Weld Inspection Services – CSWIP, PCN and CWI
MoreInspection’s weld inspection services ensure your welds meet required quality standards, leading to reduced failure rates and extending the potential operating life of components. Our welding specialists hold internationally recognized qualifications, including the Certification Scheme for Welding Inspection (CSWIP), Personnel Certification in Non-Destructive Testing (PCN), and Certified Welding Inspection (CWI).
Expertise in weld inspecting
With the Certification Scheme for Welding Inspection (CSWIP) and Personnel Certification in Non-Destructive Testing (PCN), our experts have in-depth knowledge and experience of manufacturing processes in all aspects of welding requirements to support your welding projects and staff. Their credentials include:
- Certified Welding Inspectors (CWI)
- Certified Welding Engineers (CWEng)
- International Welding Engineers (IWE)
MoreInspection’s CSWIP inspectors are qualified to 3.1 Welding Inspector and 3.2 Senior Welding Inspector levels with expertise involving ferrous and nonferrous materials.
Our approach to weld inspection and monitoring
It is vital to detect any problems with welds before they escalate or soon after they occur so they can be corrected as quickly as possible. Element’s weld inspectors evaluate the quality of welds at every step of the fabrication process before, during, and after welding. Following the authorization of the Preliminary or Proposed Weld Procedure Specification (pWPS) and the sourcing of the material and consumables, our CSWIP and PCN inspectors use calibrated equipment and data logging machines to confirm the joint configuration, set-up, temperatures and record all essential welding data of the new welding procedure.
