THE INDIAN INSTITUTE OF WELDING
The Indian Institute of Welding (IIW-India) is a representative body of professional welding engineers in India and a member society of IIW. Established in 1966 with headquarters at Kolkata, it
has twelve branches located in different parts of the country. The Institute has been accredited as an Authorized National Body (ANB) of "International Institute of Welding" through which the Institute
offers International Diplomas to the Indian welding professionals.
The Institute has also received preliminary approval as Authorized National Body for Company Certification (ANBCC India) from IIWlAB under the IIW-Manufacturers Certification Scheme through which it aims to certify companies after thorough audit of their activities as per requirements of ISO 3834.
IIW-India is already engaged in training of welding professional personnel and conducting AMIIW examination which is considered as equivalent to an Engineering Degree, and is approved by HRD Ministry of Government of India. The Institute conducts its own welder certification under National Welder Training & Certification Scheme (NWTCS), which has been prepared to meet the demand by industry for welders, trained and certified to a level of competency commensurate with the requirements of any of the welder qualification and certification specifications or codes i.e. IS:731 0 / IS:817, ISO:9606-1, BSEN:287 and ASME Sec IX/AWS D1.1. It also organizes tailor made courses for welding professionals at various levels ranging from Welder to Welding Engineer based on
specific requirements for a particular industry through its branches.
IIW publishes Indian Welding Journal in collaboration with American Welding Society that covers latest techniques in welding, case studies, activities of branches and future programmes of IIW and AWS.
IIW-India has also been empanelled by Government of India, DGE&T (Directorate General of Employment and Training) as an Assessing Body for all Fabrication sector courses under their MES-SDI (Modular Employment Skills - Skill Development Initiative Scheme).
ABOUT THE SEMINAR
Welding is now the universally accepted method of permanently joining all metals. In some respects, it might be considered a mature industry but it is still a growing industry. Some of the key challenges
lying ahead for the welding industry are:
(a) Productivity issues and decreasing profit margins due to increasing costs and expenses;
(b) Technological issues towards the increasing trends in use of higher-strength and lighter-weight materials;
(c) Quality issues requiring higher levels of reliability;
(d) Accelerating trend towards automatic welding and automation.
The seminar aims to highlight the past and present trends of the Welding Industry and finding out the ways and means to meet the future challenges being faced by it.
The seminar will cover invited lectures by some of the bests in the Industry and Academia, and papers will be presented by experts, researchers, industrialists, entrepreneurs and welding professionals.
TOPICS TO BE COVERED
• Advanced Welding / Cutting Processes, Procedures, Equipments and Consumables
• Welding of pipe-lines, pressure vessels and structures etc.
• Productivity, Quality, Inspection and Testing in Welding / Cutting
• Codes and Standards in Welding
• Welding Education, Training and Certification
• Sensing, Control and Automation in Welding
• Weldability aspects and Safety in Welding
• Repair, Reclamation and Maintenance in Welding
• Other Experimental/Modeling Investigations
It is expected tht about 200 delegates from various fields shall be attending the seminar. The meet will be a showcase for welding industry. It shall be a great opportunity to learn about developments and continual research in this field.
