For Welding Industry


           Advan-kt's R&D wing is mainly focusing on industrial consultation, specifically for the welding industry. We have researched and developed a complete system for servo based resistance spot welding machine. Our system can improve the spot welds from 7 to 20 years lifespan by eliminating the internal pores.
