Save time, assure quality: Digital job cards offer a sizable advantage in day-to-day welding management operations.

Hold the card up to the machine and start welding. Packed with cutting-edge NFC radio technology, the job cards devised by Lorch allow the welder not only to quickly enter the welding parameters he needs, but also offer an entirely new and efficient approach to quality control.


Welding software, the digitalization of welding, Industry 4.0, Internet of Things (IoT), etc., it can be a bit daunting to keep up with rapid advances in technology, both to understand and to assess whether any of it will actually make a difference to the bottom-line productivity in your workplace. So, let’s recap welding technology basics.

Super fast digitalised inverter power sources. Welding systems which calculate and predict adjustments ahead of time. Digitalisation of processes allowing unprecedented control and monitoring via worldwide communication devices.

Quality welds made easy

If you are MIG welding, it is well worth considering the use of a metal-cored wire (MCW) rather than a solid wire or standard flux cored wire to reduce the risk of weld defects.

Lack of skilled staff in the welding industry

Highly skilled welders can still experience weld flaws, particularly when getting used to new equipment, or under pressure to meet deadlines, however, more often than not the issue of weld defects boils down to a lack of skilled staff.


In our search for improving efficiency and reducing costs in welding processes, sometimes the obvious is overlooked. Let’s get back to basics: A useful guide is the golden rule for minimising the cost of making a weld:
