Our Welding Centre General Manager Dr Michail Karpenko and Senior Welding Engineer Alan McClintock jumped the ditch to attend the International Institute of Welding 2016 Conference.

Held in Melbourne in mid-July the IIW conference – is a fantastic global forum of professionals from around the world sharing and developing scientific and technical knowledge on welding and related activities.

For our team, it was a great chance for to hear about emerging trends, understand challenges in the industry and how others are overcoming them – and of course where opportunities may lie for our members in the future!
