Mentor, OH (PRWEB) December 09, 2013
Robert A. Sladky, Roll-Kraft’s Vice President of Tube Mill Engineering, and Bret Molnar, Roll-Kraft’s Senior Technical Advisor, once again participated in the educational programs offered to the tube and pipe industry in conjunction with the annual FABTECH show which this year was held in Chicago.
Their presentation this year was entitled “Forming Stainless Steel Tubes”. Important factors on proper tube and pipe tooling design and set up for stainless steel were covered during the two hour session.
Whereas less than half of the sign ups were from the tube producing industry, many were again, as in past years, either thinking of getting into the tube fabricating business, or were end users that wanted to be more educated on the process of tube fabrication.
“The makeup of the audience led to many questions during the presentation on how the many factors that were presented regarding tooling design and proper set up might not be up to par at the vendor’s locations where the secondary users were buying their tubing from,” Sladky said. “They were able to readily relate the problems in fabrication they were having with some of the stainless tubing to the problems and solutions presented at the session. This educational insight will allow these firms to get back with their producers and work on possible problems they might have and correct them. “
Sladky and Molnar continue to firmly believe that continued education in the tube and pipe field is advantageous to both the tube producer and secondary fabricator of tubing in the industry.
