The Welding Institute hosts a programme of Technical Group Meetings throughout the year as part of a broad range of events promoted by TWI Ltd. They are divided into 8 technical groups focusing on the following topics:
With almost every fabricated item containing one or more welds, the joining processes technical group (also referred to as TG2) looks at all of the welding processes including arc welding, power beam, resistance and solid phase processes; application and control of welding processes; welding consumables; welding of pressure vessels, piping, structural steel; industrial productivity; automation and robotics; health and safety; computer software; welding applications; management and quality assurance systems; national and international standards; quality control; and acceptance criteria.
This technical group includes talks and presentations from leading industry experts within this field and also involves live Q&A sessions with those speakers.
The Welding Institute will be hosting this technical group online this year using a webinar format. The technical group event will also include live Q&A sessions with the speakers and due to the ease of access of the online structure, the events will also be shorter, therefore being more accessible for anyone to attend.
