Advanced inspecion and characterization of weldings and welded elements

In joining technologies, welding processes play a fundamental role for the metal-mechanic industry. From the manufacture of large structures for highly demanding sectors, such as Oil & Gas, Naval, Energy, Railway, Civil Works or Automotive, to performing simple repairs on deteriorated parts, the application of welding processes is key to give a satisfactory answer to the multiple needs.

The UNE-EN ISO 9000 standards consider welding processes to be special because, once executed, their quality cannot always be fully verified. Hence the importance of the procedures, controls and tests that have to be carried out to ensure their correct execution and performance.

Main international standards of reference

UNE-EN ISO 15614, UNE-EN ISO 9606, UNE-EN ISO 14732, UNE-EN ISO 17639, ASME IX, ASME V, ASME VIII, UNE-EN ISO 17637, UNE-EN ISO 5817, UNE-EN ISO 3452-1, UNE-EN ISO 23277, UNE-EN ISO 11666, UNE-EN ISO 17640, UNE-EN ISO 16811, UNE-EN ISO 23278, UNE-EN 1090-2, AWS D1.1/D.1,1 M, UNE-EN ISO 17781, UNE-EN 10225, UNE-EN ISO 10042.
