- spot welding
- induction heating
- gas welding and soldering
- flame cutting
- thermal processing of various materials
- surface treatment of various materials by heating and flame treatment
In the grindery (L005), grinding and polishing work on metals are performed. In addition, it can also be used as an assembly area. The most pivotal equipment is:
- vertical band grinder
- horizontal band grinder
- bench grinder
- manual grinders
- polishing machine
