Welder Qualification Certification/Test is a process which examines and documents a welder’s capability to create welds of acceptable quality following a well-defined welding procedure that has already been tested and approved for production welding. This is done in the form of having each welder subjected to a weld test that simulated the approved Welding Procedure.
ARL specialize in developing Welding Procedures in accordance with your specifications and client’s requirements along with testing your welders so as to ensure they are compliant with the final requirements.
This is firstly carried out by one of our trained welding consultants talking with your Engineers/Production Supervisors to be able to develop the welding procedure that will ensure your production welds are fully compliant with the requirements. Then once our consultant has gathered all this information, they then go about developing the Welding Procedure in conjunction with running weld test coupon test plates. These are then taken back to our Mechanical Test Laboratory and are subjected to various destructive tests. If all of the results pass all of the testing, then the welding procedure is deemed qualified and approved
The next step is to test your welders in accordance with the Approved Welding Procedures so that Production Welding may commence.
For all your Welding Procedure/Welder Qualification Requirements, please contact ARL and let us do what we know best.
