Metal fabricators and welders will have an opportunity to hear about the latest in welding trends and technologies at the 4th annual conference of the Canadian Welding Association (CWA), CanWeld Conference 2013.

The conference will be held October 28-30 at the Marriott Gateway, Niagara Falls, ON.

"Welding has always been the backbone in the Canadian manufacturing industry," says Dan Tadic, CWA's executive director. "Without it, the sector wouldn't be an economic driver for the Canadian economy. As new welding technologies and processes are developed to move the industry forward, welding will always play a significant role in the industry. This conference is one that cannot be missed by all stakeholders in the manufacturing industry as every aspect from advanced welding processes and new technological aspects will be covered by some of the most prominent individuals in the industry."

The comprehensive conference will cover a range of topics, including gas metal arc welding for high productivity applications, high power fiber laser welding applications, advances in hot wire TIG welding, high speed GMA girth welding systems for pipelines, web based simulation of welding and welded structures, and welding maintenance.
