CWB Head Office, 8260 Parkhill Drive, Milton

Topic 1 - Laser Beam Welding of Hot Press Forming Steel in automotive applications

Hadi Razmpoosh
PhD Student Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering The University of Waterloo (UW)

Hadi will be discussing the application of tailor welded blanks (Laser beam welded) of ultra-high strength steel in automotive anti-crash components.

Topic 2 - Investigation of Rotational GMAW (SpinArc™) for Narrow-Gap Welding

Tyler Rudniki & Caleb Devries
Studends at Conestoga College, Mfg. Eng. Technology-Welding & Robotics Program

Tyler & Caleb will be talking about “The current study examines SpinArc Welding technology. First, Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) process with SpinArc Welding technology is used to produce a ¾” thick square groove butt joint weld. This procedure will be compared with a prequalified CSA-W59 Submerged Arc Welding (SAW) procedure of the same material thickness. In addition, a design of engineering experiment will be used to reveal the effects of various SpinArc parameters on the resultant weld geometry.”

Topic 3 - A Comparison of Shear Strength and Tensile Strength in High Strength Brazed Joints using High Temperature Braze Alloy

Sean Morton
Student at Northern College

Sean will be talking about the changes of mechanical properties in high strength brazed joints using high temperature braze alloy.
