The machines department has had a busy start to 2017, in March the sales teams for machines and wires took part in SIFER 2017 (International Trade Fair for the Railway Industry) in Lille, France.
Last May, Welding Alloys Italiana participated in two important events in Italia:
- The Industrial Valve Summit in Bergamo
- The 5th Giornate Nazionali di Saldatura organized by the Italian Welding Institute in Genova
In early June, mining experts, salesmen, MDs and regional directors converged in Castelldefels, Barcelona, for Welding Alloys' first ever Integra Sales Meeting focussed on the mining industry. Combining our recent joint venture in Chile with Kupfer and the launch of Makuri Liner Technologies, Welding Alloys is rapidly becoming a global force in the mining industry.
The presentation Increase of lifetime and screening results by advanced hardfacing technologies by Jens Laskowski of Welding Alloys GmbH shows results of trials with new hardfacing technologies and their effect on the lifetime on screening systems.
Recently, we have added an additional two e-learning resources to the Welding Alloys Academy to provide training on the Welding Alloys Sales process and information for Sales Managers to further develop their skills.
In the early 1980s, stainless steel flux cored arc welding wires became very popular. These wires contained small additions of bismuth (Bi), often in the form of bismuth oxide (Bi2O3) to improve slag removal and help the welder. This is still common practice today, including for TETRA wires.
Chile is the largest copper producer and one of the main mining countries in the world. The mine is where you can see the greatest effects of abrasion since there is a considerable amount of movement of raw material, and the high volume and hardness causes equipment to wear, most notably equipment used for loading, transport, crushing, among others. As maintenance costs are becoming higher for hard rocks and downtime increases, those in the mining industry are constantly looking for better solutions.
Preparations are well underway for the Schweissen & Schneiden International Trade Fair for Joining, Cutting & Surfacing, being held in Dusseldorf from the 25th – 29th of September 2017. Welding Alloys Group will be located in hall 11, booth C24.
After several months’ work, we are very excited to announce the launch of our new website with a fresh new look and user-friendly navigation!
Welding Alloys USA has been putting a lot of emphasis and focus on the Sugar Industry by developing welding equipment, wires and electrodes to improve productivity and maintenance.
WA USA exhibited last week at the annual IEEE Technical Cement Conference in Calgary AB Canada from May 21st-25th, 2017.
The MultiSurfacer H-Frame is the perfect example of the flexibility of Welding Alloys machines; using standard parts and controls it is possible to manufacture equipment for a large number of applications.
As you all know, Welding Alloys Group launched in February a new approach to repair and extend the service lifetime of roller presses by presenting a new concept called RP MaxLife.
Welding Alloys Group is pleased to announce that we have launched our premium range of hardbanding cored wires.
