Welding Software

Webinars 26 May 2021

Welding procedure qualifications and welder qualifications are an important part of a fabricators quality system and poor management of this documentation can lead to expensive non-conformances, defective welds and rework. The codes and standards which define the content and rules of this documentation is complex and changes frequently.

Tracking production welding information with a bespoke software system gives many benefits including verification of welders, WPSs, filler material, instant progress and performance reporting and automatic implementation of quality plans.

This webinar will give updates on TWI’s Welding Qualifier and Welding Coordinator software, showing the important features and latest developments of both applications.

You will see creation and updating of welder qualifications and welding procedures and the latest features of the Welding Coordinator, including mobile data entry and the setup of automatic quality plans.


Who should attend:

  • Welding Engineers and anyone who has responsibility for creating and maintaining welding procedures and welder qualifications.
  • Production supervisors, NDE personnel and others involved in managing production welding activities or the associated documentation.
