American Welding Society just unveiled One Of A Kind 3-dimensional art at their Miami, Florida headquarters to celebrate their 100th anniversary story. AWS is a nonprofit organization with a global mission to advance the science, technology and application of welding and allied joining and cutting processes. Until we were deep into research on the history of welding, did we appreciate the essential role of welding in everyday life? From bridges, cars, high-rise buildings, to pipelines, highways, airplanes, gates and small kitchen appliances, welding technology can be seen virtually everywhere. AWS wanted to reflect not only a century of history, but also the profession’s importance—past, present and future.
