‘Visitors to the stand will be able to talk to our welding application specialists at Nampo about their applications and possible solutions, but we also encourage customers that are interested in obtaining more detailed information about the 360-degree capability to visit the Afrox technology application centre in Germiston after the show, where customised applications and/or training can be facilitated more comprehensively,’ says Pieterse.
Visitors can also look forward to interactive welding displays on the Afrox stand, and have the opportunity to test the welding machines and equipment. In addition, Afrox application specialists and the 2018 SAIW Welder of the Year winners will be performing live welding demonstrations showcasing MMA, TIG and MIG welding for farming applications.
A major attraction on the Afrox stand at last year’s show, the Welder of the Day competition will once again give visitors the chance to test their welding skills in knockout rounds to compete for top welding honours. The best welder each day will walk away with the fantastic prize of a new Afrox welding machine, welding helmet and a pack of Vitemax welding electrodes.
Exclusive show-only promotions on commonly used products in the farming environment will include Vitemax, Afrox’s leading premium electrode for mild steel applications, and the Afrox exclusive Agrigas and Porta range of gas cylinders, giving farmers the option of acquiring a cylinder without paying any rental fees.
This range consists of the PortaPak oxygen and acetylene cylinders as well as the Portashield (shielding gas suitable for MIG welding) and PortaTIG (shielding gas suitable for TIG welding) cylinders.
Customers purchasing items on promotion at the show can take advantage of the ‘pay and collect’ service and collect their purchases from their nearest Afrox branch at their convenience.
The Afrox range of gases, welding and cutting equipment, together with associated consumables, is available through the Afrox online shop, co-ops, certain local distributors and Afrox retail outlets in the region. Agrigas is exclusively available via approved co-ops.
