Luvata's welding products
Toyota came to us to help them increase productivity through improved manufacturing efficiencies in their automotive business.
All car manufacturers are continually seeking improvements in processes, reductions in downtime and decreases in costs. The particular challenge this time was to improve the quality of welding in the face of the adverse welding conditions created by coated steel materials. At the same time, they wanted to reduce downtime and decrease costs.
We worked with Toyota to develop welding electrode profiles and alloys that could consistently deliver high weld-standards throughout the life of the electrode - minimising downtime, reject welds, and waste. The unique blend of alloy composition and proprietary cold working properties enhanced performance and was particularly suited for use with coated materials. The result was superior welding products produced from dispersion-strengthened and zirconium coppers, combined with a special mechanical deformation process.
Since we entered the resistance-welding market in 1978, we have always strived to exceed our customers’ expectations. Today, we continue to set standards in manufacturing methods and quality control. From engineering to production scheduling, to customer service and process engineering capabilities, Luvata is recognised as the leading manufacturer of resistance welding products.
