TWI’s mission is to provide members and stakeholders with authoritative and impartial expert advice, knowhow and safety assurance through engineering, materials and joining technologies.

This requires TWI to have the ability to design and implement solutions to long-term industrial challenges and technologies to exploit emerging opportunities, which is impossible without the ability to validate the solutions and technologies in a laboratory.

TWI maintains extensive laboratories and expert technician teams, with the abilities to design, build, evaluate and improve technologies for (i) welding, joining, coating, additive manufacture and cutting, (ii) material, component and structural testing, and (iii) inspection and monitoring. These are complemented by materials characterisation and analysis facilities, used to identify root causes of industrial problems and to support the design and implementation of industrial solutions, including manufacture of prototypes and one off repairs.
