Roll-Kraft's annual regional tube and pipe and roll forming training seminars held in Mentor, OH, drew nearly 70 attendees from 30 different companies, and several foreign countries, during the 2-day program.

Each seminar was conducted by Robert A. Sladky, Vice President of Tube Mill Engineering, and award-winning speaker on the various seminar topics. Additional speakers throughout the event included Chuck Summerhill, Vice President of Technical Sales, Bret Molnar, Senior Technical Advisor, and Dave Rostocil, Director of Product Applications.

The first day of the seminar was dedicated to the tube and pipe industry, providing detailed instruction on mill setup and tooling. The second day was tailored to roll forming companies, with similarly focused information. Both seminars included specific guidance, demonstrations and troubleshooting techniques for setups on the mill and improved production.

Mr. Sladky commented that the wide variety of companies, combined with the diversified experience level of the attendees, provided very good interaction during both days of presentations, with numerous questions and the opportunity to share real-life experiences.

Mr. Sladky went on to say that this is what these programs are all about, learning and sharing the experiences of the industry in order to develop a firm standard that leads to the production of quality products. This in turn builds unity and becomes a team effort at each plant, while at the same time drastically reducing scrap, and increasing profits.

Plant tours of Roll-Kraft's state-of-the-art facility in Mentor were also part of each of the two-day programs. The groups were welcomed and escorted by Roll-Kraft personnel through the factory to witness tooling being made and observe the various testing areas.

Roll-Kraft's web site contains information on upcoming seminars and workshops, as well as vast resources that include technical articles and videos for the tube, pipe, and roll form industry.
