Brazing - A Great Joining Process for the 21st Century!
Brazing is a unique joining process that has proven to be one of the most versatile methods by which to permanently join many different kinds of metals/non-metals together in a variety of industries, including aerospace, automotive, electrical power, petrochemical, etc.
Many people think they know how to braze, but they often don’t really understand why brazing works. It has been proven over the years that when people involved in brazing understood the concepts taught in these seminars, and implemented them in their operations, the vast majority of their brazing problems disappeared! Result: higher productivity, lower rework, higher customer satisfaction, and higher profits!
Kay & Associates high-powered three-day intensive seminars cover all the essential elements of brazing in a way that is not only easily understood, but very interesting as well. All seminars run from 8:00 AM until 5 PM each day.
What will be covered during the three days. Here's some of the topics:
Who should attend this seminar?
Anyone who, by their decisions or actions, has an impact on the brazing operations in their plant: owners, managers, design engineers (brazing begins on the "drawing board"), metallurgists, process engineers, shop leadpersons, operators, quality control and inspection personnel, maintenance personnel, sales persons. When you understand the brazing process, you'll be able to help your customers better.
Instructor: Dan Kay (BMetEng, MBA), who operates his own brazing consulting practice based in Connecticut (since 1996), has been involved full-time in brazing for more than 35-years, and has taught brazing seminars throughout that entire time period. He received his Bachelor of Metallurgical Engineering degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1966, and his MBA from Michigan State University in 1982. He spent seven years with Handy & Harman, where he not only taught their torch-brazing seminars, but spent a lot of time in the field helping customers solve both torch and induction brazing problems. From there he went to Wall Colmonoy Corporation, where for fifteen years he worked closely with furnace brazing operations around the world, both atmosphere and vacuum, still teaching brazing seminars every year along the way. He was also responsible for the production of a highly successful brazing-newsletter that went out to thousands of people around the world. Whatever method of brazing you are using (torch, induction, resistance, or furnace), you will find that Dan will provide much valuable information that you will be able to quickly apply in your operations to increase productivity.
