The group develops new products, improves existing ones and provides technical support to the rest of the Welding Alloys Team and to customers.

 

  • Innovative structures & solutions for repair and maintenance
  • 2020 generation cored wies for heat resisting applications
  • Corrosion resistant alloy joining and cladding

 

The Research & Development Group maintains awareness of relevant safety legislation and regulations, it also arranges third party approvals on its products and it has an advisory role in production and quality control.


Core activities are defined by the principle of leading by innovation based on sound scientific and engineering foundations. This is made possible by expertise built up over half a century of continuous evolution and improvement. Welding Alloys has established a network of contacts including research organisations (TWI UK, Institut de Soudure, Universite de Nancy, European Welding Association EWA, International Institute of Welding IIW, International Standards Organisation ISO, etc.) This enables Welding Alloys to be aware of market trends and relevant technological innovations.


All necessary techniques, be it mechanical testing, chemical analysis (including gas content), structural analysis by optical and electron microscopy, corrosion and abrasive wear testing are readily available in support of Welding Alloys’s activities.

Welding Alloys Research & Development is actively supported by original equipment manufacturers (OEM’s), universities and customers.
