Welder verification



As a general rule, MIG/MAG, manual metal arc welding, and WIG systems can be calibrated. Metal-processing companies certified to a standard are required to calibrate their welding equipment on a regular basis. The standards covered here include the ISO 9000 series as well as EN ISO 3834-2, which set out the principles for the quality assurance process for welded products. EN 1090 defines the production standards and CE markings for steel and aluminum supporting structures. A manufacturer who complies with the standards will find themselves in a position to gain their customers’ trust and to build up a reputation as a professional enterprise. Not to mention that being able to prove calibration has been performed can come in handy in the event of complaints.

There’s no denying that regular system maintenance comes at a cost. But it’s nothing compared to the price you will pay if you cannot prove that your production process is in line with the standards in the event of damage occurring. Remember that accidents can cause harm to people as well as steel constructions. With that in mind, it is a company’s responsibility toward their customers to guarantee product quality and regularly calibrating welding machines is the first step on the path to achieving this.
