Roll-Kraft’s Regional Tube and Pipe and Roll Forming Seminars Exceed Expectations
Over 100 attendees came together for Roll-Kraft’s recent tube and pipe and roll forming training seminars in Mentor, OH.
Mentor, OH (PRWEB) August 10, 2011
Attendees from all across the U.S. and Canada gathered in Mentor, Ohio, to learn from Roll-Kraft’s internationally recognized tube and pipe and roll forming instructors during day-long tube and pipe and roll forming training sessions.
Robert A. Sladky, Vice President of Tube Mill Engineering at Roll-Kraft, led the sessions, along with Technical Sales Engineer, Bret Molnar; Vice President of Operations, Chuck Summerhill; and Director of Product Applications, Dave Rostocil.
The speakers covered the important areas of mill integrity, alignment, tooling design, proper setup, and trouble shooting. A bonus presentation each day on Finite Element Analysis (FEA) was included in the sessions. The PowerPoint presentations, combined with “follow along” seminar guide books, and hands-on displays, resulted in one of the most comprehensive training programs to date.

“The audience participation was exceptionally interactive throughout both programs,” Sladky commented. “Additionally, many new companies looking to enter into the tube and pipe and roll form industries were also present. This entry-level interest, along with the high numbers of attendees from established companies, is good news for the industry.”
The mix of participants in attendance included personnel from management, engineering, and maintenance, as well as operators and their helpers.
Each day was concluded with a tour of Roll-Kraft’s state-of-the-art facility in Mentor, OH.
