As part of the participation as an exhibitor at the 1st “Day of Welding Technology” in Bielefeld, capilla welcomed a multitude of highly interested visitors. In addition to informative and exciting conversations at the booth, a highlight of the entire event was certainly a lecture of our Dr. Ing. Michael Nolde. In an interesting and expert way – caped with anecdotes and memorable examples from practice – capilla presented the requirements for the “Welding of Tools for Hot Work”. The solutions we have acquired in decades of research and development have also been briefly reviewed, and this was met with a high degree of approval by the present specialist audience.
