Competition for young welders

Essen, Germany. Messer Cutting Systems’ Oxyfuel Technology division was one of the sponsors of this year’s “Jugend schweisst” welding competition for young people organised by the DVS (German Welding Society).

The competition is held every two years and provides an opportunity for young welders to put their theoretical knowledge to the test and demonstrate their practical skills. The winners received great prizes and got the chance to network with representatives of renowned companies in the field of joining technology.

The DVS is a technical-scientific non-profit-making society with its headquarters in Düsseldorf. Its purpose is to promote welding and allied processes for the benefit of the general public. It is a pacemaker in questions relating to the joining, cutting and coating of metallic and non-metallic materials as well as of composite materials.
