The welding department has aquired a plasma beveling machine which incorperates a large lathe chuck & a plasma cutter. This saves time by cutting & beveling different sizes of pipe rather than using a metal cutting saw. Plasma cuts take on average about ten seconds rather than five minutes by a saw. Drop by the morning class & see it in operation.
The welding department would like to welcome Eloy Morales as our newest Instructor. Eloy has 30 years of experience in pipe welding & will soon be in charge of the "advanced welding" pipe students in the morning & evening classes.
