation strategies to meet increasing customer demands, adopt new production technologies, and create more intelligent products. The most successful manufacturers leverage the latest technological innovations and think of higher productivity as a culture.

While robotic welding has been used for decades to improve quality and throughput, recent innovations further increase the impact of automation. A new paper from EWI, Reducing Manufacturing Costs with Robotic Weldingprovides an overview of the many benefits of robotic welding, including examples of how manufacturers can put automation to best use.

Welding Aluminum in Automotive Applications — Free EWI Webinar

shutterstock_Forming-car frameOn April 4, 2017, EWI will offer a free webinar, Welding Aluminum in Automotive Applications. The online event will be presented by Sam Lewis and Dave Workman from EWI’s Resistance and Solid-State Processes group.

Automotive manufacturers are increasingly interested in the use of aluminum as lightweight material to meet today’s CAFE standards. The welding of aluminum components, however, requires understanding of the unique properties of this metal as compared to steel. This webinar will discuss differences in the two materials and ways to meet the welding challenges. This presentation will include:

• Background on spot welding aluminum in the automotive industry
• Differences in spot welding aluminum and steel
• Technology as evolved from the aerospace industry
• Electrode life issues
• Influence of electrode design and topography
• Effects of evolving equipment
• Spot welding aluminum using third body elements
• Spot welding aluminum to steel

There is no charge for Welding Aluminum in Automotive Applications, but advanced registration is required due to space limitations. To sign up for the webinar, please click here.

For more information or questions about registration, please contact Beth at bsharb@ewi.org.
