Weldscope provides welding inspection, supervision, and consultancy services to service all states and territories in Australia, and offshore. We have accredited welding inspectors and supervisors that have extensive knowledge and experience to follow specific welding techniques that guarantee high quality weld results. Weldscope holds IWS accreditation for international requirements.
Weldscope works in conjunction with associated NATA accredited companies to provide welding inspection/supervision, NDT methods and mechanical testing to the petrochemical, construction and manufacturing industries.
Weldscope provides expertise in welding supervision & inspection of pressure vessels & boilers, structural & stainless steel, specialised metals like titanium & nickel alloys and aluminium.
Paint inspections are carried out by a NACE certified coating inspector who is familiar with all aspects that contribute to optimal performance of a coating, and the specific standards each coating should individually meet.
The coating inspection process starts with inspecting the substrate and the environment, which becomes part of a coating specification.
Qualification of welding procedures involves the verification of the successful combining of techniques and materials for producing acceptable components through welding. These components must possess approved mechanical features and comply with Australian Standards for welding.
To ensure the accuracy of a welding procedure specification, our experts assist you in developing and evaluating welding processes during a welding procedure qualification test-weld (WPQR). Test pieces coupons are inspected with the use of both mechanical and non-mechanical testing prior to issuing the procedure qualification report. Mechanical tests include tensile strength testing, "V" notch impact testing, bend testing, macro etching examinations and hardness testing. Non-destructive visual reports and ultrasonic scan testing is also available.
Weldscope develops and produces certificates for Welding Qualification Procedure Records and Weld Procedure Specifications, incorporating visual examinations, non-destructive testing, and destructive tests conducted in the lab, all with comprehensive result reports.
To comply with Australian Standards, a welder or, welding operator, must perform welding procedures that completely satisfy the relevant Australian Standards for structural steelwork, pressure vessels, tanks, piping, stud welding, welding of reinforcing steelwork (rebar) stainless steels, aluminium and other non-ferrous metals.
All certified welders must have the skills and knowledge needed to perform high-quality welding procedures to consistently produce welds for products to comply with Australian Standards; displaying high quality visual properties.
Your business can benefit from Weldscope's experienced and thorough professional qualification processes for welders and welding procedures in various important ways, including the following:
