Welcome To WeldFab'20

“Welding” is an essential part of everyday life and the use of welding in today’s technology is extensive. A few important applications of welding are for automobiles and locomotives (automobile frames, brackets, engine, front and rear hoods, under frame etc), Bridges, building, pressure vessels and tanks, storage tanks, piping and pipelines, ships, trucks and trailers, machine tool frame, cutting tools and dies, earth moving equipment and cranes etc.

India is poised to become a major manufacturing hub because of the relatively low cost of production, hence, there is an imperative need for the manufacturers to maximize profits without compromising on quality and by lowering manufacturing time and costs by introducing high productivity welding processes, cost-effective designs and reliable quality control methods. Welding is a process of joining different materials and the major portion of materials that are welded are metals & their alloys. Welding metallurgy is an important field because the welded material changes their microstructure and properties due to heat cycle associated with welding. Qualified and competent welding engineers with multidisciplinary knowledge are essential for the success of welding industry. Also, newer materials ranging from variations of existing metallic materials to advanced materials, composites, nano-materials and others have started. Welding of these materials poses technological challenges in welding fabrication, leading to the development of superior welding processes and quality assurance criteria.

With the launch of the ‘Make in India’ initiative by the Government of India, to transform India into a global design and manufacturing hub, developments in welding & fabrication Industry is the need of the moment to make Indian products globally competitive. The WeldFab'20 conference will provide a dynamic forum for the attending professionals from industry, academia, research institutions and service providers to share, enhance and utilize the knowledge base in Welding, Fabrication and allied technologies to fill up the gaps and attend the problems faced by the Industry.

The city has much to celebrate as it has already reached the milestone of completing 100 years as a Capital. With a history that goes back many centuries, All this is combined with the best features of a modern city such as a metro system, bustling markets and fabulous eating places. The past and the present meld seamlessly together, making centuries-old monuments a part of the city’s daily life. Even today, one can have a fascinating glimpse into the past in Old Delhi, with its labyrinth of narrow lanes, old havelis, and colourful bazaars. Rickshaws wind their way through this crowded, bustling capital of the Mughals. Central Delhi, with its tree-lined avenues, imposing structures and buildings such as the Rashtrapati Bhavan, Parliament House and India Gate, reflect Delhi’s colonial past. A number of museums provide a glimpse into the country’s fascinating history.

Besides the Metro, which connects all of Delhi’s landmarks to the city centre as well as most suburbs, the new, a fun way to explore Delhi is by booking Hop on- Hop off buses, better known as HO–HOs, have been introduced by Delhi Tourism for visitors who wish to tour the city in a single day.

No visit to Delhi is complete without an experience of its famed specialties such as its delicious curries, barbecued tikkas and kebabs. It is also a shoppers’ haven, whether you want to pick up some rich, woven silks, handicrafts, or ethnic cushions for your home. For cuisine of different Indian states and an array of Indian art and craft there are three Dilli Haats in Delhi at INA, Pitampura and the brand new Dilli Haat at Janakpuri.

So come and look out of the window and discover a whole new city of numerous stories and experiences.
