EWAC R&D Centre was inaugurated in 1980 by Dr. Rene Wasserman, a pioneer in low heat input ‘Eutectic’ welding products for Maintenance and Repair Applications across all types of industries. The vision is to address customer-specific needs and provide cost-effective solutions for the reclamation of industrial components. Over the last four decades, the ‘Research Centre’ has assimilated a high level of technological excellence. It assisted several Indian industries in improving industrial output by reducing the downtime of machinery and adopting advanced maintenance and repair welding processes and alloy systems.
EWAC R&D Centre has been recognized by the “Department of Scientific & Industrial Research [DSIR], Govt. of India” since 1982. The core strength lies in its team of experienced researchers and specialists who focus on product, process, and application developments. The key areas that were in focus are specified below:
Exclusive test rigs have been developed to simulate service conditions for ranking product performance both at room temperature and at elevated temperatures. Some of the key equipments include:
Fast and accurate chemical analysis is a key factor for product development. This R&D Centre is equipped with modern equipments like Optical Emission Spectrometer, Positive metal identification and C, S, O2 & N2 Analysers.
The microstructural analysis enables R&D engineers to design products with desired microstructures, understand the failure mechanism and establish structure-property correlation. The latest opto-digital image analysis system with software for image acquisition, analysis and archiving with a large number of available functions sets new standards for scientific image processing.
EWAC R&D is equipped with pilot plants for coated electrodes, wear plates, steel mill reconditioning trials and polymer compounds. These are being extensively used during development to achieve perfection in the product before technology is transferred to the main production line.
