In autumn 2012 was signed a protocol between Paton Electric Welding Institute of NAS of Ukraine and Steel Work. This protocol confirmed the intent to establish a museum in Krivoy Rog. The purpose of the project - a retrospective show of world-historical development in welding stepwise: manual labor - science - equipment - technology. At the same time, museum shows welding process as a permanent connection of metallic and non-metallic materials in different conditions and environments, including outer space and the oceans. Unique electric welding of soft living tissue opens up new possibilities to surgical technologies in modern medicine.

IMWRT is being founded as a unique cultural organization reflecting both welding heritage, its influence onto global manufacture and additive manufacturing achievements. The goal of IMWRT foundation is consolidation of educational, scientific and cultural resources of welding industry within Ukraine and CIS countries.
