Workshop on:

Tube Making
Tubes, Tubular Products, and Pass Reduction Schedules*

March 7th - 9th
Comfort Suites, Bethlehem, PA  (tentative)

Seminar Leader: Dr. Betzalel (Betz) Avitzur

  

* (See Ch.9 of the "Handbook of Metal-Forming Processes" by B. Avitzur)

General Information:

(Registration forms will be posted when scheduling will be complete.)

Registration Policy:

Registration fee is $1,500 for a single registrant.

Two or more registrants entitle an organization to a $150 discount for each person registered ($1,350/ea).

This cost includes attendance, luncheons, dinner banquet on the second day, and a copy of the text manuscript.

Attendance is limited, therefore to ensure pre-registration, a deposit of $200/ea. should be received no later than two weeks before the date of the workshop. Full payment at least two weeks before the seminar date will ensure registration.

Cancellation and Refund Policy:

If participation is cancelled and notice served properly, no less than two weeks prior to the seminar date, fees paid will be returned, less a non-refundable charge of $100.

Fees will be fully refunded if the seminar is cancelled by Metalforming Inc., in which case a notice of cancellation will be mailed to the individual participants, and posted on the website.

Hotel Accomodations:

A block of rooms will be secured for participants at the following hotel:

Purpose:

This seminar is designed for engineers, advanced technicians and technical managers who deal with manufacturing or processing. Past seminars were found to be most effective as a training tool for new plant engineers, or transferees from other departments. It provides the needed background training in the fundemental concepts of tube making.

The faculty of the workshop will provide a working knowledge of these processes. This course will convey to the participants a basic understanding of the mechanics of these processes and methods for process optimization and product improvement. The use of computer modeling will be presented for tube sinking, and as an aid to the understanding of the parameters of the floating plugs. A computer software packages will be demonstrated.

Emphasis will be placed on computer modeling and control. Demonstration and "hands-on" experience in the use of PCs in a user-friendly, interactive method of modeling will be provided.

There will be time set aside for open discussions, as well as question and answer sessions.

For more information, see the pages describing alternative tube making processes.
