Rapid Weld - Rapid but clean

The Rapid Weld process provides advantages wherever high deposition rates and optimum penetration depths at high process speed are required. It is particularly suited for manual and automated welding in sectors such as the heavy steel construction industry, shipbuilding and container construction.

Speed Weld - Special process for high-speed welding

The Speed Weld process is most suitable for joining components of thin to thick wall thicknesses. Good penetration depths and perfect side wall joints at high weld speeds are achieved by means of a focused pulsed arc with a scalable deposition rate. The Speed Weld process is used in all industrial production sectors.

Control Weld - Controlled thin plate welding

The Control Weld process supplies a uniform arc which is particularly advantageous when welding thin steel. The classic industries are automotive construction, electronics, vehicle construction, heating technology, white goods and furniture. This process can also be used for reliable repair welding throughout all industry sectors and allows for welding under pure CO2.

Cold Weld - Welding with minimum heat input

By using a negative phase, targeted heat-placing control is possible during the Cold Weld process which allows a very low heat input. This "cold" arc welding allows optimum control of the welding process. The thermal loading of base material is reduced and the origin material characteristics remain nearly unchanged. Thus a high weld seam quality at a good gap briding ability and increased weld speed can be achieved. The Cold Weld process is mainly used for thin to medium plate thicknesses.

Tandem Weld - The process for more productivity

Two in-line wire are fed simultaneously and melted in two arcs. Due to the consequent separation of the two electrical cicuits the arc can be controlled in detail. Enormous efficiency, low heat input, excellent weld seam quality and the very high deposition rate are the great advantages of the Tandem Weld process.

Laser Hybrid Weld - As efficient as never before

Compared to traditional Tandem and MAG welding, considerable savings in production time and filler material are possible. Single pass weld seams can be welded without preparation even in the case of thick plate with material thicknesses of more than 10 mm. Moreover a high weld speed can be reached even when welding thin plate. It is not only the automotive industry that demands high-quality weld seams: due to the minimum rework required, the MIG/MAG Laser hybrid welding process is also of interest to companies manufacturing components for commercial vehicles, railway carriages and construction machinery.

Duo Pulse - Alternating arc weld for rippled weld seam surface

The Duo Pulse process creates outstanding weld surfaces and ensures a reliable weld seam quality. The change of heat input in the arc results in a uniformly rippled weld seam surface which means that rework on visible welds is minimised. The furniture and electrical industrial sectors, and aviation, automotive and motorcycle industries are all suitable application areas.
