Hobart Brothers Co., Troy, Ohio, has opened a training center at its Troy plant to address new filler metal systems along with safety and health practices.
The training center is used to educate distributors, end users, and employees on optimal application and use of the company's filler metals, which include Hobart, Tri-Mark, Corex, and McKay brands. The center uses welding power sources supplied by Miller Electric Mfg. Co., Bernard GMAW guns, Weldcraft GTAW torches, and Smith Equipment gas regulators.
Process and product courses cover GMAW, GTAW, SMAW, and filler metal education and techniques such as hardsurfacing. Classes include hands-on lab exercises that simulate jobsite applications.
