Welder and bolt fitter apprenticeships

The Karl Kremsmueller Welding Academy is a modern training institute located at the company headquarters in Steinhaus near Wels. It was founded in the year 2004 and named after the founder of the company, Karl Kremsmueller. During his time, Karl Kremsmueller was known as a highly qualified welder, who often gave spontaneous lessons in welding on-site.

The welding academy is generously proportioned, divided into uniformly outfitted working areas, called welding bunks, and equipped taking ergonomic aspects into consideration. Two of the training bunks are barrier-free in design for differently challenged individuals. The air in the entire training institute is changed 40 times in an hour. The central gas supply ensures absolute safety. Up to 20 persons can be taught simultaneously in different welding techniques.

Training is provided with state-of-the-art welding equipment and technology. The equipment at the training stations is matched to the requirements of the most varied welding technologies.

Gas welding A classical, universal process for simple welding tasks, which is used in the most varied crafts. For example, in the installation industry, where the technology is used for pipe welding and flame cutting. The welder has to have high motor skills.

TIG-welding Here, the electric arc burns between a tungsten electrode and the workpiece in an inert gas atmosphere. The filler material is predominantly fed manually. But there are now numerous automation options as well. Tungsten inert gas welding is employed for high-alloy steels, highly corrosion-resistant materials, aluminium and nickel-based materials and also for difficult welding positions.

Electric (hand) welding A popular welding method in industry and craft. It is equally suitable for high-alloy steels and unalloyed steels. The welding machines are small and compact. In addition, e-(hand) welding allows the use of a wide range of weld filler materials for all material types.

MIG welding MIG welding machines are mainly used in machine manufacture and on welding robots. High-quality welds with the highest welding power under automated conditions are the strengths of this process.

MAG welding This technology is mainly used with aluminium materials and owing to its special material properties and with its high deposition rate, it is the welding process of choice.

Submerged arc welding Submerged arc welding is an electric arc welding process in which the welding arc burns invisibly between an endless electrode and the workpiece under the cover of a granular powder. Owing to the high deposition rate and the high degree of automation as compared to other manual welding process, submerged arc welding is considered to be a high-performance welding process.

Threaded joints in the pressure zone. A flange is a component for sealing, joining or closing pipes, machine parts or housings with bolts and nuts. Flange joints in industrial plant construction are often oversized and subjected to high pressures. Therefore, special knowledge and skills are required for threaded joints in systems subject to pressure in critical applications.

The training courses are practical-oriented, and tailored to the respective target requirements. The courses range from certificate renewal and standardised courses to individualised training. Apprenticeships will follow the current apprenticeship standards such as EN ISO 9606-1 or EN 1591-4.
