The Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) 2013 Summer Conference will be taking place 7-10 August in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and will focus on product quality, specifically through certification, testing and in-house quality systems.
The conference will focus on product quality, specifically through certification, testing and in-house quality systems, with presentations by Dan Braun (Architectural Testing) on NFRC 706, IG certification requirements for thermal performance and current prequalification strategies under development at IGMA.
The Thursday session will feature “Current Failure Trends in the Industry”, presented by Bill Lingnell, Lingnell Consulting Services and IGMA Technical Consulting. Additionally, Mike Burk (Quanex), an adult education specialist, will lead a hands-on training session titled “In-House Testing for Manufacturing Facilities.”
“Continuous quality improvement can lead to a higher ﬁrst-time pass rate on Insulating Glass certiﬁcations,” says Margaret Webb, IGMA Executive Director.
The talk will focus on key failure modes and in house testing throughout the insulating glass production that can help improve end product quality and consistency.
