Fronius provides manual and robotic welding solutions, welding automation systems, and services. Before purchase, customers benefit from customised product demonstrations and trial installations, ensuring that they choose the correct welding solution for their requirements.

B.E.D. is proud to offer premium local brand Hypertherm’s Powermax® systems. We are also an authorised Hypertherm repair centre. Powermax® systems provide high-performance cutting solutions using plasma technology. Cutting with a plasma system does not require flammable gases and is fast and versatile.
Plasma is created when gas is ionised by electrical energy. In Powermax® systems, its intense heat (up to 22,000° C) is used to melt metal. Compressed air or nitrogen blows the molten metal away, leaving a neat cut edge which is ready to weld.
Powermax® systems are also effective for gouging metal.
B.E.D. represents leading German manufacturer Messer Cutting Systems Oxyfuel Technology products, systems and consumables.
