AWG, founded in 1982, develops and manufactures a full range of high quality welding consumables and welding equipment designed for the different customer market segments. Our ambition is to be the best partner for wide range of welding applications, for example in the chemical and petrochemical processing industries, paper and pulp manufacture, offshore construction and shipbuilding. We supply welding consumables and welding equipment. Also our company provides welding technology for large and small companies. Since the mid-eighties we have concentrated on developing welding solutions for the more complicated tasks.

AWG keeps the concept of flexible organization, which means that our customers can always get rapid response to their needs. Today we support our clients supplying high-quality consumables, equipment and know-how. Our company has the experience and resources to continuously improve quality of welding materials and equipment as well as productivity. From the very beginning we have supplied oru equipment and welding consumables to the most complicated projects in different types of enterprises together with modern welding technology. Close collaboration with our customers has always been an integral part of the development process.

AWG has expanded continuously during the last 17 years. Nowadays one of the biggest markets of AWG materials is Russian Federation. Today we place the orders at the big factories in different countries. All the materials are obligatory inspected. We make different types of tests to provide excellent quality of welding electrodes and wires.



• Solid wire products Chemical analysis of the specific wire batch, together with typical mechanical properties based on annual testing statistics.
• Coated electrodes: Low alloyed and stainless steel. All-weld metal chemical analysis of the specific batch, together with typical mechanical properties based on annual testing.
• Cored wires All-weld metal chemical analysis and mechanical properties of the specific batch. Standard inspection documents are free
of charge, but must be clearly
specified on the order.


Test report type 2.2 Shows typical values for chemical analysis and mechanical properties, according to the relevant data sheet. This information is not batch specific and is available free of charge.


Special certificates In addition to the above inspection documents, it is possible to receive certificates showing extended batch testing according to customer requirements, but these must be clearly specified in advance
on the order and will be charged according to current  laboratory testing fees.

AWG welding consumables are developed and tested in our laboratories in German. An important task here is to carry out quality control on electrodes from our production facilities.

Each batch must be tested and approved before it can be delivered to our customers. Our development department uses the laboratory for chemical analysis, metallurgical investigation and test welding, but the most important evaluation of new products is made together with our customers onsite.

During the last 17 years we have invested an exceptional proportion of our resources in product development and as a result we now have one of the finest stainless steel product ranges on the market.

 Low alloy and high strength steels are also given high priority. AWG was one of the first manufacturers in the industry to have its quality management system approved to ISO 9001. As part of this emphasis on quality, our production facilities are equipped with computer controlled dry powder weighing and mixing and continuous online control of extruded coating concentricity. This ensures consistency of coating composition and thickness and thereby reliability of the final product.



ISO 9001



There are always one or more success factors behind a good product.
In the case of AWG cored wires these are:

Exceptionally good wire feed characteristicsthanks to extremely clean wire surface.

Excellent operability characteristics and weld metal properties.

Consistently high quality from batch to batch, achieved when cored wire is manufactured under strict control.

Together these factors ensure that production at our customers runs with a minimum of interruptions.


AWG can today offer an extensive range of consumables for all welding
processes and applications.

You can choose from manual electrodes, flux cored wires, solid wires, TIG rods and submerged arc wires and fluxes – all available for unalloyed, low alloy and stainless steels.
These core products are complemented by a programme of carefully selected consumables for TIG, MIG/MAG and SAW.  In addition, in-depth knowledge and quality are a significant part of the total package we can offer the market place.





This electrode was developed for extremely crack-resistant joints  and surface welding on difficult-to-weld steels, e.g. hard-manganese steels, tool steels and spring steels as well as mixed joints, e.g. black-and-white joints.  Due to its good mechanical properties and corrosion-resistance and high tensile strength  the electrode can be used for a wide range of applications, i.e. repair and maintenance of machine parts and plant components like shafts and cog wheels as well as for tools. The electrode can be used for buffering layers under hard alloys. Due to a stable arc the electrode has excellent welding properties, creates a fine-rippled, easy-to-shape seam with easy-to-remove slag. The weld metal is stainless, warm-hardenable and work-hardenable.
