International Welding Fair

19 - 21 October 2010

Welding Mania

This year's edition of the International Welding Fair ExpoWELDING, the biggest welding industry event in Central and Eastern Europe, is only a few days away now. It will be held under the patronage of the Ministry of Economy and the Institute of Welding in Gliwice.

The exhibition, which will showcase the offer of the leading producers of welding equipment, software and other associated tools, will be accompanied by a scientific conference devoted to advanced welding technologies, under the patronage of Prof. Józef Gawlik, PhD, the Chairman of the Mechanical Engineering Committee of the Polish Academy of Sciences. During the fair, some of the products will be presented live in the exhibition hall.

The visitors will also be able to see equipment presentations and other practical demonstrations of welding and oxygen cutting techniques. For example, ASTOR will present a flexible robotic station – Kawasaki UniCell – equipped with an industrial robot which maximally increases production efficiency and provides safe environment for the operator; Fronius will present TransSteel – semi-automatic machines for MIG/MAG and MMA welding, constructed on the basis of Steel Transfer technology; CRASh S.C. will exhibit SYSWELD - software for numerical simulations of heat treatment and welding processes using finite element analysis.  

Those who are trained in the craft of welding, may win the title of Welding Masters by participating in the competition held under the banner “Welding Mania”, in which the competitors will be evaluated for accuracy and precision in welding.

The most interesting and original products and solutions for the welding industry will be evaluated in another competition, whose winners will be awarded Expo Silesia Medals.

The representatives of firms, who deal not only in welding equipment, but also other in other metal industry areas, will certainly appreciate other exhibitions, which will be held at the same time under the roof of Expo Silesia - SteelMET - International Fair of Steel, Non-ferrous Metals, Technologies and Products, as well as SURFPROTECT - International Fair of Surface Protection. They will present modern appliances, machinery and polymerization technology, as well as methods for using electrolytic coatings for the protection of surfaces from abrasion.
