Without welding technology there would be no container ships, oil platforms, cars, agricultural equipment, pipelines and many other types engineered products and structures. Only reliable bonding of metals can implement technical ideas. However, each different material is accompanied by its own specific challenges and properties which through welding become something new. It’s all about the welding seam! Long lasting safety is determined by the quality of the welding equipment and the capability of the welder.
A proud and respected global organization dating back some 70 years, the ABICOR BINZEL brand stands for a constant presence in the market for innovative, reliable, quality welding and cutting torches and periphery.
Founded in 1945, Alexander Binzel Schweisstechnik GmBh & Co.KG has focused its efforts solely on the optimization of the welding process with the welding torch, acting as the interface between man and technology.
This has not changed to this day. In the mean time, ABICOR BINZEL has become the world’s leading specialist in torch technology and concentrates solely on the development and manufacture of welding and cutting torches as well as peripheral equipment systems.
