II Pan-American Meeting on Welding and Joining Technologies

The Pontifical Catholic University of Peru, the Peruvian Institute of Production - ITP and SOLDEX S.A., with the sponsorship of the American Welding Society - AWS, the International Institute of Welding - IIW and the Spanish Association of Welding and Joining Technologies - CESOL invite you to take part of the II Pan-American Meeting on Welding and Joining Technologies, event that will be a part of the IV International Conference on Welding and Joining of Materials - ICONWELD 2018 from August 06 to 08 in the facilities of the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru in Lima.

With the Pan-American Meeting on Welding and Joining Technologies title, it aims to continue the work made in the first meeting; looking to assemble the academic community in topics of welding to debate and share the ultimate knowledge in the current welding juncture.

The first Pan-American Meeting on Welding and Joining Technologies was realized in October, 2014, in Sao Paulo - Brazil, inside development framework of the XL National Congress of Welding, in hand with the Brazilian Association of Welding (ABS). It was trying to assemble, for the first time, uniting the efforts of the implied Institutions, three key bodies for the development of the Latin America  region (LATAM), in the field of welding: Brazilian Association of Welding (ABS); Spanish Association of Welding and Joining Technologies (CESOL) and the International Institute of Welding (IIW), who respectively took over of the calling and the infrastructure; the support and contents, from the European perspective and dean of the Hispanic ones and, not forgetting for its strategic vision, the international institutional support, to the promotional concrete event.

This 2018, the II Pan-American Meeting on Welding and Joining Technologies has raised new objectives, among them.

  • Share the activities of the IIW.

  • Raise the number of countries members of the IIW. Today, only Brazil; Mexico and Peru, are effective members of the IIW, which entails the lack of an Spanish-speaking coordinated voice.

  • Promote the best international recognized practices of welding, focusing in the important, little involved, LATAM region.

  • Congregate the major quantity of LATAM's personnel involved in the training and certification in welding, as well as in the design, manufacture and quality control of welded joints.

  • Congregate companies and LATAM's productive centers.

  • Spread the international standards (ISO 3834), of quality in welding, specific to certify companies.
