Kaloper (PT KajianLogamPersada) has a long story with a strong reason when it was established.
Mr. Titus Purba, the founder of this company, was once worked in one of the oil company in East Kalimantan as a Chief Engineer. One day, he got a book on welding wire product. He found that this book contained information about “How to Weld Cast Iron WithoutPreheat.” He continued to read this book until he realized that this book wasn’t only explaining about repair weld products, but also weld products which can save the operation cost by increasing the service life of a component with “Hardfacing Technology”.
Mr. Purba, who was very interested in that book was once in a vacation in Surabaya. There, he found an advertisement from that special welding wire product agency. The advertisement was about job vacancy which required several Mechanical Engineers who have experience in the oil company. Mr. Purba finally had to take his decision. He resigned from his previous job in the oil company and took that new job as an Application Specialist.
Started from the information in that small book, Mr. Purba had a chance to fathom welding technology in New York in 1985. He also got a chance to learn more about Superalloy, Metal Spray, Wearing Component and the other materials which give Life Prolong Factor in Liburdy Gas Turbine Services in the same year in Canada. In 1986 he created PT Kaloper (PT KajianLogamPersada) based on his experience in Metallurgy.
