BLADE BUDDY™ is an innovative patent pending material handling implement which mounts to the leveling blade of an excavator and drastically increases it’s material handling volume capacity. Excavators have always been limited in their ability to carry more than what their digging or ditch bucket will carry…Until now! BLADE BUDDY™ is like a skid-steer bucket on steroids, and quickly mounts to most 5’ to 6.5’ excavator blades without the use of auxiliary hydraulics. Simply lift or lower the excavator blade to the rear mounts to attach or release the bucket. The 40” deep unit has a uniquely engineered center mounted cradle system which allows it to be lifted and displaced with a full load of material. Twin position pins allow the unit to go from discharge to carry position in seconds and also allows the contents to be scooped, dumped, spread, loaded and much more. BLADE BUDDY™ has also introduced “Load Support Brackets” which are removable mounted extensions positioned on both sides of the front of the unit to facilitate carrying long length items such as logs and timbers. BLADE BUDDY™ is sure to be an eye opener for much of the landscape contractor market as it is an affordable material handler which can drastically improve the versatility of compact excavators and eliminate the necessity of having 2 machines on the job site. “We did some of the initial field testing for the BLADE BUDDY™ and immediately saw all the benefits this unit had to offer”, says Brent Cadarette, owner of a landscape company. “I was easily able to manage much more material in a single trip without the use of an additional machine. This unit allowed us to work faster, cleaner, and be more efficient on the job site. Definitely a great investment for my business.” BLADE BUDDY™ is manufactured in Canada with American steel and certified to both the Canadian Welding Bureau, and the American Welding Society. BLADE BUDDY™ will be available for sale in Canada and the USA in the fall of 2017. A 38” wide model for micro excavators will be available Jan 2018. Additional product information is available at http://www.bladebuddy.ca and the official promotional video can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qaX5-qbKk6U

With time remaining, he also will answer audience questions about his life, business and building hot rods. Matthew Luhn, one of the original story creators at Pixar Animation Studios, will speak on Wednesday morning. Luhn will discuss how audience members can inspire creativity in the workplace by revealing how Pixar built and has sustained its creative culture. In doing so, he will share strategies on how to create a company culture that encourages and nurtures new ideas, and embraces fear and failing as part of the creative process.

The American Welding Society was founded in 1919. Since then AWS has strived to move the industry forward in both thinking and action, as well as inspire future generations to see the exciting career opportunities available today. This conference included sessions on innovative pipe welding technologies, welding automation, new technology for welding both ferrous and non-ferrous materials and additive manufacturing. The presentations included the information on the welding technology implemented in shipyards in the US and other international locations. The US Navy recently got the go-ahead to expand its current fleet of 275 to 355 deployable ships over the next decade. This means that thousands of U.S. jobs are up for grabs now and the economic impact will be tremendous. Uniweld Products, Inc. understands the impact this will have in the industry, and it is without a doubt for Uniweld to have a presence here and working closely with AWS going forward. "We need to be there to provide our support for AWS and the welding community," says Frank Vargas, Uniweld's customer service manager. During the exhibit Uniweld had the chance to introduce to the market the 30ATT-21 and 30ATT-13, the new tip-mix style Trigger Torch which is made specifically for the shipyard industry and is 100% made in the USA. The Trigger Torch comes with two different lengths in 13" and 21" with options to have different head angles. This newest, simplified variation of a shipbuilding-industry favorite combines the latest, safest tip-mix technology, with gas-flow design, lightweight and high-powered cutting capacity. Uniweld Products, Inc. has manufactured quality welding and cutting equipment at its factory located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida U.S.A. since 1949. Refrigeration manifolds & hoses, vacuum pumps, tubing tools, nitrogen kits, cutting torches, welding handles, cutting attachments, pressure regulators, pressure gauges, cutting tips and welding tips are among the products manufactured at Uniweld's factory in Fort Lauderdale.
