Canadian Welding Bureau Teams Up With International Titanium Association on How to Weld Titanium

    BROOMFIELD, Colo., Jan. 30 /CNW/ -- The International Titanium
Association (ITA) in association with the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) will
host three Welding of Titanium Workshops in March 2009.  Any individuals
wishing to learn how to weld titanium correctly or wishing to learn how to
weld titanium more effectively will benefit from this workshop.

    Techniques will be discussed unique to titanium not readily apparent in
other metal joining. The course will discuss various forms of titanium joining
like Electron Beam, Laser, MIG, TIG and Plasma. Primary focus will be on the
GTAW (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding) or Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) method for joining

    Individuals will also learn to deal with the challenges of everyday
fabrication in the true shop environment. Titanium can and is welded every day
in the open shop environment for the most stringent and critical applications
and you can too.

    The Welding of Titanium Workshop includes 5 hours of classroom study
along with instructions on the correct welding equipment and work area needed
for a successful titanium weld, proper joint design, anti-contamination
procedures, and how to evaluate procedures and techniques.  In addition the
workshop will include 3 hour hands-on exercises for a full day workshop.
