A global partner for welding solutions.
Founded in 1975 as Seohan Development Co. Ltd., Hyundai Welding as it is known today is a world leader providing technical and innovative welding solutions.

With headquarters based in Seoul, Korea, they offer a wide range of advanced welding consumables, equipment and robotic solutions to solve the many needs of their global partners in the welding industry. 

'Hyundai' means Modern and we live up to its meaning.
Since its inception in 1975, Hyundai Welding has been an essential supplier to the leading Korean manufacturers in the Hyundai conglomerate.

Their combined efforts and breakthroughs in technology have allowed Hyundai Welding to become a leading innovater in the welding industry today. 

Hyundai are fully committed to understanding the needs and challenges of their customers. This then allows them to continually improve and innovate their products to provide exceptional world class welding solutions. 

World-Class research & development.
Hyundai Welding are dedicated to advancing welding technologies.

Their highly experienced team of engineers, metallurgists and technicians continually work side-by-side with end-users and industry partners, to research, invest and deliver solutions for the most demanding and challenging welding environments.

They continue to introduce new welding materials to continuously drive product reliability with extensive support from recognised research institutes. With their expertise and know-how, they have developed welding materials that are high performing, eco-friendly, and highly efficient.

Hyundai strive to work closer with their customers, to understand their needs, listen to their expectations and deliver customer-tailored services.
"We take great pride, like our tradition, in being innovators that continually refine and develop world class products that are helping to drive the industry forward."
Established Trust with Excellence in Quality.
Hyundai Welding is committed to quality standards and continuous product improvement.

Their advanced Research and Development facilities, experts and QA technicians drive Hyundai's consistent service to the highest quality and standard levels. 

All of their manufacturing is performed according to International Standards such as EN, AWS, ASME, JIS, etc. Hyundai have achieved approvals for most international societies, including: ABS, LR, DNV·GL, BV, NK, KR, CWB, TUV, DB, RINA, CRS, CCRS, RS, RRR, NAKS, UKRACEF and FBTS.

Hyundai is currently ISO 9001 (since 1994), ISO 14001 (since 2004) and ISO/TS 16949 (since 2004) certified, and their internal quality assurance teams are hard at work bringing a higher level of service and quality.
Stick Electrodes.
SMAW Electrodes (also known as Shielded Metal Arc Welding or Manual Metal Arc Welding) are a versatile, commonly used process where the arc is struck between an electrode and the workpiece. Both the electrode and the surface of the work piece melt to create a weld. Electrodes are wires with flux coated covering. Electrodes have various coating compositions which give the electrodes a distinctive set of characteristics.

Hyundai Welding's mission is to produce a selection of highest quality stick electrodes with a wide variety of coatings to maximise weld quality, provide correct weld strength, ensure easy slag removal, improved deposition rates, better bead quality and reduced spatter.
MIG Welding (also known as Gas Metal Arc Welding or GMAW) is currently the most commonly used welding process that provides particularly high welding speeds that can be used manually, mechanically, or robotically. MIG wire is a solid wire which feeds into the welding pool from a welding torch.

In contrary, TIG Welding (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding or GTAW) is a highly manual, precise, and versatile arc welding method which works better with thinner base materials and used as a process when a superior weld quality is needed.

The wire drawing process is hugely important in the production of welding wire to ensure quality welds. Hyundai Welding manufactures wires to the highest quality standards to ensure optimum quality when welding with their MIG and TIG wires, therefore leading to less welding defects and less post-weld cleaning.
FCAW (also known as Flux Cored Arc Welding or FCW) has evolved from the GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding or solid wire) welding process to improve metal transfer, weld metal properties, and weld appearance. Like GMAW, FCAW can be used manually, mechanically and also in a fully automated manner.

The main advantages of Flux Cored Wires are improved usability, superb weldability and higher deposition rates. Although higher upfront cost than solid wires, Flux Cored Wires could help you gain better savings through productivity and minimising post-weld work such as repair and cleaning.
Hardfacing & Other Consumables.
Hardfacing means welding surface layers of welding material on the base material on a worn or new component surface that is prone to wear and abrasion. Depending on the surface that needs welding, it is necessary to identify the appropriate hardfacing consumable (SMAW / FCAW / SAW) to acheive optimal wear protection and extend the life of the part. 

Hyundai Welding manufactures a wide range of hardfacing consumables for restoring worn parts and has developed products to protect against abrasion, erosion, corrosion, impact and extend the service life of the industrial component. 

In addition to hardfacing products, Hyundai also provides a range of other welding consumables including gouging electrodes, tungsten electrodes and ceramic backing materials. 

Sustainability is part of Hyundai's ongoing journey.
In all processes for their sourcing and production, Hyundai Welding take responsibiltiy and strive to reduce environmental impact of their operations with lean and clean production as well as sustainable resources together with their suppliers.
