Roll-Kraft Offers Live Seminars in Response to Increased Demand for Tube & Pipe Training and Roll Forming Training

Share Article

Roll-Kraft will host live seminars this summer to provide tube and pipe training and roll forming training to manufacturers. Details and registration are available on-line now. Alternative in-plant training continues to also be available.

After seeing a recent significant increase in the number of requests for in-plant tube & pipe training and roll forming training, Roll-Kraft has announced plans to host two live seminars this summer.

Robert Sladky, Vice President of Tube Mill Engineering for Roll-Kraft stated, “The demand for in-plant tube and pipe and roll forming training, both classroom and on-line training has been taking off in 2011. As the economic times turn around for most of our customers, they realize the importance of training to keep everyone on the same page and develop standards for all to follow. This results in consistent, reliable setups and production runs, while scrap and down time are kept at a minimum.”

According to Sladky, the key to the success of tube and pipe training and roll forming training programs is to have everyone attend, including management, maintenance, engineering, operators, and quality departments. This provides stability and sharpens the focus of the company on the steps necessary to make a good product.

“A tube mill operation is everyone’s responsibility,” Sladky said. “It is equally important that everyone follow through after the training to address the issues learned at the programs and change the old-school habits to the proven successful practices of the industry.”
