Carrs Welding Technologies started in business repairing and refurbishing mould tools in 1992; in the late 90’s we started investing heavily in laser welding equipment and most people in the industry consider us to be at the very cutting edge of the technology.

As a result our business has expanded and diversified considerably, but we still carry out a multitude of tool repairs every week for our valued mould customers on three of our laser stations dedicated to breakdowns and jobs requiring rapid turnaround on an immense variety of sometimes exotic metal components.

The world’s foremost laser welding system makers, Rofin, Trumpf and Alpha are our chosen equipment suppliers and we have twelve systems installed for welding all nature of jobs, small, medium and large. Our highly skilled workforce undergoes rigorous training before embarking on production work and benefits from regular refresher courses on our constantly updated systems.
