The November 13 presentation is entitled, “Reducing Scrap on Tube and Pipe Mills”

Roll-Kraft, a leader in tube and pipe and roll forming education, will once again be sending its own experienced instructors, Robert Sladky and Bret Molnar, to FABTECH 2012 as presenters. Together, they have over 74 years of combined experience in the tube and pipe industry. Mr. Sladky will be the session leader for the “Reducing Scrap on Tube and Pipe Mills” presentation that will take place on November 13 at 8 AM.

This session will address key factors that affect scrap, such as validating incoming material, proper end welds, mill configuration, roll designs, integrity and alignment, cooling, preventative maintenance programs, proper setup, documentation, and tooling maintenance programs. Participants will learn how to identify problems and implement corrective measures that will build morale, improve product quality, reduce scrap, and produce greater profits.

Last year at FABTECH, Mr. Sladky and Mr. Molnar presented, “Tube and Pipe Mill Setup, Tooling Design Evaluation and Problems and Solutions.” The session was well attended and was greatly beneficial, as indicated by the many comments received. This year’s session will continue to provide on-going education to mill operators and industry personnel, as everyone moves towards the goal of producing superior products and reducing waste.

FABTECH is North America's largest metal forming, fabricating, welding, and finishing event. This year’s event takes place November 12-14 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. For more information and to register, visit
