Lincoln Electric acquires Inrotech

Lincoln Electric has acquired Inrotech. Headquartered in Odense, Denmark, Inrotech is a privately held automation system integration and technology firm specializing in automated welding systems.

Inrotech says its automated welding systems are differentiated by proprietary adaptive intelligence software and computer vision which guides and optimizes the welding process without the need for programming or the use of CAD files.

The vision-based technology has proven to be valuable in the shipbuilding, energy, and heavy industry sectors, where welding accessibility can be challenging for traditional automated systems, but precision and quality are mission critical.

Mike Whitehead, Lincoln Electric’s senior vice president, president of global automation, cutting and additive solutions, says: “We are pleased to welcome the Inrotech team to Lincoln Electric and are excited to expand the reach of their automated welding systems and incorporate their proprietary vision-based adaptive intelligence technology across a broader range of Lincoln systems, enabling the next generation of welding solutions.”

Henrik Lenskjold, CEO of Inrotech, says: “We are excited to join Lincoln Electric and realize the enormous untapped value our technology can offer customers worldwide when combined with Lincoln’s extensive welding and automation expertise.”

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
