Through intensive development in the 1940s and 1950s, Schlatter managed to introduce several new products to the market. In the following years, Schlatter focused particularly on providing the latest technology in order to expand the market position. The leaps in the development of control and power electronics opened up new perspectives in achieving this. Schlatter was the first company to introduce rectifier welding machines to the markets.
Once again, Schlatter proved their exceptional quality in the ability to provide comprehensive solutions by developing control systems in-house. Using the latest microprocessor technology in high-tech devices to control, regulation, measure and monitor welding processes guarantees the required quality of the bond. Furthermore, the use of IT opens up new and nearly endless possibilities. Thanks to their usage in processing systems in managing and networking production plants, flexibility, productivity and reliability can be improved considerably.
Becoming an engineering-company
The continuous development towards becoming an engineering company for complex system solutions requires a clear focus. Right from the start, Schlatter’s key to success was uniting mechanical engineers, welding experts, electricians and software specialists under one roof. From this emerged Schlatter’s three core competences, welding technology, mechatronics and system technology.
