Lucas-Milhaupt Inc. is set to continue its regional training program in brazing with Fundamentals of Brazing. Lucas-Milhaupt Inc. is a Handy & Harman company located in Milwaukee. There are two seminars scheduled currently. One is being held at the Sheraton Chicago O'Hare Airport in Rosemont, Illinois July 26-28. The other one is being held September 27-29 in Orange County, California at the Crowne Plaza Irvine.
The seminar lasts for two and a half days. Attendees receive hands-on experience and in-depth information covering the latest in brazing techniques. Brazing fundamentals are presented with practical insight and the seminar also covers the foundations of brazing. Case studies are presented and both theoretical aspects and real life applications are addressed. The seminar helps individual welders understand what variables can affect brazing quality and easily manage the day to day brazing operations that they handle. The seminar also will talk about methods a welder can use to lower the overall costs of joining metal. Some of the highlights from the seminar are courses in heating methods, base metals, joint inspection, the corrosion resistance of filler metals, six fundamentals of brazing, and terms and definitions.
The course is designed for managers, designers, engineers in manufacturing, processing, and quality, personnel who do brazing operations, and production supervisors. Those who have completed the course will be able to increase efficiency, control costs, eliminate rejects, and reduce the number of field failures. Anyone who is at any level of experience in brazing can benefit from the seminar. Part of the benefit of the seminar is that sharing problem applications to get others to evaluate and discuss them is encouraged.
