“There is no such thing as bad welding conditions, only bad equipment.” Therefore welding expert Alpes Soudage has always relied on the welding consumables of Böhler Welding. And with the new Böhler Welding equipment they can also count on the perfect synergies between consumables and welding machines. URANOS 2000 SMC has now undergone an especially difficult challenge and proven it’s quality: lightweight, convenient, precise. The perfect welding machine for this extraordinary job.

Alpes Soudage is the Welding expert in Sainte-Hélène-du-Lac near Chambéry. While large companies in France and abroad realize their projects, they rely on Alpes Soudage for their expertise in terms of the complete welding process, their knowledge of different welding methods and international standards. Alpes Soudage offers tailor-made solutions, training and quality assurance services for every step of a welding project.

For a customer project of welding an avalanche control system directly in the mountains of the French Alpes, Alpes Soudage trained the welder and provided help for this application as well as the perfect welding machine for this job. They recommended the Böhler Welding Uranos 2000 SMC as the lightness and the arc quality allowed the welder to accomplish this job in height and outside, connected on generating sets with 150m extension cord without inconvenience.
