​ Subsidiaries Automated Welding


As we seek to richen our mix, we have targeted growth in equipment systems​ from expanding our light industrial/first-time user offering to heavy duty users in construction and ship building. Additionally, our recent SWP™ acquisition in Australia provides alloy-based maintenance and repair services for mining and energy applications.


We are expanding automation’s reach into low-volume, general fabrication applications with our turnkey Auto-Mate® and System 5 robotic cells. For customers requiring advanced fabrication, tooling, part holding, manipulation and laser welding and cutting solutions, we launched the next-generation robotic 3-D plasma cutting solution and PythonX® II, which replaces multiple fabrication machines with one solution for structural steel applications.

In education, we launched our U/Linc™ welding education curriculum package for welding instructors and expanded our training solutions with the VRTEX® Engage™ system and the REALWELD® educational trainer. We offer mobile training and are investing $32 million into a new welding education center that will be open by 2018.
