Richard honored with International Meritorious Award

TWI’s Group Manager for Industrial Members and Key Accounts, Richard Freeman is due to be honored as a co-recipient of the International Meritorious Certificate Award, which is sponsored by the American Welding Society (AWS).

The award is conferred as a reflection of “service to the international welding communityâ€? and is given in recognition of significant contributions to the worldwide welding industry.

Richard’s work with AWS D17 recently saw him work to ensure the friction stir welding (FSW) specification AWS D17.3 successfully passed a ballot to be published for the 3rd edition of the specification. This is critical for the continued use of the FSW in the space and military aircraft industries. He has also been working on progressing the specification for fusion welding in the aerospace industry as part of his work with the AWS D17.1 committee.
