Managing Welding Qualification Documentation with Welding Qualifier

TWI’s Welding Qualifier software is designed to keep track of the qualification documents for welding procedures (PQRS and WPSs) and welders (WPQs and continuity).

Welding Qualifier includes code rules from ASME IX, ISO 15614/9606 and AWS D1.1, relating specifically to essential variables, test requirements and ranges of approval. These help to ensure that the documentation you create is code compliant. This also helps you meet the requirements of ISO 3834 for quality assurance of your welding processes.

The software includes the following:

  • Databases of base materials and filler materials to help you identify groupings from ASME IX QW-422, ISO 15608 and AWS D1.1
  • Expiration reports and update facilities helping you keep your welder qualifications current
  • Powerful search and sort facilities to help you find documents and generate registers
  • A configurable dashboard showing information and lists relevant to your job function
  • An as-run function allowing all electrical parameters from a thick section procedure test to be recorded

Professional and flexible printing and PDF routines

Welding Qualifier can be accessed on your local PC, over a network, via remote desktop, or we can host the software for you here at TWI.
