Registrations continue to come in for the IGMA IG Fabricators Workshop. The workshop, which leads attendees through the most important aspects of fabricating and testing IG units by the experts of our industry, features a balanced mix of classroom education along with hands-on demonstrations to discover best practices for cleaning, cutting and handling glass, desiccants, sealants, gas fill, frost point and much more. The Workshop has limited space available due to its hands-on nature and dedicated focus from instructors to give attendees the maximum attention for success.
Reviews of the three previous Workshops were incredibly positive:
“The group of experts you had were awesome. They were very attentive, welcoming and helpful.”
“The hands-on portion is awesome. Being able to take what was learned in a presentation and then apply it in real life was really effective.”
“Hosting the event at a testing facility is great… while participants may see the IGU processes discussed at each of the stations every day, they don’t always get to see the testing methods and apparatus conducted from a third party.”
The next Workshop will be held at the Intertek-ATI Testing lab in Plano, Texas from November 7-9th. Register now before the class fills up to attend and get immediate impact to your company’s bottom line. Modules include::
Workstation 1: Frost Point (Bill Lingnell, IGMA Technical Consultant)
Workstation 2: Glass Cutting (Bill Briese, GED Integrated Solutions)
Workstation 3: Spacer & IG Fabrication (John Kent, Insulating Glass Certification Council)
Workstation 4: Gas Filling (Randi Ernst, FDR Design)
Workstation 5: Desiccant / Desiccated Matrix (Shulin Cui, SliciaStar / Brian White, H.B. Fuller)
Workstation 6: Sealants (Steve Altum, Dow Corning; Paul Chackery, Fenzi NA; Mike Speicher, Royal Adhesives and Sealants)
Workstation 7: Volatile Fog (Jeff Haberer)
Workstation 8: Hands on training to determine logical failure mode of IG units outside of the glazed sash. The segment starts with the least intrusive visual inspection which, in many instances, can yield a root cause. If no root cause is determined from a visual inspection the next logical step is unit deconstruction. IG unit deconstruction will follow a methodical approach to yield a logical cause of failure.
