What is WeldGalaxy?
Weld Galaxy is a B2B online platform that will bring together global buyers and EU sellers of welding equipment along with auxiliaries/consumables and services. A digital platform aimed to enhance the visibility of EU’s welding products/prototypes/services to global users and providing innovative web-based services, WeldGalaxy will incorporate a Knowledge Based Engineering Tool that streamlines equipment selection process for end-users and allows ‘plug and produce’ digital manufacturing of the right equipment to specified customers’ /end users’ requirements and regulatory compliance.
Digital platform aiming to increase the visibility of EU manufacturers to global users of equipment and to increase and support digitisation of manufacturing; enhance experimentation and market uptake of off-the-shelf prototypes developed by EU SMEs; and boost European competitiveness and market share in welding equipment, consumables and services.
Help EU manufacturers to sell more welding equipment and consumables globally; provide a digital ‘plug and produce’ online welding equipment platform that allows EU manufacturers to rapidly design and test innovative equipment in collaboration with other manufacturers and end-users. Help end-users to select the right processes and equipment, streamline inventory management, enhance equipment maintenance, collaborate with manufacturers to design and test new products meeting their needs; hence limiting failures/downtime, enhancing energy efficiency, reducing operation cost and increasing productivity. The platform will enable:
- Transparency of product features, capabilities, resource use, associated add-on services and price;
- Customer feedback, real-time use feedback (anonymised as needed) and associated options;
- Scalability with respect to technological development and manufacturing application domains;
- Information about standards and regulatory compliance (e.g. the facilitation of re- and de-manufacturing) as well as security requirements
