As editions roll out once every four years, the event is often referred to the “Olympics of Welding Technology” and for good reason – visitors receive an in-depth overview of the entire value chain complete with the latest and best innovations. The thematic halls are as follow: Welding & Joining, Cutting, Surface Technology & Coating, Gas, Supplies & Filler Materials, Equipment & Safety, Quality Assurance, and Services & Digitalisation. The brand has been very successful over the years, which has prompted the creation of satellite events – the BEIJING ESSEN WELDING & CUTTING, the INDIA ESSEN WELDING & CUTTING and Weldex in Russia.
