Take a look under the hood, peek behind the curtain, see how the sausage is made: CEI's blog gives you a chance to check out the goings on behind the software, whatever your preferred idiom.

Spotlight - Fabtech 2016

Dec 07, 2016 by Antonio Howard
The event covered over 550,000 square feet of show space, with over 1300 vendors displaying their welding products to over 28,000 attendees. The show was held this year at The Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas NV, and was held from November 16 thru November 18th 2016. CEI was in attendance again showcasing our wide range of Welding Software, which included our Cloud Based and locally based code assisted product ProWrite.  ProWrite covers the ASME Section IX code as well as the AWS D1.1 code. We also showed our non-code assisted products that includes other welding documentation software that covers ASME Section IX, AWS D1.1, API 1104, and BS EN ISO along with some of our free welding utilities such as our weld cad, weld estimator, and NDE products giving tools to users that don’t necessarily need welding documentation software but could use something to make their jobs a little easier, proving that we have tools that can help at any level of the welding industry. 

The event itself was kicked off on Wednesday and ran thru Friday, giving the exhibitors and the numerous attendees that consisted of businesses owners, welding engineers, CWIs, welders, manufacturers, and welding students, an overabundance of things to do. As always, courses were held that covered the AWS D1.1 code as well as the API 1104 code. There were also several presentations that covered the welding industry given each day. And of course there was “The SHOW itself” which CEI was in full representation for.  Overall, the show was great!  If you wasn’t able to attend this year’s Fabtech show we recommend it a must see for next year, Nov 6 – 9, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL!
