Prequalified Welding Procedures

In conformance with AWS D1.1 Structural Welding Code - Steel

Coming soon…


If you own or run a business in which welding is the primary or one of the most important industrial processes you know that having documented welding procedures is absolutely necessary. It may be needed to as part of a Quality Control Program.  It may be needed to satisfy contract documents of jobs that are being quoted.  Or, most importantly, they may be needed to assure quality.

So if this is so important why do so few fabricators have welding procedures?  When we ask this is what we hear:

  • We don’t know how to develop a welding procedure
  • We do not have a CWI or Welding Engineer on staff
  • It’s too expensive to hire someone to do this for us
  • We don’t understand how to follow welding codes
  • We pass on jobs that require qualified and/or documented welding procedures
  • Our welders don’t need them, they are very experienced

The list goes on and on.
