AKGEC – Fronius, Advance Welding Technology and Research Center (AWTRC) has been established in collaboration with Fronius International GmbH, under the aegis of AKGEC Skills Foundation at Ajay Kumar Garg Engineering College Campus, Ghaziabad. The major objective of the center is to develop state of art infrastructure for becoming a globally recognized source of competent workforce and offer cost-effective, superior-performing Industrial Solutions by conducting training, research & development and consultancy in the field of welding science, engineering and technology.
The center is equipped with state of art Digital Inverter based, Fronius Arc Welding power sources covering SMAW, GMAW and GTAW processes along with Simulators for developing the motor skills required to learn welding. Advanced arc welding power sources such as Synergic Pulse GMAW setup and Cold Wire Transfer GTAW setup are also available. It has 25 nos. state of art welding stations, fitted with Nederman make Fume Extraction Systems, Central Gas Manifold System commissioned by Messer Cutting Systems for supply of shielding & cutting gases, Customizable Welding Trainer Tables, most suitable for effective learning of welding in all positions, Modular Welding Tables with modular fixture set for accurate positioning of workpieces. The center also has a dedicated thermal cutting section which includes Gas Welding, Brazing & Cutting setup along with a state of art Messer CNC Plasma Cutting Machine.
Destructive Testing facility is available for performing the strength, hardness, toughness, macro / micro testing of welds and Non-Destructive Testing facilities for performing Magnetic Particle Testing, Liquid Penetrant Testing, Ultrasonic Testing, Eddy Current Testing and X-Ray Film Interpretation of weld defects also exists.
AKGEC FRONIUS-AWTRC is committed to provide overall solutions to the industries for improving the quality, productivity and competitiveness in the field of welding, thermal cutting and inspection technology. Some of the specific industrial services offered in the above fields are mentioned below.
