40 years of oxyhydrogen gas generators with Oweld

Vol. 8 issue 1

OXYWELD, headquartered in the Italian province of Pordenone, is a company specialised in the production of oxyhydrogen gas generators for brazing. This is a special year because OWELD brand marks its 40th anniversary. By combining passion and innovation, the company has become an important player in this industry. In 1981, Enrico Andreetta, the founder of Oxyweld, set the goal of producing fire from water. The company, which started in a small garage in the town of Conegliano in the northeast of Italy, currently supports thousands of small to large companies in more than 75 countries.

“Oxyweld is extremely proud to be celebrating its 40th anniversary, a significant milestone that few companies manage to achieve nowadays”, says Diego Andreetta, Sales Director. “We have overcome many challenges in the past, thanks to our tenacity and efficient strategy. It is particularly gratifying to celebrate this anniversary because the future of the industry looks particularly bright. The demand for environmentally friendly and safe technologies continues to grow, and Oxyweld is at the forefront, building new products and investing significant resources in the R&D”.

 

Oxyweld’s environmentally friendly brazing technologies transform water into oxyhydrogen gas and replace the conventional oxy-fuel cylinders

 

Oxyweld’s environmentally friendly brazing technologies transform water into oxyhydrogen gas and replace the conventional oxy-fuel cylinders (i.e., the most common being oxy-acetylene, oxy-propane or oxy-natural gas). In the transformer industry, thanks to the flame properties, the system is specifically designed for the brazing of copper, brass, aluminium, bus bars, cables and wires ranging from small size up to large cross-sections. The same flame is also used to remove resin from the CTC (continuously transposed cable) in the power industry.

From the safety aspect, the system works at low pressure, below 0.5 bar, without storage gas because it is produced only on demand. Without optical radiation and toxic fumes from the flame, operators can work more efficiently and in a safer environment. In addition to that, Oweld products are adopted for the simplicity of usage and superior comfort in brazing, thanks to a light torch.
