Applus+ in Canada has entered into an agreement with a national agency for the provision of welder qualification testing.
Welder qualification testing involves the assessment of a welding operator’s ability to produce a sound weld in accordance with a given specification. During the test, a welding operator produces a test coupon.
Applus+ then performs appropriate radiographic or mechanical tests of the weld coupon, determined by the code requirements. The assessment performed by Applus+ seeks to ensure that the welding operator can produce a weld that conforms with the requirements of the relevant welding standard.
Welder qualification testing is one of the integrated professional services offered by Applus+ in support of welding operations. Related services include:
Applus+ has experience with a variety of welding codes, including CSA, AWS, ASME & ISO, and is capable of developing welding procedures for marine classification societies (Lloyds, DNV, ABS) for a wide range of materials.
