Due to the dynamic development of the company, in 2018 the Board of TIS made the decision to construct manufacturing facilities in Pilzno, to produce solid wire for MIG/ MAG welding, based on modern equipment and production lines as well as innovative technological solutions. The development of the guidelines of our development plans meant that the company required an interdisciplinary working team that commenced its work by carefully analysing the state of the art and the currently used manufacturing technologies in solid welding wire. The collected know-how, including thorough knowledge of patented domestic and foreign solutions, allowed us to refine our action plan and indicate those issues that might provide us with significant technical information. As a result of the conducted work, an innovative technology of production of solid welding wire was developed that used proprietary construction and technical solutions. The wire production technology developed by the interdisciplinary employee team takes the form of an industrial property right, and it is based on the patent submission concerning the invention entitled ‘Mode of production of solid welding wire’.
Innovative solutions applied in the welding wire manufacturing line were implemented e. g. in the following areas:
- removal of scale from the rolled material
- rolling up of the pulled wire in special baskets (no twist)
- wire lubrication by way of use of an innovative container
- pulling speed adjustment
- non-traditional end pulling process
The implementation of innovative solutions by TIS in the purchased solid welding wire production equipment and lines allowed us to start the manufacture of our proprietary welding wire in Pilzno, in order to provide the domestic and foreign markets with products characterised by improved welding and usable properties, which fulfil high Customer requirements.
