developed equipment models
Own R&D center
Since the beginning of the 2000s, the Pilot Paton Plant started the creation of its own laboratories. It helped to strengthen scientific and design developments and mastering technologies for the production of inverter-type welding machines. Since then, the R&D potential of the Plant has been constantly increasing: employment of the best graduates of the National Technical University of Ukraine
“Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute” in the relevant departments has been organized, and the Plant's resources have been constantly invested in the creation and support of infrastructure for the development of the latest welding machines.
The Pilot Paton Plant has its own R&D laboratories, in which completely independent development of absolutely all units of welding current sources is carried out, from the design of the machine body and ending with its own solutions for electronic circuits and software. Research is underway for modes:
- manual arc welding (MMA);
- argon arc welding (TIG);
- semi-automatic welding (MIG / MAG);
- air plasma cutting (CUT).
The laboratories are equipped with modern measuring and adjusting equipment, which allows the development and fine-tuning of inverter welding equipment, which operating at currents up to 1200 amperes!
In the laboratory of the electrode production, in addition to current quality control of incoming raw materials and batches of end products, new promising formulations of welding materials are being developed.
All PATON™ welding equipment and materials, which are sold by the Plant are products exclusively of our own design, which are produced at our own production facilities in Kyiv, using raw materials from the best domestic manufacturers and electronic components of foreign manufacturers (Vishay, NXP, Infineon, Kendeil, Toshiba, Texas Instruments, etc.). All this allows providing unique performance characteristics and high reliability of PATON™ welding equipment both for users in Ukraine and far beyond its borders - promoting the "Made in Ukraine" brand in more than 30 countries around the world!
PATON ™ products meet all the necessary requirements and have the appropriate certificates.
