Weldgalaxy Community Updates

Fri, 03 July, 2020

WeldGalaxy is a B2B online platform that will bring together global buyers and EU sellers of welding equipment along with auxiliaries/consumables and services. A digital platform aimed to enhance the visibility of EU’s welding products/prototypes/services to global users and providing innovative web-based services, WeldGalaxy aims to incorporate a Knowledge Based Engineering Tool that streamlines equipment selection process for end-users and allows ‘plug and produce’ digital manufacturing of the right equipment to specified customers’ /end users’ requirements and regulatory compliance. Funded by European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (Grant agreement 822106), the project is a collaborative initiative led by TWI with partners across UK and Europe.

The consortium is pleased to announce the publication of its 3rd Newsletter with updates from the WeldGalaxy community.


The consortium is pleased to get a commendation as ‘Business Ready’ following an analysis by the European Commission’s Innovation Radar. The WeldGalaxy B2B online platform has been found to address the needs of existing markets with TWI Ltd recognised as a “key innovator” in the development of the project. Find out more.


Ontologies express relationships that help us to link multiple concepts to other concepts in a variety of ways. The WeldGalaxy ontology and data model provides the basis for supporting information searching for knowledge discovery in components, such as the Knowledge Base Engineering (KBE) and Chatbot. Find out more.


WeldGalaxy also provides financial support to SMEs and Mid-Caps to develop innovative arc welding products and services via the launch of two Open Innovation Calls (OICs). A total of €2.5 million in equity-free funding will be allocated to fund 25 pilot projects. The first round of calls was successfully concluded with applications being evaluated by external welding experts to identify ten winners who will enter our interesting WeldGalaxy training programme. Find out more.


The WeldGalaxy DLT platform aims to decentralize business processes and workflows that take place among welding industry actors, thus facilitating trust, seamless data sharing, efficiency, traceability, auditability as well as obtaining other benefits of blockchain. Find out more.


This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant agreement 822106.
