Air Liquide has today launched a breakthrough packaged gas offer including a new generation of gas cylinder and suite of digital solutions designed to revolutionise the customer experience in welding.
Developed in collaboration with more than 700 welding customers, the French corporation said Qlixbi will improve the way welders use and manage gases in their daily operation.
Qlixbi will turn the act of welding into a user-friendly experience by making it easier, faster and safer, thanks to a mix of mechanical and digital innovations.
These will provide welders and welding shops with insights to help optimise their operations and increase efficiency. The main advantages of Qlixbi include:
Air Liquide developed Qlixbi through a design thinking approach involving its Research and Development teams from its Paris Innovation Campus, as well as Air Liquide Industrial Merchant operations and customers.
Guy Salzgeber, Executive Vice-President and member of the Air Liquide Group Executive Committee supervising Industrial Merchant World Business Line and Innovation commented, “Our new welding offer Qlixbi disrupts a more than a hundred years old business.”
“This showcases Air Liquide’s customer-centric transformation strategy, which leverages innovation and digital to deliver profitable growth and create value for the customers in the long term.”
