EFD Induction article wins award

A technical paper co-authored by two senior EFD Induction R&D engineers has won a prestigious International Tube Association (ITA) award at the recently concluded Tube Düsseldorf event.

Leif Markegaard and John Inge Asperheim, both of whom are based at the EFD Induction facility in Skien, Norway, were granted the ITA’s ‘Papers Award’ for co-authoring a technical article on seam annealing.

The paper, titled Parameters Influencing In-line Weld Seam Heat Treatment, was written together with two employees of Baosteel, the giant Chinese iron and steel manufacturer.

The award is granted by the ITA to honour the best technical paper presented at an ITA-endorsed conference during the past two years. The ITA is the world’s largest association of tube and pipe engineers, and a major presence in the global tube and pipe industry.
