OTC DAIHEN celebrating welding roots with open house

OTC DAIHEN, a supplier of manual and robotic welding systems, plans to celebrate multiple company anniversaries with an open house featuring 11 technical demonstrations Wednesday, May 22, at its USA Headquarters in Tipp City OH. 

DAIHEN Corporation began business 100 years ago as Osaka Transformer Company (OTC) in 1919, manufacturing power transformers for the growing industrial age. In 1934, production commenced on electric welding machines, beginning a legacy of advancing welding technology. Innovation expanded to arc welding robots in 1980, securing the company’s influence on automated welding. 

DAIHEN has a reputation for advancing the technology of manual and robotic welding systems. Forty years ago, in 1979, the company brought its welding systems to the United States with the establishment of OTC DAIHEN.
