Mechanised and automated welding systems in the construction industry yield substantial cost and time-saving benefits.

Nimesh Chinoy, Managing Director, Electronic Devices, in an interview with B2B Purchase discusses how welding is driving sustainable construction with eco-friendly innovations and adapting to new technologies to ensure safety and efficiency.

How do advanced welding technologies empower construction professionals to overcome complex challenges and achieve higher levels of precision and efficiency?

Advanced welding technologies play a pivotal role in empowering construction professionals to navigate intricate challenges and attain heightened precision and efficiency. By facilitating precise control over welding processes, advanced technologies enhance the precision of intricate joint configurations and critical weld positions. This results in reduced rework and enhanced weld quality. Furthermore, the integration of real-time monitoring and data analytics optimises resource allocation, minimises downtime, and enhances overall workflow efficiency, contributing to elevated project timelines.

What role do skill development and training play in ensuring the safe and proficient use of welding techniques in construction projects?

Skill development and training are paramount in guaranteeing the secure and adept application of welding techniques within construction projects. As a welding machine manufacturer, we recognise that advanced technologies alone are insufficient without a skilled workforce capable of harnessing their potential. Rigorous training equips construction professionals with the necessary expertise to operate complex machinery safely and efficiently, mitigating potential hazards and ensuring compliance with stringent safety regulations.
