Time Sensitive Announcement

The National Center for Welding Education and Training (Weld-Ed)
was founded in 2007 through a $5 million grant from the
National Science Foundation.

It is a national partnership between the welding and materials joining industry and technical colleges and universities.

It is dedicated to expanding the role of welding technicians in the industry.

Readers are urged to explore the following offer which may provide tangible benefits and gains to the Professional Development of
Welding Educators.

Those eligible for inclusion in the circle of Participants
will enjoy a mind opening experience likely to establish
their Professional Advancement on a promising new base.

Weld-Ed Announces
Professional Development Workshops for Welding Educators.

Mid March Bulletin_83

Adaptive Control Resources

This Bulletin_83 introduces Online Resources on Adaptive Welding Process Control.

The subject was briefly dealt with in our page on
Welding-control for automatic operation.

Here, in this Bulletin_83 we list online resources on these developments, which are much needed in different industries.

The needs stem from the requirements of increased production with limited human resources while assuring an ever improving quality level and reasonable prices.

Some of the published online Resources referred here can be downloaded at no cost.

The references published in this Bulletin_83 are selected to provide useful knowledge to our readers.

Some of the sources are Commercial Companies, presenting their services or goods together with technical advice.

No endorsement or recommendations of such offers is intended.

Readers should check if such information meets their purposes and needs.

The addresses reported hereafter in this Bulletin_83 were live and correct at the time of their publication.

There is no guarantee that they will always be so, because they are administered by the sources themselves and are under their control.

Note: References to articles or other documents are given here in one of two forms. If the links are "live" (usually underlined or otherwise highlighted) they are operated with a click of the mouse.

If they are URL's (Uniform Resource Locator), which is the analogue of an address, they begin with "http://..." or "www.". These are not live and must be copied and pasted entirely into the browser (after having selected them with the mouse or otherwise).

If they are long they may be displayed in two or more lines.
In that case one has to care that the URL be copied completely
in a single line without any space, and Enter.

If the information is important to you, you may save the downloaded selected pages in a suitable folder on your Computer for easy reference.

You are welcome to forward this Bulletin_83 Resources page to those of your friends who may profit of this information.

The first Reference reported hereafter is readily downloadable, but it is offered at a modest price.

It is however most important information for those willing to understand in some depth some of the problems affecting the development of solutions.
