EWI will host its five-day Fundamentals of Welding Engineeringcourse at the EWI Columbus, OH, headquarters, October 14-18, 2019. Don’t miss your opportunity to take this popular class; registration closes on October 2.
Taught by top-notch EWI engineers, Fundamentals of Welding Engineering provides engineers and technicians with an overview of the various aspects of welding technology including welding processes, welding metallurgy and weldability, welding design and testing (including mechanical testing and NDT), and qualifications and procedure review. Class size is limited to ensure all attendees have the opportunity to interact directly with instructors.
“This course provides an excellent mix of classroom and laboratory training with the lab portion enhanced by EWI’s world-class welding facility,” says Dr. Doug Fairchild, Sr. Metallurgical and Welding Consultant with ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company. “We have found it particularly useful for engineers who were not originally educated as welding engineers.”
The October session will be the last time the course is offered this year. Don’t delay — register today!
Recently EWI Director of Additive Manufacturing Programs,
Mark Barfoot, was featured on Exploradio,
a program about scientific innovation produced at Kent State University’s WKSU.
The conversation was broadcast following the Additive Manufacturing Cluster
of Ohio 2019 conference held late last month near Cleveland, OH.
The program segment examined the impact of
AM as a manufacturing technology and the ways in which it is changing the way products
are made. Barfoot shared his views on how far the industry has come, and how
new AM techniques are tipping the scales toward broader adoption of use in
industrial fabrication. With metal AM, he said, “we’re moving into the meat and
potatoes of actually making production parts.”

The EWI Forming Center is pleased to announce the agenda for its upcoming Advanced Sheet Metal Forming Technology workshop. The event (co-sponsored with the Preceision Metalworking Association) will take place October 8-9 in Columbus, Ohio.
Michael Ulbrich, President of EWI NY, will be joined by Ben Rand from Insyte Consulting to present Overcoming the Challenges of Manufacturing Technology Innovation and Adoption with Local Small and Medium-sized Manufacturers at the MEP National Network Summit on September 17th in Atlanta. The meeting will bring together more than 500 representatives of the MEP network to share knowledge while advancing and integrating Network capabilities
The session will focus on best practices that help small and medium-sized manufacturers (SMMs) identify and prepare for the innovative technology and processes necessary to stay competitive in the global market. The presentation will lay out a system that has been specifically developed to meet individual SMMs where they are today and help them progress toward greater competitiveness in an orderly, risk-managed, and achievable manner. A holistic and integrated model – complete with unique assessments, hands-on workshops, and on-the-shop-floor manufacturing technology planning and adoption projects – will be introduced in detail.
Following the presentation, EWI associates Liz Callahan, Mike Garman, and Dominic Myers, will join Ulbrich and Rand for a panel discussion with attendees about adopting and implementing the model to leverage manufacturing technology, spark innovation and drive growth.
