Software Development at TWI

Software has become an integral part of everything we do, from the smart phone that allows you to connect with colleagues anywhere in the world and the robots that build parts defect-free, to the expert systems enabling engineers to make critical decisions.

TWI has been creating software since the mid 1980s, initially to support welding engineering, before moving onto fitness for service assessments and then to more industry areas to support our Members. Today, software solutions from TWI are in place around the world and used by organisations to enable them to deliver the service they require.


We are uniquely placed for software development. With our extensive expertise in engineering, we are able to create software solutions for all industry sectors under one roof. One of the main issues in software development is often the human/computer interaction element. With the mix of skills at TWI we understand the end users’ needs and requirements right from the start as engineers are part of the team from the inception of a software project.

Our current portfolio of skills and products include welding engineering, fitness for service, data analysis, robotics, NDE and IoT connectivity, to name but a few. Being a research based organisation run by our Members for our Members, we have no obligation to certain hardware or products so we are uniquely placed to offer a complete and impartial software service.
