» We often work to tight deadlines and therefore always need to be ready to go. We cannot afford for our systems to fail. Thanks to the proximity of the regional Fronius service centers, we can always rely on quick, solution-based support, which gives us a great deal of reassurance. «Josef Neuheimer, Managing Director
“Due to the hygiene standards in the food industry, joints have to be completely free of germs and easy to clean,” explains Josef Neuheimer, managing director of SMGE. SMGE installers generally use stainless steel for commercial kitchens. Stainless steel produces outstanding visible welding seams that ensure easy-to-clean and germ-free surfaces. The TIG process is an additional prerequisite as it leaves no pores.
In addition, every employee at SMGE has to be able to carry out minor welding tasks – without needing explicit and comprehensive welder training. Nevertheless, it’s well known that the TIG process in particular requires a high degree of dexterity, which is why it is so important that the weld properties of the chosen devices provide the highest possible levels of support. Operations have to be intuitive – the operator needs to able to clearly see which settings to choose and how to select them.
