Pulsar Ltd., a firm specializing in magnetic pulse welding, has secured the first sale of its magnetic pulse welding system in Korea. Provided in the framework of the Pulsar Research and Education Program (PREP), the sale to Korea's prestigious Research Institute of Industrial Science and Technology (RIST) is both a commercial and technological milestone for the company.
RIST plans to use the Pulsar system to develop processes for joining aluminum to copper tubes. This research is particularly applicable to the production of heat exchangers used with solar, geothermal and other renewable energy sources.
‘As one of the world's most important industrial powers, we have long considered sales in Korea a strategic goal – just as we consider PREP as an excellent way to further both business and R&D goals,’ says Rani Plaut, CEO of Pulsar.
