Welding inspection is a crucial aspect of quality control—it ensures that welded joints are correctly executed to Australian and International Standards.

welding inspectionInspection helps to prevent dangerous and unsafe outcomes and plays a large role in guaranteeing overall structural integrity.

A Weld Australia International Welding Engineer (IWE) can perform a welding quality risk assessment using a 5×5 matrix of likelihood versus consequence, providing a level of assurance that the major risks have been identified and appropriate mitigation methods applied. Weld Australia’s IWE experts provide third-party independent inspection of new or in-service equipment on behalf of clients and manufacturers.

The use of inspection services prevents the risk of non-compliance and defects resulting in the need for repair, replacement, financial loss and unsafe conditions.

Our Welding Inspection Services

Weld Australia’s welding inspection services include:

  • Monitoring of welding operations in Australia and overseas
  • Preparation and monitoring of shut-downs
  • Inspection of road signs and structures
  • Inspection of civil engineering structures
  • Management of equipment assets and criticality studies
  • Welding quality assurance certification to ISO 3834
  • Technical support for projects.

IWEs can undertake different types of inspections to evaluate the quality of work. Visual welding inspections examine post-processed welds for material discontinuities, fractures, overlaps and other operation errors before making an assessment of compliance.

A comprehensive evaluation incorporates inspection before the welding work has commenced, allowing IWEs to identify fabrication configuration problems and make correct measures before welding begins. Technology can also be utilised for inspections. Sophisticated instruments such as ultrasound and radiography can non-destructively probe a welded join and evaluate its integrity.
