A Global network of competent and reliable partners
Fronius has developed a “selling center” made up of sales and service teams (VSPs) to act as a counterpart to the customer’s buying center.
Electric sports car Quiantu K50
The series version of the high-tech electric sports car was launched on the Chinese market in August 2018. A high-tech vehicle calls for high-tech welding – from the Fronius TPS/i.
Troubleshooting between the lines
In an age of fully digitized welding systems, the software is at least as important for keeping things running smoothly as the actual hardware components.
A challenge shared is a challenge solved
In 2017, Fronius Perfect Welding asked users to share their unresolved welding challenges. At the end of November last year, the companyinvited the winners of the Welding Challenge Contest to Wels.
Ready for emergencies
Trumer protective systems can be found in hazardous areas all over the world, helping to ensure that events such as rockfalls and mudslides cause as little damage as possible.
A successful design adds value to a product, since intuitive operation is only possible if the function and design are considered as a whole.
Big data in welding technology
Even in welding technology, the collection and processing of relevant information opens up enormous potential for optimization. Read more here.
Data analysis improves welding
Modern welding systems record different types of information, which allows processes to be optimized. Fronius offers the data analysis system WeldCube.
Digitization has also arrived in industrial manufacturing. Prof. Christian Brecher explains the impact on production in an interview.
Calibrating welding systems
Maintaining quality standards for welding systems in the long term requires regular calibration. Read more about the procedure and the advantages.
