The award was presented by the Resistance Welding Manufacturing Alliance (RWMA), a standing committee of the American Welding Society (AWS).
The award recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the technology and application of the resistance welding process, which was invented in the late 1800s by Elihu Thomson, an associate of Thomas Edison.
The award recognized the numerous technical articles that Snow has contributed over the years to AWS’s Welding Journal and to several other publications focused on metalworking.
Publication of the articles led to opportunities for T. J. Snow Co. to offer seminars on the resistance welding process, which is widely used in manufacturing automobiles, appliances, aircraft, and fabricated wire products.
