Fronius International GmbH is active worldwide in welding, photovoltaic & battery charging technology. This global market leader in robotic welding specializes in arc & resistance spot welding. Ars Electronica Solutions conceived and implemented the company’s stand at this year’s SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN, the world’s premier trade show for welding and cutting technology held September 25-29, 2017 in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Beneath the arc of light is the WeldCube, a physical cube in which the streams of digital data from the individual welding stations flow together. Integrated into the cube are picture screens that portray the object in a figurative sense as an intelligent organism.
The live transmission shows the first-person view of the welder. At stations in the Communication Area, Fronius staffers can access all information available in the system in conjunction with presentations to visitors. Plus, there’s the Reference Wall, an interactive globe that displays Fronius’ worldwide distribution network as well as the company’s reference clients.
