Visiting Leister Technologies AG - Sales meeting Ampack AG
Ampack AG is the market-leading supplier of systems for sealing the inner and outer building envelope against air, water, steam and other emissions. Based out of Rorschach, Switzerland, Ampack believes "A safe roof over the head" is a priority. For a safe roof, you need under-roof membranes, adhesive technology, and noise protection, among other things.
Company visit and sales meeting at Leister Technologies AG in Kägiswil
Ampack sells top-tier, roofing underlays, while Leister focuses on providing the highest-quality, welding equipment. This is one of the leading reasons why Ampack was interested in conducting a company visit to Leister, which resulted in a sales meeting to conclude the event.
The agenda was:
- Production visit at Leister Technologies AG
- Understanding thermal welding
- Practice workshop: thermal welding with the WELDY miniwelder roof2
- Alternative to swell welding: sustainable joining of under-roof membranes with hot wedge
Practice workshop with thermal welding with the miniwelder roof2 at Leister Application Technology in Kägiswil, Switzerland, April 2018
Workshop thermal welding with the miniwelder roof2
Head of Sales, René Zangerl, and Ampack's ten sales agents met Roland Beeler, Head of Businessline Plastic Fabrication - Roofing & Flooring and Sales Engineer Paul Röthlin at a joint workshop to learn about sustainable alternatives to source welding. While a few members were apprehensive before their first weld, they quickly became comfortable working with some of our finest machines. The miniwelder roof2, for example, can be used to weld roofing membranes thermally and homogeneously without the addition of adhesives.
René Zangerl was enthusiastic about the different welding options available, "Sustainability is also an important topic for Ampack. Therefore, it's very exciting for us to be able to show alternatives to swell welding. The thermal joining of the sub-roof membrane with the miniwelder roof2 convinced us. Especially in hot or humid conditions, thermal joining is a reliable process."
Next meeting with Ampack
The joint exchange between Ampack and Leister was beneficial for all participants. Further meetings are planned to follow. Next time Leister specialists plan to visit Ampack AG in Rorschach to get to know their application technology on site.
