Roll-Kraft hosts regional Tube and Pipe Mill seminar in Waverly, Nebraska

After a long dry spell of over two years due to the pandemic, Roll-Kraft hosted its first regional seminar of the 2022 season in Waverly, Nebraska on May 3rd.

Robert A. Sladky, Vice President of Tube Mill Engineering for Roll-Kraft organized the event and was the key presenter/speaker for the session.  This year represents Robert’s 53rd year in the tube and pipe industry. 

Regional seminars of the many decades/years past have been held/conducted in numerous “regional” locations which include, California, Texas, Ohio, Canada, Mexico, and as in this past session, Nebraska.

The attendance for this year’s event set a record for the regional seminars previously held at the Nebraska location.   In attendance this year were 18 companies, and over 35 attendees.    They came from all four geographic corners, Canada, Mexico, South America, California, many eastern states, as well as companies from the state of Nebraska. Audience participation was outstanding and was encouraged throughout the entire day. 

Representation of Roll-Kraft’s sales and engineering from the corporate headquarters in Mentor, Ohio and CRC division in Chicago, were present for the event. 

The audience mix included operators, both seasoned and new, engineers, supervisors, management and some individuals that are brand new to the industry. 

All the important areas of mill integrity, alignment, proper setup, roll designs, tooling maintenance and a special presentation on FEA kept the audience attentive and engaged the entire day Sladky states. All in an effort to not only develop an understanding of the subjects listed above, but to develop a standard for all to follow, so everyone is on the same page, doing the same thing, working as a team towards the same successful efforts.  Not a day shift way, or a night shift way, or Tom’s way, or Joe’s way, but the right way, the right way that has been proven in the industry over and over again. There is no pie in the sky, or theory taught here, only the nuts and bolts of what really works out in the industry. Robert brings this “proven” experience to the table during these sessions.
