Welding Inspection

Welding Inspection (WI) typically consists of a series of quality control checks carried out by welding inspectors. It ensures welded joints meet required levels of quality and are fit for purpose. A range of welding inspection techniques may be applied, depending on factors such as welder and procedure approval, codes and standards, safe working practices, fusion welding processes, joint configuration, specific defects of interest and typical weld defects, material type/thickness, the hardening of steels, weldability, heat treatment and parent metal defects.
