Welding facility

In close cooperation with our customer Westfalen AG in Münster, 3defacto engineers design welding facilities. In these successful special engineering projects, Westfalen AG contributes its many years of experience and know-how of the welding processes used. 3defacto specialists take care of the design, manufacture, and assembly, including electrical engineering/software.

The welding facilities are equipped with state-of-the-art servo drive technology and sensor systems for component and weld seam monitoring. They enable a customer-specific, innovative welding process and, as combined TIG-MAG systems, increase welding speed and productivity. Most recently, 3defacto developed a MAG flange welding system, unique in its function, which simultaneously produces up to 4 weld seams in one processing step.

Facts and figures about the welding facility
