A news item that ran in the November 9th issue of the IH MagEzine
caused me to start thinking about job opportunities in our industry.
The story said that there is an acute shortage of welders in Louisiana
and throughout the country. While I am aware that there is a bit of a
shortage of qualified metallurgists and materials engineers entering
the field, I was surprised by and concerned about the impact of a
shortage of welders.
The January 2017 issue of Industrial Heating features our cover story on a horizontal quench system, the importance of materials science in failure analysis, a new quarterly column, Academic Pulse, and much more.
