Fundamentals of Wire Manufacturing: Practices - Interwire, May 14-19, 2005 in Atlanta, GA

Get back to the basics with this two-day course. You'll learn the central practices of wire manufacturing as shared by a team of nine instructors who are experts in their respective disciplines. This course is the second of three phases, however, the program is organized so that students can enter the series at any point.

If you work on the operational or technical side or are newcomers to the industry, you'll leave with a complete understanding of the basics. The instructional format - which segments students into ferrous, and nonferrous and electrical groups - insures that each sector is covered completely.This means you'll spend time learning about what applies specifically to you. Designed for students with various levels of knowledge, the course allows you to learn through participation in exercises, examples, and case studies. Operational and technical personnel welcome.

Day one:
Four general topics (two hours each) will be covered on the first day that are applicable to the wire and cable industry, i.e., drawing machines, lubricants, wire straightening, and measurement controls.

Day two:
On the second morning instructors cover sector-specific topics (four hours each), and then the group will reassemble in the afternoon for a combined session featuring general discussion and a question and answer forum with all presenters on hand.

Course subtopics and speakers are shown below by order of presentation:
