AWS Professional Welders Competition
The American Welding Society (AWS) was founded in 1919 as a nonprofit organization with a global mission to advance the science, technology and application of welding and allied joining and cutting processes, including brazing, soldering and thermal spraying.
As part of its FABTECH activities, AWS will host a Professional Welding Competition on November 6 and 7 during show hours in Hall B, Booth B32110. Professional welders can sign up onsite to compete for a $2,500 first prize, a $1,000 second prize, and a $500 third prize. Don’t miss the chance to cheer on competitors as they demonstrate their skills to earn the title of “Best Welder in America.” Contestants will make a single-pass SMAW weld with E7018 on low-carbon steel. Speed and quality will be the criteria. Announcement of winners at 10:30 AM on Wednesday, November 8.
