Vladimir Kononov noted that Rusweld 2021 is a young, gaining authority and professional recognition international exhibition for welding and cutting equipment, materials and technologies. It is no coincidence that it is included in the NTI Expo (Research-Technology-Innovations Expo) project, which is aimed at implementation of state programmes in science and technology, education, digital economy, industry, transport infrastructure, energy.

Rusweld has become an important component of the Russian Industry Week, said Vladimir Kononov. The exhibition brings together manufacturers, suppliers and consumers of welding equipment and products. The Rusweld exhibition is designed to showcase the industry's advanced solutions and best global practices.

Nikolay Aleshin reminded that the home of welding is Russia and there is reason to be proud. Spending on welding this year amounts to 62 billion dollars. No other industry can boast such figures. "Welding as a science is developing very harmoniously in our country today," Nikolay Aleshin added. There are 32 departments in educational institutions, where specialists are trained at a very high level.

Nikolay Gusev expressed his gratitude to the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, under whose auspices the exhibition is held, the National Agency of Welding Control, the Aluminium Association and the Russian Association of Robotics for their support in organising this important event.

An important topic at Rusweld 2021 was non-destructive testing of operating properties and parameters of welded joints and products to detect defects. A number of events from the forum's conference programme are dedicated to current trends in the development of non-destructive testing, technical diagnostics and condition monitoring, industry-specific solutions, technologies for automation and digitalisation of NDT tools.

The exhibition runs till October 21.
