23rd Technical Sessions on Welding and Joining Technologies
CVE Attend the 23rd Technical Sessions on Welding and Joining Technologies
This week, CVE are at the 23rd Technical Sessions on Welding and Joining Technologies, in Irun, San Sebastian, Spain. Running between the 7th and 9th March 2023, the conference serves as a meeting point for the exchange of knowledge among experts in the welding sector, as well as to update and contrast the opinions of the speakers and attendees. It also represents an opportunity for the dissemination of technical knowledge, offering a means for the development of new technologies in the field of joining technologies.
The session is organised by CESOL, the Spanish Association of Welding and Joining Technologies, an independent and non-profit association of people and companies at the service of welding and other joining technologies. CESOL was created in 1993, and is the result of the merger of ADESOL, the Spanish Association for the Development of Welding, created in 1977, and CES, the Spanish Centre for Welding and Joining Technologies, created in 1988.
CVE’s Development Engineering Manager, Alex O’Farrell, presented on the 7th March at the 1st Technical Session on Welding. His presentation was titled “Electron Beam Welding of Copper Electrical Conductors for Electric Vehicles.”
About the Conference
The main objective of the session is to disseminate the know-how of the latest achievements in the field of joining, coating, additive manufacturing and related processes like structural integrity, inspection, quality and environmental management.
The conference will offer welding professionals, their employers, scientists, fabricators and welding-products suppliers the best framework to exchange ideas and information, share knowledge resources, an establish a dialogue intended to open new research directions and to join together in partnerships for new projects development. This 23rd Sessions can be an opportunity to advance in the welding profession, its products and its practices and to continue driving the welding industry forward.
The topics covered include:
- New technologies in welding and cladding processes and their applications
- Materials joining processes
- New inspection techniques
- Mechanical behaviour of welded joints (fracture mechanical test, distortion and residual stresses)
- Design and modelling processes of welded joints
- Weldability of new materials
- Adhesive bonding and structural applications
- Characterization of materials
- Additive manufacturing
- Welding automation
- Failure analysis
- Health and safety (occupational exposures, welding fumes)
- Developments in personnel certification and welding codes
The following industries are also represented:
- Battery and electronics
- Energy and chemical
- Power generation and advanced energy
- Heavy manufacturing
