Understanding processes

Improving results

Würth Solutions is the digital and service brand of Eisenwerk Würth, and is a driver of innovations for optimisation and transparency in the area of blasting. With the spirit of a start-up and the experience of a traditional medium-sized company, we aim to gain a superior understanding of blasting processes driven by data and evidence, and to create the basis for greater efficiency, quality and sustainability, as well as an optimum interplay between people, blasting media and blasting systems.

Creativity, technology and the networking of know-how are the tools that take us forward. We are and remain open to new approaches, and consistently develop ideas that bring sustainable improvements to the area of blasting.
Our offers
Cost assessments
Using transparency to achieve added efficiency: holistic commercial considerations and cost calculations require a good data basis. With Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences and selected pilot customers, we have developed a tool for recording costs that highlights potential savings.

Blasting process assessments
Our experienced technicians will inspect and assess the overall condition of your blasting system(s). Impending problems can be tackled and hidden potential can be exploited. You will benefit from our advice on how to improve the performance and efficiency of your blasting system.

Accompanying in-process control (IPC)
To keep an eye on the condition of the system, the quality and any process fluctuations, we make use of sieve analyses. Excessive consumption of blasting media, leakages, contamination and system malfunctions can be identified more quickly in this way.

Initial sample and process development
Everything the market has to offer in terms of blasting technology is available at our technical centre. We carry out sampling and blasting tests, and can also blast small batches on a contract basis. For regular, larger-scale contract work, we can help you to find the suitable partners.

Expertise

Viewing blasting processes holistically?

We open up new insights for you.

Academy
We offer practically-oriented training and qualification courses for system operators, QA, maintenance and management staff. The goals should be the optimum operation and monitoring of the system, maintaining and repairing the system economically, and quantifying the blasting results.

Consulting
Are you planning to purchase a new blast machine or to modernise/convert an existing one? Our independent experts advise and support you so that the result fulfils your requirements. Benefit from our comprehensive network and our direct market access.

Upgrading
Precision sieve analyses coupled with practically-oriented recommendations from our experienced technologists are our daily business. Networking and digitalisation, as well as blasting 4.0 developed by Würth Solutions, provide you with the tools for forward-looking manufacturing.

Guardian
Processes can slowly get out of control due to wear or incorrect operation and maintenance. This often leads to expensive re-blasting processes, increased paint consumption, problems with paint adhesion due to contaminated surfaces, or even production downtime because of fire or customer complaints. We therefore offer solutions for long-term stable and optimised processes as a condition for safe preventive maintenance.

Support
Together with you, our experienced technicians assess your blasting processes in detail and document the results, which can be used to develop specifications and suitable, process-safe solutions.

APCon
Sustainability and cost-effectiveness are implemented through digital real-time monitoring of the key parameters on the blasting system. The patented APCon system creates transparency and sheds light on the black box known as the blasting process.

Eisenwerk Würth

Know-how isn’t created overnight.

That’s something we have known that for more than 100 years.

100 years of Eisenwerk Würth – in English, Würth Ironworks – a company story full of ups and downs, shaped by energetic and courageous people who have made this family business what it is today: an ironworks that convinces not by its size, but by quality, experience and innovative spirit. A company that began with the pioneering work of founder Julius Würth to discontinue the use of quartz sand, which was extremely harmful to health, and to introduce metallic blasting abrasives, is being continued by us confidently today. We are not afraid to take a critical look at the usual processes, technologies, materials and our own actions, to put them to the test and, where necessary, to optimise them. This is how we achieve the best possible result for you, your customers, our employees and the environment. Eisenwerk Würth combines tradition with progress. Therefore, as the next logical step, in addition to our high-quality range of abrasives under the Würth Strahlmittel (blasting abrasives) brand, since 2019, we have also offered blasting process optimisation with Würth Solutions. This means that you benefit from our experience and expertise in all areas of the blasting process.
