Yarbrough Industries recently attended a training by Airgas on “Unlocking The Hidden Costs of Welding”.
This class covered Gas Metal Arc Welding of mild steel using multiple metal transfer modes, including Short Circuit, Globular and Repelled Globular, Projected, Streaming and Pulse Spray.
The class taught our technicians better ways to identify and quantify weld quality standards to ensure our customers have only the best quality products. It also educated us on new ways to develop welding procedures that meet those standards, while increasing productivity and cost-effectiveness.
The course focused on training our welders, operators, supervisors and management on their specific applications to create an easier workflow. Quality standards were one of the most important aspects that were repeated because they impact both cost and productivity.
Training Yarbrough Industry technicians to become even better at their jobs means we can be more productive with less and pass those cost savings on to our customers.
Treating welding as an exact science where all variables are tightly controlled helps each individual to consistently meet quality standards, ensuring a better final product. One of the goals of the class was to reiterate that they are a major player when it comes to helping their company or their customers. They learned that by adding metal when welding, it can be done as precisely and accurately as removing metal when machining. They were also given an opportunity to develop their own procedures which set the standards for quality.
As with anything worthwhile, the benefits received from something is in direct correlation with the effort and diligent work put into it. Thanks to this incredible training, customers can be assured that Yarbrough Industries will continue to meet the most stringent quality requirements and provide the best work at the lowest cost.
