No matter who you are, what you do or where you are in the world, you are never far from a weld. People might not always realize it when they go about their business, but high-quality welding has a daily role in our built environments. Welds hold buildings, ships and steel frames hidden within walls […]Read more "Say bye-bye to costly weld repairs with 100% WPS compliance"
In the world of welding, innovation is guided by the needs of both the industries using welding systems, and the individual welders who work with them from day to day. To draw a picture of the future of welding, we asked two welders to give us their insights on the road ahead. Hanna Bechtel, metal […]Read more "Future welding – as seen by the welders"
From a 10-year-old boy’s hobby to lifelong learning This year, it’ll have been 40 years since the inverter power source was developed. We sat down with Tapani Mäkimaa, an original member of the development team, and discussed what makes Kemppi a pioneer in its field, year after year. “Everything starts from a burning desire to […]Read more "“Technology is fun!”"
40 welders in a workshop, and each of them have 4–5 different welding qualifications which puts the total at around a hefty 200 qualifications. As usual, these documents have to be prolonged every six months. From there on, it’s just elementary math: that’s 400 signatures per year to keep welding projects rolling without a hitch. […]Read more "Stop the hassle and just get to work"
Internet of Things has been a buzz word among industry representatives for a few years now. It is discussed in various seminars and workshops every week. However, the topics covered have changed over time. In the beginning, the focus was on connecting devices to data networks. The next phase was adding sensors for various events […]Read more "Internet of Welding – reaching for the top of competitiveness"
Innovating welding is a part of Kemppi’s DNA. After saying that, it is only fair to admit that we are dealing with an extremely complicated mission. Why? Because in welding, true value originates from understanding our customer’s needs, their business, and the business of their customers. At Kemppi, we have always been pioneers through challenging […]Read more "Enablers of welding value: Connectivity, usability, upgradability, and performance"
The welding production chain is complex. Besides the actual welding work, one has to consider resource planning, welding procedure and qualification management, documentation, WPS compliance, standardization and requirements. And the list goes on. Welding management software was created to manage and improve the complex nature of this multi-dimensional process. Our claim is that insight creates […]Read more "Can you afford to ignore the value of welding knowledge?"
Creating a new product for industrial users is both a long journey and exciting adventure. In his LinkedIn Pulse post, Kemppi’s User Experience Manager Jussi Kapanen recalls the beginning of an ambitious R&D project, when the team was tasked with the target of creating the best MIG welding system in the world, to be loved by users in […]Read more "Behind the scenes: The development of X8 MIG Welder"
The complexity of products makes the WPS development process more time-consuming. As industries move to subcontractor and multi-site based operating models, WPS management also becomes more demanding. During the development of our new offering for demanding industrial welding, we began to rethink the manual WPS. Is the manual way truly the only option in this […]Read more "What could you save by digitalizing your WPS?"
We asked two professional welders – Meyer’s Jukka Hahko and Dinolift’s Pasi Laakso – what good usability means in industrial welding. Now 55 years old, Jukka Hahko began by welding his neighbors’ trailer shafts and pig pens. In 1982, Jukka participated in the shipyard’s welding course where his career at Meyer started. Today, Jukka is […]Read more "The significance of usability in industrial welding"
