Manufacturing has come back and more gains to come
The U.S. manufacturing sector is coming back, we learn from the Federal Reserve's industrial production report. Last month's gain was 0.9 percent, more than making up all the ground lost in the early months of this year. Looking forward, production will continue to expand, but don't expect a lot more factory jobs.

Pipeline Conference
Sept. 1-3, 2015
Hotel Monteleone
New Orleans, LA

Regional and transcontinental pipelines are a very efficient way to deliver chemical resources from upstream facilities to power plants, chemical plants, offshore facilities, maritime ports, and collection & distribution centers to name a few. This conference will discuss advances pipeline welding materials and technology. Higher strength materials are being qualified which can provide signicant cost savings and reliability. Innovative welding processes are being developed for these materials to assure toughness and fitness for service. Automated nondestructive test methods are being developed to assure quality, and support in-service inspection and repair. Join other industry leaders in the field, as the AWS Pipelines Conference explores new research, trends and applications for this growing discipline.

18th Annual Aluminum Conference
Sept. 22-24, 2015
Omni Hotel
San Diego, CA

A distinguished panel of aluminum-industry experts will survey the state of the art in aluminum welding technology and practice. The 18th Aluminum Welding Conference will also provide several opportunities for you to network informally with speakers and other participants, and to visit an exhibition showcasing products and services available to the aluminum welding industry. Aluminum lends itself to a wide variety of industrial applications because of its light weight, high strength-to-weight ratio, corrosion resistance, and other attributes. However, because its chemical and physical properties are different from those of steel, welding of aluminum requires special processes, techniques, and expertise.

Metal working discovery may help manufacturers
Manufactures Monthly
Researchers in the U.S. have found a previously unknown type of metal deformation and a method to suppress it that could make life easier for manufacturers. The researchers from Purdue University say that the discovery of the metal deformation called "sinuous flow" could lead to new opportunities in a range of manufacturing applications that involve metal deformation such as in machining, stamping, forging and sheet-metal processes.
