Meet and Greet

Bob Moffatt, Host and Personality - Weld.com
uesday, November 6 at 10am


Not only is Bob one of the coolest old timers out there on Instagram and YouTube, he can lay down the smoothest weld bead you've ever laid eyes on - even doing it no look!

While Bob's main gig is Welding Instructor extraordinaire at Cowley College in Ark City, Kansas. But, you probably know him better as the Host and Personality of Weld.com, which boasts over 200k YouTube subscribers and churns out some of the best welding instructional video out there for welders of all skill level.

Whether it's Stick, MIG, TIG, or Plasma cutting, Bob can do it all and make it look a lot easier than it actually is. While his first love is welding pipe, there isn't a welding project Bob won't sink his electrode into, and he'll be ready to swap stories, give some of his patented sage advice, and drop a little knowledge on BINZEL torches (he is a fan!) for anyone who wants to drop by.

Hjalmar Aguilo
, Host and Personality - WeldTube
uesday, November 6 at 1pm

The fastest growing YouTube channel out there for welding educational videos, Hjalmar puts the style to the substance weekly with his pipe welding tutorials on WeldTube.

As Welding Supervisor for South Coast Welding Academy in Houston, Texas, Hjalmar is all about training the next generation of welding professionals in the red hot Houston welding area - where oil and pipe welding in Stick, TIG, and MIG process are king. 

Beyond the branch tests, boiler plate tubing, and Arkansas Bell Hole testing, Hjalmar and the folks at WeldTube engage their fans constantly with live Q&A's, Days in the Life, Events, Mashups with other YouTube weld stars, and field trips.

Hjalmar will be dropping by the BINZEL Booth on Tuesday afternoon to talk shop, answer questions, and give you his verdict on some of the BINZEL welding torches, which he's showcased multiple times on his WeldTube channel.

FABTECH 2018 Speaker Session

"Advancements in integrated optical quality monitoring systems for laser welding and brazing"
Jason Woolley
, Key Accounts Manager - Laser Group

One of the most important aspects of producing component parts for manufacturing is knowing the end result meets the welding/brazing specification.  In the past this was attempted by utilizing process emission technology.  Ultimately when this technology failed, a human inspector was added to ensure quality. 

Fast forward to today where machine learning solves this problem by monitoring the weld/braze result the same way a human does, using their eyes.  Learn about this exciting new real time technology that actually ensures quality and reduces the need for inspectors.

LIVE Demonstrations of our ROBOTIC SYSTEMS and Fume Extraction solutions 

This year's FABTECH will feature more live demonstrations at the ABICOR BINZEL booth than ever before!

1. Live Welding Cell featuring ABIROB® Cyclone® Endless Rotation MIG, Gas Management Solution EWR 2, and Torch Cleaning Station TCS Compact

If your welding operation is suffering from needing more cycle time, this live demonstration of the ABIROB Cyclone is one you cannot miss! Featuring true 360-degree rotation of the swanneck independent of the cable, the Cyclone torch can reach in and around the part and get back to the home position with virtually no stress to the torch cable. 

Improved cycle time and increased cable life. Combine the Cyclone with the Gas Management Solution EWR 2 - which saves 40% or more on Shielding Gas consumption, and the easy to use TCS Compact torch cleaning station, and you will have a welding cell that is fast, cost-efficient, productive, and durable.

Live demonstrations will occur hourly and on request each day throughout the show. Add us to your show itinerary here.
