As a third party organisation and test house, one of our services is conducting Welding Procedure Qualification tests and Welder Qualification tests; along with welding trials and welder training.
For welding procedures & welder tests we use qualified engineering technicians who are Senior Welding Inspectors, CSWIP or AWS Certified Welding Inspectors and IIW Welding Technologists or Specialists. Overseeing this we have a Level 3 BINDT Registered Consultant and an IIW Welding Specialist.
Now that the CE marking requirement is in force, as an Inspection Body we provide technical advice and consultancy for fabricators Welding Co-ordinators working closely with them to comply with the requirements of ISO 3834 and EN 1090. This typically involves establishing and providing NDT and Approving welding procedures, welder qualification tests and welder prolongation.
Mechanical testing is carried out either In-house or on behalf of Ultramag by
another UKAS approved test laboratory.
We also offer classroom training for welders and welding co-ordinators or practical welder training at your premises followed by testing if required.
