Center of expertise - Welding and cutting
Messer runs technical centre at the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences
Messer Group sets up a specialised technical center for the development of new welding and cutting technologies at the Hochschule Niederrhein. Close contact with the technical university’ materials and joining technology department is intended to further strengthen the exchange of specialist knowledge and joint work on innovative projects. In the process, the focus will be on the development of protective welding gas mixtures for diverse materials such as galvanised sheet metal, high-alloy steels and aluminium alloys. The technical center supplements the international network of other international technical centers for welding and cutting technologies run by Messer in Switzerland, Hungary and China. As a full-service provider, Messer oversees all processes for welding and cutting technology in which technical gases are used or can be used in future.
In Switzerland, Messer uses the technical center at Messer Eutectic Castolin Switzerland S.A., whose excellent facilities make it ideal for innovation projects as well as customer presentations and training in welding and cutting. Over and above the infrastructure of the technical centers, a network has been set up which allows the welding specialists from all the subsidiaries of the Messer Group to share their expertise and market experience, thereby making best use of the resources in the company.
