COLUMBUS, OH-The Edison Welding Institute (EWI) is teaming up with the Materials Science and Technology Division at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL, Oak Ridge, TN) to work on new welding technologies.

"EWI and ORNL are delivering precisely what U.S. manufacturing needs, an understanding of applied technology underpinned by a knowledge of the fundamental sciences that will stimulate new ideas and accelerate time to market," says EWI President, Henry Cialone. "Our goal is to develop methods and technologies that help our customers in all industries, including medical, aerospace, heavy manufacturing, pipeline and energy."

"ORNL's computational modeling capabilities are among the world's best," says Stan David, ORNL Corporate Fellow and leader of the lab's Materials Joining Group. "These new facilities will be crucial to the advancement of welding technology."
