Höganäs AB has announced the opening of a new tech centre for surface coating located at its site in Höganäs, Sweden. The tech centre, named ArcX Europe, follows previously established centres in North America, Asia and South America.
“Now we will be able to give our customers even better support. We can help them to optimise their processes, solve problems and find new solutions. We will also organise training and customised workshops for customers who want that,” stated Ingrid Hauer Miller, responsible for ArcX Europe.
During the opening ceremony attend by around 50 guests, Höganäs CEO Melker Jernberg stressed that he hopes customers will really make the most of the centre and all its competence going forward. “We work hard so that you will be successful. Your success also leads to our success,” stated Jernberg. “Surface coating is, for me, a clear way of doing good business. It has to do with sustainability, reuse, and life-length of products. This is a very important issue for the future.”
At customers’ disposal are a 7 kW fibre-coupled diode laser (Laserline), a fully automated Commersald PTA system, a semi-automatic Hettiger PTA system, flame spray guns, powder welding torches, a wear lab and a fully equipped metallographic. Training, education and workshops will also be available.
