Peddinghaus Corporation was pleased to participate in the 10th National Steel Congress of the Chilean Steel Institute on August 13 and 14 in Santiago, Chile.
Over 100 fabricators and industry experts attended this two day event, which focused on the promotion and utilization of structural steel in the Chilean marketplace. This meeting represented the first time that the Institute opened this Congress to other industry participants.
Mr. Jose Cavazos provided an in-depth report on the latest technologies in structural steel fabrication. He spoke of new carbide technology for drilling of structural shapes and heavy plate. This is especially important for today’s structural steel fabricators and steel construction experts, who face increasingly tight deadlines for supplying fabricated members to the job site for each project.
