Welding & Fabrication Technology (WeldFab2018), New Delhi, India

Conference & Exhibition on 'Welding & Fabrication Technology (WeldFab2018)' on 5-6 October 2018
Hotel Holiday Inn, New Delhi

'Welding' is an essential part of everyday life and the use of welding in today’s technology is extensive. With the launch of the ‘Make in India’ initiative by the Government of India, to transform India into a global design and manufacturing hub, developments in welding & fabrication Industry is the need of the moment to make Indian products globally competitive. Welding metallurgy is an important field because the welded material changes their micro-structure and properties due to heat cycle associated with welding. Qualified and competent welding engineers with multidisciplinary knowledge are essential for the success of the welding industry. Also, newer materials ranging from variations of existing metallic materials to advanced materials, composites, nano-materials and others has started. Welding of these materials posses’ technological challenges in welding fabrication, leading to development of superior welding processes and quality assurance criteria. The WeldFab 2018 conference will provide a dynamic forum for the attending professionals from industry, academia, research institutions and service providers to share, enhance and utilize the knowledge base in Welding, Fabrication and allied technologies to fill up the gaps and attend the problems faced by the Industry.
