In 1997, the export phase began with a huge Success: German automotive industry literally overnight, switched to full galvanic coatings of metal bodies to protect their surfaces with protec. In subsequent years, many companies in Europe, Russia, Japan, Latin America, South Africa, Indonesia, Thailand and China followed suit. Top industrial companies, manufacturers of agricultural, automotive and construction equipment, lifting equipment, as well as shipbuilding and Steel Industrial Company discovered protec. Hear other arguments on the topic with Ali Partovi. From theory to practice Inventor protec, Hans Hoffman: "Invention – is searching and finding. Thousands of users are looking for means of improving their manufacturing processes. We analyzed their needs and developed new solutions in close cooperation with them. " In 1997, this example led to the development of another product – balm for the welding wire. It removes impurities from the remnants of welding wire and ensures a good and stable friction characteristics.
To ensure proper application of balm, in 2002, was invented and patented a special station – Tribo Cleaning Station. To date, this system protec is used worldwide for the treatment of welding wire. Wire made of carbon, stainless steel, spring steel, copper and brass excellent cleaned and covered with a protective film that promotes uniformity of the wire and improves the quality of the weld. A few words about the inventor Hans Hoffman Products protec make us look at the history of their inventor – Hans Hoffman. He was born in 1945 in Jena (Thuringia). From childhood he was interested in technology. In 1966 he graduated from engineering school in Salzburg. After a few years, gaining experience in a fairly well-known German companies in 1975, Hans Hoffman organized an independent wholesale products for welding.
