Absence of well-defined procedures without enforcement can lead to headaches when it comes to running a welding organization. Quality control starts with easy-to-understand, written procedures and work instructions that clearly define how a process or task is to be performed. These procedures and work instructions can contain information including, but not limited to, purpose, scope, responsibilities, safety, references, definitions and step-by-step instructions. These documents are typically supplemented by references such as data sheets, Codes, standards and specifications.
Lack of weld process controls can lead to inconsistent weld quality, rework, increased scrap and safety concerns. In some instances, failure of a component could result in significant monetary loses, injuries and/or death. Moreover, a company’s reputation could be damaged or even result in legal penalties if contractual agreements are not followed.
Whether your organization is in need of implementing new procedures, work-instructions and datasheets, or updating existing ones, Advanced Welding Solutions has you covered.
Examples: weld quality documentation (PQR/WPS) and control, cleaning (pre & post-weld), sharpening of tungsten electrodes, qualification of welder and welding operators, control of metal joining consumables
