ESAB Supports Ironworkers 2016 Instructor Training

Every year, instructors from Ironworker Locals around the country gather for a week of training. This "train the trainers" event takes place at Washtenaw Community College, located about 30 minutes west of Detroit.

In addition to sending welding and cutting experts to the event to conduct training classes (see related story on Oxy-fuel Cutting Tips), ESAB brings in its demo trailer with all the latest technology on board, as well as has a "fun" night on Wednesday. This year, ESAB held a drawing for three Rebel welders, and the line nearly reached 100 yards long. After entering the Rebel drawing, many of the Ironworkers competed in our plasma cutting contest, won by Kevin Morin with a time of 18.36 seconds.
