June 7, 2010

Kjellberg Finsterwalde has opened what it says is Europe's largest plasma center, in Finsterwalde, Germany.

In April about 160 customers and partners from nearly 20 countries visited the new Application Center, where they followed demonstrations of underwater plasma cutting with the HiFocus 440i machine, bevel and hole cutting, marking of metals, and cutting with the small manual plasma units of the new CUTi series. Robotic profile cutting also was demonstrated.

Guests also visited the development department, which performs extensive testing on the lifetime of consumables, and the new training facilities. Six gas cutting systems and two robots are available for demonstrations and training.

The company's welding division demonstrated plasma powder deposition welding with the new PSI 350 power source and SA welding with the new UPK fillet welding machine. The electrode division presented standard and special welding electrodes.
