WELD INDIA 2015 again back in Mumbai
India’s Premier Welding Technology Exhibition – Weld India organised by The Indian Institute of Welding is back in Mumbai, after a gap of six years. Weld India 2015 is scheduled from December 10-12, 2015 at CIDCO Exhibition Centre, Vashi, Navi Mumbai. An International Welding Exhibition is taking place for the 1st time in the Industrial belt of Mumbai and with easy access to the manufacturing hubs of Navi Mumbai, Pune etc. Over 150 Exhibitors including International Exhibitors will be participating in Weld India 2015.
The exhibition is being held concurrent to the National Welding Seminar (NWS) of the Indian Institute of Welding. The International Seminar will host about 350+ delegates and about 100 high quality technical papers are expected to be presented at NWS 2015.
Weld India 2015 – India’s Premier Welding and Allied Technology Exhibition in India
Welding is now the universally accepted method of permanently joining all metals. In some respects, it might be considered a mature industry but it is still a growing industry. The true impact of welding on the metalworking industry should be measured in the value of the parts produced by welding, the amount of money saved by the use of welding over other metal fabrication processes, and in the value of products made possible by welding.
Being the most economical and effective method of joining metals, welding plays a vital role in improving the life of manufactured products. Welding is the only method that can be used in space as well as underwater. The global market of welding industry is expected to grow substantially.
With the increased application of robotics in welding industries, the robot welding segment is predicted to witness double digit growth in the near future. Welding is used in more and more industries, from the tallest skyscraper to the automotive industry. Typically, welding involves human judgment, more so than in any other machine operation.
The Indian Welding Industry is set to triple its turnover in the next five years owing to the emerging technologies and the availability of manpower plus trained personnel in India. A key driver boosting market revenues has also been the gradual move from manual to automatic and semi-automatic welding equipment.
A few years ago, India did not have a capability to weld or manufacture structures like pressure vessels but today, India has a steady flow of talent and welding fraternity that can undertake jobs of all capacities and manufacture intricate welded components, which are internationally acceptable. This has enabled India in securing work from the overseas market and putting India poised to serve the global markets!
With more projects like metros rapidly becoming the norm even in Tier 2 & 3 cities, more ships being built and infrastructural development growing across the country leading to an increase in domestic steel consumption. This growth is expected to reflect in the welding industry as well.
India is poised to become a major manufacturing hub because of the relatively low cost of production compared to countries like Malaysia and Singapore.
