Welding Procedure Qualification Records

Proving the quality of your welded connections!

Companies are increasingly asked to demonstrate compliance with international quality standards. Your client may also impose additional requirements with regard to the geometrical and mechanical properties. With a well-thought-through welding procedure qualification record, you can demonstrate that the required mechanical properties can also be achieved in practice.

Extensive analysis of the required welding procedures

Weldmij can support you during the certification process. Based on our experience and extensive knowledge of standards, we can carry out a thorough analysis of the essential parameters and areas of coverage that are applicable to you. A well-thought-through inventarisation of the base metal type and geometry of a test piece beforehand, can benefit future welding activities. The qualification records can be designed for your current activities, based on the principle that these qualification records can also be used for future expansion of your activities.

Insufficient or excessive heat treatment during welding of the test pieces may result in rejection or unnecessary preheating during production. A smart assessment beforehand pays for itself several times over at a later stage!
