Roll-Kraft recently hosted its annual regional tube and pipe and roll forming training seminars in Mentor, Ohio. This year's event was attended by more than 60 companies from all over the United States, Canada, Mexico, and as far away as Korea.

Many companies sent several attendees. Both seminars included tours of Roll-Kraft's state-of-the-art corporate facility in Mentor.

Seminar attendees included operators, maintenance and quality personnel, supervisors, and management of varying experience levels in the tube and pipe and roll forming industries.

Robert A. Sladky, Vice President of Tube Mill Engineering for Roll-Kraft, was the organizer of the event, as well as one of the speakers for each of the two programs.

Sladky said, "Demand for our regional seminars, as well as for our in-house programs at customer locations, has dramatically increased over the past two years, and attendance continues to grow, with programs booked well into 2019. In this day and age, it is encouraging to see new businesses starting up, instead of shutting down."

"Today's market demand for quality products is at an all-time high, and companies need to get it right the first time," Sladky added. "There is no room or time for reworks or doing it over, especially with the increased cost of raw material. This is one of the primary reasons the audience comes to these sessions - to learn to improve their operations."

In past years, attendance at tube and pipe training sessions offered by Roll-Kraft had outnumbered the roll form training sessions. However, 2018 has seen a more equal demand for training in both industries.

Roll-Kraft's training programs - both regional seminars and in-house training sessions - focus on developing a standard for all to follow in the areas of mill integrity, alignment, setup, and tooling maintenance.

In addition to giving the audience an understanding of the equipment, tooling, and processes for their industry, the primary focus is to get all employees "on the same page," performing their duties in a predictable, repeatable fashion in order to minimize changeover and down times, while at the same time increasing production and profits.

This year's event incorporated even more interactive videos in each of the two presentations. These videos, along with numerous technical publications, can be found on Roll-Kraft's website, the most comprehensive, informative resource in the industry.
