Infrared for the Highest Demands

Jörg Wermelinger, Manager of Strategic Innovation Projects, has been with Georg Fischer for 22 years. He was on the project team that developed the IR fusion process and made it market-ready.

Early in 1990, to be exact in April 1990, we began developing the contact-free fusion technology. The goal was to launch the new butt fusion fi ttings successfully on the market. So, we wanted to offer a fusion process which would enable joining our PP and PVDF plastic pipes and fi ttings fast and reproducibly.
