Industry experts will deliver the latest research and innovations in both the Shipbuilding and Aluminum industries. Aluminum is one of the most versatile and widely used metals in manufacturing. However, its unique chemical and physical properties can also make it one of the most challenging to weld. The critical importance of welding in the shipbuilding industry will also be addressed by providing current information on emerging technologies being developed for shipbuilding applications.
