National Welding Meet 2017 Bengaluru from 12-13 May 2017 by The Indian Institute of Welding IIW India


With a mission to be the Premier Professional Institute in India for the advancement of Welding Science & Technology and related activities, IIW India has been involved in human resources development in Welding in India by carrying out training and certification of engineers and welders in line with international standards; technology diffusion to the Industry and to the welding community; encouraging Research & Development in welding; and establishing international standards of quality for the Indian fabrication industry. IIW India's National Welding Training and Certification Scheme (NWTCS ) has been prepared to meet the demand of industry for welders, trained and certified to a level of competency commensurate with the requirements of any of the welder qualification and certification standards or codes. Directorate General of Employment &
Training (DGE&T), Government of India, Ministry of Labour & Employment has empanelled IIW-India as an “Assessing Body” for MES courses under Skill Development Initiative (SDI) Scheme for all courses under Fabrication Sectors in all States and Union Territories in India. IIW-India is an Authorised National Body (ANB) for training & certification of welding professionals by the International Institute of Welding, such as IWE, IWT, IWS & IWP. IIW-India has obtained accreditation as Authorised National Body for Company Certification (ANBCC) from the International Institute of Welding through its International Authorisation Board (IAB) for the exclusive rights within India to operate its Manufacturers Certification Scheme (MCS) forcertification of companies for compliance to the requirements of ISO 3834.


The Indian Institute of Welding - Bengaluru Branch is one of the older and most vibrant branches of IIW-India with a membership of 10 corporates and over 150 professionals. The Branch is tirelessly working towards the development of Welding technology and around Bengaluru. The branch activities include organizing training courses for Welders and welding Engineers and providing Consultancy to various industries to improve the quality of products and services.


Advances in Welding Technology 

Most international Manufacturing standards considers  welding as a special and critical-to-quality process. Welding is an absolute essential process of any manufacturing activity ranging from pin to plane. The National Welding Meet-NWM2017 is being organized to focus on recent developments in welding, to discuss on opportunities for welding professionals and welders to improve their skill sets. NWM2017 is aimed at creating a common platform on which Industries & Professional alike come together to exchange ideas and knowledge for mutual benefits. It also provides an exciting opportunity for the educational and professional institutes to meet the industry. The meet will also provide for the industry to get upto date on the research and developments on Welding and related technology.

Skill Development for Make in India

India will have the largest young work force by 2020 in the world. This is coinciding with the eminent huge demand for skilled workforce in the welding sector. To capitalize this opportunity in India large number of companies are establishing their global manufacturing bases in India.

This will lead to rapid industrialization; with it will come the large gap in the demand-supply of skilled workforce in this vital sector. NWM2017 seeks to address this key issue and its associated challenges in the welding skill improvement.


Bengaluru, formerly known as Bangalore has recently been adjudged as the world’s most dynamic city in a global  survey. Although, more popularly referred to as the IT capital of India; Namma Bengaluru is the major manufacturing hub for Aerospace, Automobile, Engineering, Earth moving equipment and more recently biotechnology companies. The city is home to major R&D centres for HAL, BEML, Indian Defence and global companies such as Boeing, Airbus, GE and UTC Aerospace. Bengaluru enjoys the most salubrious weather  throughout the year.


The National Welding Meet-NWM 2017 Bengaluru will be beneficial to personnel engaged in the Welding Process Technology in general and practicing Engineers, Professionals, Faculties, Managers and Supervisors from Fabrication Industries, Research Personnel, Academicians, Students, Power & Process Plant Maintenance Personnel, Manufacturers of Power Sources, Welding Consumables suppliers, Welding Equipment manufacturers, Skill development institutes on Welding etc.

You may submit technical papers in the areas such as Advanced Welding Processes, Special Welding techniques, Welding Productivity & Quality improvement techniques, Welding Equipment manufacturing, Welding Consumables, QA/QC of welds/fabrication, Welding Inspection, Skill Development & training on Welding, modern welding practices, standardization and certification of welding workshops, cutting techniques for welding and related case studies.

We cordially invite you to be our delegate to support  this excellent knowledge sharing event. Your wholehearted support can make this meet a resounding success.
