The producer of cutting-edge aerial work platforms

Excellent steel welding quality guaranteed with FastMig X

Being a leading manufacturer of aerial work platforms in the Italian market, high-quality welds are essential to Socage in ensuring the durability and stability of their products. The excellent performance and reliability of FastMig X were the main reasons why Socage chose to rely on Kemppi products.

Socage was founded in 1974 as a constructor of metal pieces, but it was only in 1981 that the company decided to specialize in aerial work platforms and quickly established itself as a leader in the Italian market. Today, after more than four decades of innovation and commitment to high standards and its customers, Socage has opened subsidiaries all over the globe and gained a long list of success stories.

Socage plans to grow through continuous investments in emerging markets and research and become the world’s leading manufacturer of aerial work platforms. Known for its Italian design, the company now aims to have its aerial work platforms recognized for premium quality and reliability. All production steps are meticulously supervised by specialists to ensure that the final products are defect-free and follow the current standards.

FastMig X tackles the challenges of thin materials

Both Kemppi Italy's team and local Kemppi dealer, Arcosald, knew that the perfect solution for Socage’s welding needs was FastMig X. It is a multi-process CC/CV power source that is ideal for synergic and pulsed MIG/MAG as well as TIG, and stick welding (MMA). Supplied with WFX-T wire feeders, the FastMig X forms a welding system that easily meets every welding need and the quality management requirements of any metal fabrication workshop.

After various tests and demonstrations, Kemppi delivered 10 FastMig X 350 to Socage. Having used them now for several months, the welders are very satisfied with how the welding machines are performing.

In order to ensure that the highest quality standards are achieved, Socage also decided to use only Kemppi’s original consumables. This choice was necessary in order to tackle their main challenge: material overheating. Most of the metals used are high-strength steel like S700, S900, and S1200. As stated by the welders in the production area:

"When you weld thin materials, they tend to overheat and deform so we need to be sure we are using the best resources we can get."
