On Thursday, May 17, ASM International presented FIA Member Weld Mold Company with its prestigious ASM Historical Landmark Award. Attending the event were ASM International dignitaries, distinguished representatives from the city of Brighton and state of Michigan, members of the press, Weld Mold officials and employees, and other invited guests. The Weld Mold Company was recognized for developing and innovating the flood welding process for weld die repair. Weld Mold Company Founder Matt Kiilunen was personally responsible for innovating the process, which took die repair to the next level–increasing die life while reducing customer costs.
From the Statue of Liberty to the Eiffel Tower in Paris, ASM Historical Landmark Awards recognize sites and events that have played a prominent role in the discovery, development and growth of metals, metalworking and all engineered metals. Familiar company recipients have included AT&T, Republic Steel and General Motors.
Congratulations to the Weld Mold Company on receiving this prestigious award!
