The qualification/certification of processes are a fundamental part of all welding technological quality systems and thus an important requirement for the welding technological manufacturing.
To be able to weld e.g. according to DIN EN 1090-2 or in the scope of the pressure equipment directive, the welding procedures has to be qualified.
We know that our costumers have to react fast and flexible to diverse requirements and that the implementation of certification processes is subject to ever shorter periods of time. Together with you we hit the ground running, thus your WPQ test is our highest priority.
Our costumer promise is the presence of the WPQR within four weeks - at no extra charge, without a catch.
Of course we also offer the report a a certified WPQR according to pressure device directive 2014/68/EU.
Procedure test can be carried out for you for a welding relevant metallic materials and virtually all welding procedures. Furthermore we qualify the following procedures: thermal cutting, flame straightening, punching, thermal spraying and hard brazing. Of course we consult you on the ideal choice of test pieces and parameters and the generation of a instruction (e.g. pWPS)
We also support you with the implementation of the procedure in your manufacturing process. It will be reviewed in our own laboratory - accredited according to DIN EN IDO 17025.
Procedure testings for the hard brazing according to DIN EN 13134 can be necessary because of guidelines, costumer demand or as a part of the own quality assurance. We help you with a useful selection of test procedures, the creation of a temporary procedure instruction and the immediate derivation of the brazing certificate according to DIN EN ISO 13585 guideline 2014/68/EU.
In the scope of application according to DIN EN 1090-2/-3 the suitability of thermal cutting processes (flame cutting/plasma cutting) has to be checked regularly. Dependent on the execution class (EXC 2 to EXC4) there are accurately defined requirements to roughness, perpendicularity and and slant tolerance as well as the hardness of the cut surface. The test pieces are tested with a test procedure that is developed and accredited specifically for this purpose.
In this case we welcome you to address you expert from our materials laboratory. Please ask them, if a express service withhin the instructed material test is possible. Our professional experts will immediately check if a shorter lead time would be achievable.
If the conditions in our materials laboratory permit an "express processing", we will inform you about the corresponding express charge and initiate the processing based on your order.
