The Defense Metals Technology Center (DMTC), along with Edison Welding Institute (EWI) and Stark State College, will hold a titanium welding workshop on March 13 for academic, industrial and other interested parties to train in the specialized techniques of working with this unusual metal.
The workshop will be held at the Stark State Advanced Technology Center from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Continental breakfast and lunch are included in the $65 registration fee.

Titanium is experiencing a renewed level of interest as the metal of choice in many industrial and military applications because it is abundantly available, lighter than steel, as strong as steel, and does not rust or corrode. The welding of titanium entails specialized techniques.

The mission of the DMTC and this workshop is to heighten awareness of the potential of titanium and to encourage expanded use and improved manufacturing techniques, making it a more economical metal for military use. The titanium industry is centered in Northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania.

'We have available the technical expertise at EWI and the academic training facilities at Stark State to bring about the highest level of awareness and support of our metals industrial base and workforce training,' said Charles Clark, DMTC executive director.

'Based upon the interest level and indications of industry need for such advanced training, this workshop might precipitate a much expanded welding curriculum and dedicated facilities at Stark State College,' added Dr. John O'Donnell, Stark State College president.

The workshop will cover the history of titanium and evolution of its welding techniques, a review of the various applicable techniques of welding this metal, presentations by current industrial practitioners and a demonstration by EWI utilizing virtual welding techniques.
