Cavitar is one of the 10 companies chosen for this first ever WeldGalaxy mentoring program, led by The Welding Institute (TWI). All of the selected companies are “arc welding champions” in their own field. Cavitar will contribute with its welding cameras based on our laser illumination technology that enables viewing the arc welding process with high precision by filtering out the disturbing process light.
The goal of the WeldGalaxy program is to boost the welding industry by creating an online B2B marketplace that aims to make the European arc welding sector more competitive by enhancing the visibility of EU’s welding products/prototypes/services and bringing them together with global buyers. The WeldGalaxy program is funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program.
In the spring 2020, The WeldGalaxy consortium (of 12 partners) launched its first open call. Ten pilots to develop innovative technologies in the field of arc welding and become the first platform beta-testers were selected.
The WeldGalaxy program kicks off in October 2020 and we are very excited to participate in it.
