AWS Pipeline Conference – March 4 & 5, 2014

Mar. 10, 2014

The second annual American Welding Society Pipeline Conference was held on March 4th & 5th, 2014 in Houston, Texas.  The Pipeline Conference provides a forum for presentations of various new and influential updates in the processes, materials, equipment and techniques used in the Pipeline Industry.  Over twenty persons provided detailed presentations on a wide range of subjects.  Mechanization of the pipeline welding process was a well-represented topic this year.

Bug-O Systems Technical Sales Manager and Applications Manager, Jeff Nelson was in attendance for all portions of the Conference.  Additionally, Bug-O Systems took the opportunity to provide a vendor’s display including the Piper Plus tractor and various pictures and literature representing documentation of actual projects where the Piper Plus System has been successfully implemented around the world.  Attendance and display at these various pipeline oriented conferences will continue as we continue to support the increase in mechanization of pipeline welding so that contractors can be more efficient in meeting this industry’s growing demands.
