The Future is NOW proved to be the dominant theme at the NASCC Conference in New Orleans April 18 -20. Not only was technology at the forefront of discussions - and machine demonstrations - but also the lack of skilled labor in the fabrication shop came into sharp focus.
Peddinghaus Corporation played an instrumental role in identifying and resolving key issues that are affecting the structural steel shop environment. The Peddinghaus approach to addressing these issues at the NASCC was in the following areas:
- "Will Technology Change Your Fabrication Shop" Panel Discussion initiated by Mr. Michael Sharp, President of Peddinghaus Corporation
- "Fab Shop of the Future - THE FUTURE IS NOW: a key exhibit on the floor with a fully operational Thermal Processor for structural profiles: The Ring of Fire
- An education tour of three premier structural steel fabrication facilities in Louisiana for a first hand observation of latest fabrication techniques
