ABICOR BINZEL Brief Portrait
To recognize technological trends and innovative design is one of the power of our company. Founded 1945 Alexander Binzel Schweisstechnik GmbH & Co. KG early specialized in the development and production of inert-gas shielded welding and cutting torches for MIG/MAG, TIG and plasma.
Since that time many patented developments characterize the world of welding and cutting and put an international standard.
With more than 30 subsidiaries, more than 20 exclusive sales partners and 1200 employees worldwide the ABICOR BINZEL Group is represented in more than 50 countries.
Our production plants are located in the headquaters in Buseck, near Gießen and in our plant in Dresden, as well as in the United States, Brazil, India, China and Russia.

Products - for highest demand
The demands at functionality and safety are rising worldwide and also the demands of the quality of technical products. Technical ideas often are feasible by reliable connection of metals and their alloys.
ABICOR BINZEL supplies for all working materials and applications the exact welding or cutting torch necessary. For the manual use or for the semi-or full automatic operation. Gas- or liquid-cooled. Wide range welding accessories as well as robotic peripheral systems. Decisive for long lasting safety is the welding seam.
Innovation and quality ...
Intensive development is the basis of new products.
Approximately 40 development engineers are currently working on innovative and individual solutions in their own welding technological laboratory where the equipment is surely unique within the branch. With the support of 3D-CAD-design programmes as well as modern processing for the visualization of gas currents, this is resulting in the trailblazing developments of the best possible torch designs, ergonomically exemplary torch handles and components for the automatic welding technology.
The environmentally-friendly production with individual tool and power supply construction is based on modern CNC and multiple-station welding machines machinery and is also highly automatic.
Speed, economic feasibility and quality are the crucial demands.
ABICOR BINZEL was the first pure manufacturer of welding torches to be awarded the certificate in compliance with DIN EN ISO 9001 for quality management.
On-the-spot service - worldwide
Everywhere all over the world where welding is used we will help you with competent advise and high-performance products. Our global presence guarantees quick delivery from our worldwide stocks and technical consultation and on-the-spot service all times.
