Welding in partnership

Saf-Fro, a brand owned by Air Liquide Welding. Since their foundation in 1909 and 1924, SAF and FRO have never ceased to participate in the evolution of the welding and cutting profession. At the beginning, using the autogeneous oxyacetylene flame welding technique, SAF (La Soudure Autogène Française) and FRO (Fabbriche Riunite Ossigeno) were presented as the most important companies on the welding markets in France and Italy. Since 1993, SAF and FRO have been integrated into the Air Liquide Welding group, which allows our customers to benefit from global solutions, processes, gases, equipment and consumables. SAF and FRO are now united to provide the best welding and cutting.

Automatic Welding Equipment

Plasma and Tig

The plasma arc is now widely used in the steel, chemical and mechanical engineering industries. As market leader in this sector, Air Liquide Welding has turned it into a powerful cutting and welding tool. It is generally accepted that the plasma welding process is the major technological advance from inert gas shielded free arc welding (the TIG process).
