Iron & Steel Preservation (ISP)

Save the date: March 9 and 10, 2015

Information on the 2015 conference is coming soon.

Contact Vern Mesler at meslerv@lcc.edu or 517-614-9868 for more information.

Lansing Community College will be offering individual and group training in the repair, rehabilitation and restoration of metals through workshops and courses. The industrial tools demonstrated are used in industry today: Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW), Oxygen Fuel Welding (OFW), Oxygen Fuel Brazing, flame straightening of wrought iron and steel, and field riveting used in the preservation of historic bridges and buildings.

 A two day welding course "Repair, Rehabilitation, and Restoration of Metals" is scheduled at Lansing Community College for October 24th and 25th, 2014, designed for individuals who are involved with arc welding activities that require the knowledge of welding processes and who may be responsible for writing an effective Welding Procedure Specification (WPS).

Featured in the course are hands-on activities and instruction about the essential variables (voltage, amperage, and other operating parameters) for:

  • Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW)
  • Metal Cored Arc Welding (MCAW)
  • Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW)

The arc welding processes demonstrated during the course are widely used in industry today. This course will give participants a better understanding and greater sensitivity toward existing metal structures and fabrication technologies, providing rare hands-on experience in the repair, rehabilitation and restoration of metal structures using careful application of welding technology.

Register at (517) 483-9853 or BCI@lcc.edu

  • Date: October 24 & 25, 2014
  • Time: 8:00am - 5:00pm
  • Cost: $611.00/participant
  • Location: Lansing Community College, West Campus Welding Lab, Lansing, Michigan
  • A 1.45 CEU certificate for both days will be issued at the end of the second day of the course.

Those attending an ISP will learn through lectures and demonstrations trades and skills used in the preservation of historic metals.  The industrial tools that are demonstrated are used in industry today: Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW), and Oxygen Fuel Welding (OFW), and flame straightening of wrought iron and steel. The ISP is of benefit even to those for whom historic preservation projects represent a relatively small percentage of their work, as the skills learned at the ISP are also valued for repair, maintenance, and new construction.
