In 1994 a small company named Artech Engineering was formed in Pune - a town in Western India. It started manufacturing capacitor discharge projection welding machines - a much-needed low power alternative to the conventional options. Foresight and focused development paid off. Today Artech boasts of having placed more than 1500 machines in myriad walks of life ranging from sensitive to everyday. Artech’s machines find applications in projection nut and bolt welding, oil filters, shock absorbers, automobile sheet metal components, auto electrical, fabricated impellers, stainless steel kitchen ware etc.
Galloping ahead in its strive for achieving world quality standards, the following year saw the company’s capacitor discharge projection welding machines get the CE marking. This marked the beginning of a new era as Artech made forays internationally selling machines to technologically advanced markets of Europe.
The Artech projection welding machines work on the principle of capacitor discharge. The main advantages of these machines being phenomenally low power requirements, no water cooling, minimum heating, blackening and deformation of component, one stroke multiple projections welding, etc.
