BOC and EWM celebrate decade with Industry 4.0 events



Leading gas and engineering company BOC, a subsidiary of Linde plc, celebrated 10 years of partnership with EWM through a series of February events showcasing the latest welding innovations to Australian fabricators and businesses.

In partnership with Weld Australia, BOC customers and members of Weld Australia attended ‘Discover the Welding 4.0 revolution’ which featured live welding demonstrations by digital welding experts from EWM, a global market leader in welding technology.

Tony Newnham, Head of SPW Group & BOC Welding Business said the event demonstrated how Welding 4.0 techniques can improve profitability and quality for Australian welders.
“Welding technology is undergoing revolutionary change with the emergence of more automation and data exchange between machines.
 
“Whether it’s small fabrication jobs or automated robotic applications, BOC understands the need to keep our customers up to speed on the latest developments in digital welding. These technologies are revolutionising how welders deliver quality jobs. Welding operations of all sizes can increase production efficiencies and save money.
 
“We are delighted to have our long-standing partner EWM deliver training in Australia and demonstrate their new range of Titan welding equipment, designed to future-proof welding operations for industry 4.0.”
 
 Supervisory Board, President of EWM, Susanne Szczesny-Oßing says that shared values and BOC’s expertise has been key to the successful partnership.
 
“BOC’s technical expertise in welding and EWM’s passion for technology are the perfect combination to help our customers on their journey through this digital revolution.
 
“Welding 4.0 has many benefits such as increased quality welds and improved production efficiency. The customers who attended the event in Sydney got exclusive demonstrations on how welding 4.0 can help them improve efficiencies in their own welding businesses.
 
“To date, our trusted partnership with BOC has led to almost 15,000 EWM welding machines currently being used by customers in Australia and New Zealand, and we look forward to building on this partnership in the future.
 
“The implementation of i4.0 advanced welding technology into Australian manufacturing will deliver significant improvements in profitability, efficiency and quality, “said Geoff Crittenden, CEO of Weld Australia.
 
“Importantly, it will also make our manufacturing more internationally competitive and lead to industry growth and higher employment,” Crittenden said.
