First Congress for Flat Roof Quality Management in Würzburg - Review & Preview
The first congress for flat roof quality management took place in Würzburg, Germany, March 7 – 8, 2018. Roland Beeler, head of business line for plastic fabrication, roofing and flooring, attended the congress on Leister’s behalf. You now can read his news about the congress and all about flat roofs in "LEISTER Stories."
Leister is the first founding member of IQDF
Leister is the first founding member and new board member of the Interest Group for Quality Management for Roofs and Flat Roofing (IQDF). IQDF's first congress was aimed at redefining the quality standards of the flat roof industry in order to achieve better quality management.
Interesting networking platform
The 165 participants―reviewers, experts, material manufacturers, roofing companies and specialists―met on this networking platform and benefited from each other's high level of expertise.
Presentation by Roland Beeler: “Seam Joining of Plastic Seals.”
Roland Beeler gave an interesting presentation on the welding of thermoplastic membranes and current topics. "The demand for high-quality roofs is increasing. The focus is on documenting and recording the welding work. In addition, the open flame is increasingly being called into question because the fire risk is too high. The trend is away from manual welding and towards automatic welding."
Guide to welding with "Leister Quality System" (LQS)
There is great interest in quality management for flat roofs. At the congress, Leister was commissioned to produce a guide to welding with LQS for work on flat roofs. All IQDF members will receive the guide automatically. Afterwards, the guide will be made available to the public as a download from our website.
Quality management is at the focus of the guide, because it is important that users know when and whether their welding seam is tight.
Once the guide is available for download, we will alert you via Facebook. Follow Leister Technologies AG on Facebook and receive all important information automatically.
Preview - 2nd Congress in 2019
With positive feedback from the congress participants, a second IQDF congress is planned for next year.
