United States : Frost & Sullivan Lauds ABICOR BINZEL for its Technology Excellence in Designing Industry-first and Scientifically Attested Products that Best Address Market Trends.

Based on its recent analysis of the welding torches market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes ABICOR BINZEL (BINZEL) with the 2013 Europe Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Leadership. BINZEL's advanced line of lighter-weight and feature-rich torches for manual welding delivers high performance and value to users. The company's commitment to product development has led to high acceptance of its products - the ABIMIGA A T LW Torch line and the RAB GRIP Line of Fume Extraction Torches.

The air-cooled ABIMIG A T LW Torch uses aluminium in the 'BIKOXA LW' cable lines, which reduces the weight of the torch and eventually, eliminates the laboriousness associated with traditional torches. The torch features a flexible neck facilitated by the torch's 'T interface'. This design enables the welder to easily change the torch neck for different welding requirements in less than a minute, without requiring any equipment. Like this welders always have best accessibility to the components to be welded by adopting the welding torch and not forcing their body to be in an unhealthy posture.

ABIMIGA A T LW Torch's modular attribute has given it a competitive edge over the traditional welding torches in terms of enhanced efficiency, improved ergonomics, and reduced operational costs. Further, to enable welders to better grip the torch, BINZEL has designed the handle of the torch using 2K components that give a soft feel.

Meanwhile, the company's RAB GRIP Line of torches with value-added features reduces the cost of welding by nearly 20 percent by doing away with the need for external protection systems. This solution is fully compatible with the company's FES-200 units and delivers a best-in-class fume extraction efficiency of 95 percent. The fumes released during the welding processes are trapped and extracted right at the arc, which is the release point of the fumes. The unique FES-200 W3 licensed for all CrNi steel, also features an audible meter that alerts the user when the filter needs to be cleaned. It also reduces noise pollution and helps customers achieve high energy efficiency. It was developed specifically to meet the demands of chrome and nickel material jointing and is certified by the Institute of Work Safety with the W3 license for all welding applications.

The RAB GRIP Line also features a softer 'black' grip design and 'BIKOXA LW' cable lines, which reduces the weight of these torches by almost 15 percent. The key differentiating start-stop characteristic of the FES-200 unit, which is automated, enables the unit to function only when welding is in progress. This extends the life of the motor nearly five times.

Leveraging its customer-centric focus on improving the safety and health of welders, BINZEL has successfully increased the annual production volume of its advanced fume extraction torches by around 30 percent over 2011.
