Passion for technology, revolutionary solutions and Austrian quality – this is what the Fronius brand has stood for since 1945. Fronius develops its tailor-made, innovative systems for welding technology for and with its customers. Both digitalisation and sustainability play a central role in high-end welding processes.
Fronius focuses on generating the perfect arc for consistently high welding quality. This is how the company became the innovation leader in arc welding and the global market leader in robot welding. Key sectors are the automotive industry and its suppliers as well as yellow goods and commercial transportation. Fronius‘s Welding Automation division also implements customer-specific, automated holistic welding solutions. Power sources for manual applications, welding accessories and a wide range of services round off the portfolio.
The welding technology specialist sets great store by customer proximity in order to find the right solution for every welding challenge. With more than 1,000 sales partners world-wide, Fronius Perfect Welding is particularly close to its customers. In intense exchange, the team works together to develop new technologies and individual solutions. But Fronius is also about putting the spotlight on people and their needs. This is why high quality always goes hand in hand with reliability, health protection and ease of use in all Fronius products and services.
For Fronius, quality awareness is not just an empty promise, but a corporate value that is lived by and practised. The company puts its products through 13 different endurance tests during the development phase. This is the only way to guarantee a long working life. To ensure responsible use of resources, Fronius places emphasis on durability, repairability and recycling right from the development stage.
Fronius shapes future trends in welding technology – with Cold Metal Transfer, for example. This process enables thermal joining of galvanised steel with aluminium sheets. Even wafer-thin aluminium sheets from a thickness of 0.3 millimetres can be joined in this way. And the Upper Austrians also seek to be the innovation leader in sustainability. Fronius welding instruments are characterised, in particular, by great energy efficiency: the welding expert was the first manufacturer ever to integrate transistorbased inverter technology. This translates to around one third lower electricity consumption and about 80 percent savings in terms of raw materials.
Digitalisation influences joining technology in many ways. That‘s why Fronius develops software solutions to improve the performance of welding systems in terms of ease of operation, weld quality and speed. The documentation software logs all welding conditions. Software-based analyses enable an economical use of materials – filler wire and inert gas, for example. Cloud applications by Fronius help to evaluate data, and identify and immediately resolve weak spots. Remote access enables state analyses and service in real time to provide a basis for smart maintenance planning.
Headquartered in Pettenbach and with further facilities in Upper Austria, Fronius International GmbH with its 5,660 employees has global activities in the fields of welding technology, photovoltaics and battery charging technology. 36 international companies, as well as sales partners and representatives in more than 60 countries generate an export quota of 92 percent. 1,321 patents make Fronius the global innovation leader.
