CADWELD rail training

We had another full house for our quarterly CADWELD training. This time, we welcomed staff from ANSALDO who are the rail specialists on the major mining projects in WA, namely Rio Tinto and Roy Hill.

Various moulds, handle clamps and CADWELD connections were demonstrated and practised on. As the participants were from the rail industry, we simulated the CADWELD rail bonding welds on a piece of rail. This enabled participants to apply it to a real-life situation.

Once again, the participants were impressed by the ease and effectiveness of CADWELD. There are a number of good ERICO CADWELD videos that you can view on YouTube. For future WAPP Training, please click here.
