The manufacturers of inert gas welding devices and resistance welding devices have come together to form the Electric Welding Equipment Section.

The section represents the economic, technical and industrial policy interests of the electric welding device industry towards political decision-makers and business circles. The electric tools supplied to the trade per year in Germany have a value of around € 170 million. The Electric Welding Equipment Section is a member of the European sector association EWA.
