Afterwards the participants had the chance to discuss their future needs for product development with our product experts and identify potential applications together with our application specialists.

The project team, represented by Product Manager Michael Staber and Global Application Engineer Michael Fiedler, and their achievements in this project were complimented by voestalpine Böhler Welding CEO, Günter Neureiter and Mr. Franz Kainersdorfer, Head of the voestalpine Metal Engineering Division. They thanked the project team for the knowledge and efforts they have invested in the development of these innovative seamless cored wires over the last years.

A product demonstration in the company’s own welding laboratory rounded-off the second day of this event. Everyone had the opportunity to witness the unique welding characteristics of the new flux-cored wires and view the innovative production process during a plant visit in Kapfenberg.
