Roll-Kraft recently conducted a regional tube and pipe training seminar in Ontario, Canada. The program had outstanding attendance from over a dozen tube and pipe mill companies throughout Canada and from the United States.

The itinerary included new tube and pipe training techniques for 2013 which covered key areas of:

  • Mill Integrity and Alignment
  • Roll Design (including considerations for stainless steel)
  • Proper Tube and Pipe Mill Setup
  • Copra FEA RF Software - FEA Finite Element Analysis
  • Tooling Maintenance Programs

Keynote speakers for the event were Robert A. Sladky, Vice President Tube Mill Engineering, and Bret Molnar, Senior Technical Advisor for Roll-Kraft. The event also hosted a tour of Roll-Kraft's Canadian plant in Woodbridge, Ontario.

Sladky noted that the audience was a good mix of personnel and experience, which included owners, presidents, supervisors, mill operators, maintenance, tool room personnel, and quality departments. Experience levels ranged from those with decades of experience to those who had literally only days on the job.

Molnar commented that the feedback from the audience was outstanding throughout the entire day, even at the break and lunch times, with a thirst for even more information on tooling design for exotic materials beyond stainless and titanium.

Roll-Kraft's next regional seminars will take place in August in Mentor, OH at the LaMalfa Holiday Inn. Each event will be preceded by a tour of Roll-Kraftís headquarters. Follow the links below for more information and registration:
