European Welding Federation

EWF is a pioneer in implementing a harmonized qualification and certification system for welding professionals. Through European projects such as Virtweld, DistoolWeld and Weldiction, EWF has been innovating in welding training methodologies, as well as in the development of new technologies and uses for welding, through new projects such as Flexi_Fab, EMFWeld and TailorWeld.

Bringing next-gen learning and knowledge assessment methodologies to EWF’s system and STEM training

Bringing next-gen learning and knowledge assessment methodologies to EWF’s system and STEM training

Traditional learning methods are being challenged by the potential that technologies, coupled with new pedagogical approaches, hold to create a different way of learning, based on active learning and interaction. This is particularly felt in technical fields of knowledge, such…

Empowering professionals with sought-after welding qualifications through Work-Based Learning

As materials and technologies quickly evolve, welders are required to step up their skillset, as they must perform increasingly complex tasks. This complexity implies that professionals need to adapt and increase their qualifications, as welding lies at the core of…

Crafting qualifications to accelerate adoption of Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing is entering fast into the mainstream since most industries, if not all, are bound to benefit from its nearly endless possibilities of customization and on-demand production. It is already redefining many industries, and it has the potential to…

Streamlining adoption of high-speed, high-resolution surface texturing – Prometheus project

Streamlining adoption of high-speed, high-resolution surface texturing – Prometheus project

http:Prometheus' project will bridge the existing gap between niche and mainstream applications for high power ultra-short pulse laser surface processing. This advanced technology enables the production of materials with advanced properties such as non-stick, low wear/friction, oleophobic or hydrophobic, but…

Breakthrough of friction stir welding through an automated robotic system

The aim of the FlexiFab project was to develop a flexible Friction Stir Welding (FSW) system capable of automatically fabricating complex structures, in a variety of joint configurations, from a range of aluminium alloy grades and thicknesses used in the…

Workforce qualification requirements of Industry 4.0 at the forefront of EWF’s activities in 2016

As it is also happening in many other sectors, manufacturing is being digitally disrupted, creating a plethora of challenges and opportunities that can profoundly change the landscape. This massive change can be traced to the way digital technologies and offspring…
