Welder Training & Certification
Wegener Welding LLC announced that Rudi Schott and Patty Zitkus will be instructing the DVS plastic welder courses in October 2018 at their Burr Ridge facility. Two recertification sessions and three full course sessions will be offered.

Rudi Schott is a DVS certified welding instructor from the renowned SKZ group (Sueddeutsches Kunststoffzentrum, from Würzburg, Germany. His cohort and assistant is Patty Zitkus, a certified welder with Wegener Welding LLC in Burr Ridge, IL. They have been instructing the school together for the past seventeen years and are pleased to offer it again this October.

Although there is a qualification program available in the United States, this course is unique as it offers a true certification issued by an accredited association, DVS (German Welding Society). Wegener Welding LLC also performs educational courses in hot gas hand welding, hot gas extrusion welding, butt fusion as well as socket fusion throughout the year, tailored to fit customer’s individual needs.

Wegener Welding LLC has increased the types and amount of sheet butt welders, sheet bender and pipe welders available for hands-on experience. The ability to do process validation directly and at short notice for all these thermoplastics welding technologies is proving to be of great benefit to companies involved in fabrication and manufacturing. Please feel free to discuss any possible needs in any of these areas with any of the Wegener Welding LLC technical sales staff.
