Brazilians love people, soccer and now also ultrasonic welding for plastic. In 30 degree weather nearly 30 customers and leads crowded out the rooms at the Herrmann Tech-Center in Indaiatuba (near Sao Paulo).
CEO Thomas Herrmann welcomed attendees and introduced the company while Andreas Haug held all subsequent workshops in Portuguese: the basics of ultrasonic welding, joint designs and material properties. The scope of participants was wide-spread – from automotive machine builders to producers of filters and material supplier Dow Chemical.
During breaks lively discussions about applications for ultrasonic welding were held. Thomas, who celebrated his birthday that same day, was personally very touched when the crowd sang him a birthday song at lunch and presented him with a cake.
