Services and Support

We can help you at every stage of the design, creation, operation and decommissioning of your products or assets – through effective understanding and application of welding, joining, inspection and allied technologies. 

Industrial Membership grants you immediate access to welding engineers and joining/inspection process specialists via phone or e-mail. This can extend to full consultancy support (including on-site visits) and through to contract R&D projects.

TWI’s single client projects bring together experts from TWI and the Member to provide solutions directly focused on assisting the Member’s business. The work undertaken is confidential with the outcomes and associated intellectual property owned exclusively by the client.

Pre-paid consultancy allowance (PCA) to the value of 20% of your Membership fee can be used to fund, or offset the cost of a range of engineering support activities outlined below:

Industrial Members can now sponsor an event facilitated by TWI to create innovative solutions to complex technological challenges.

‘The Grand Challenge’ event creates innovative solutions for industrial problems which is supported by a panel of experts from across TWI and associated supply chain organisations.

The workshop process captures many innovative opportunities in a spirit of co-operation and openness across the many suppliers selected who also gain valuable insights for their future development in support of the ‘The Grand Challenge’. This approach fosters rapid technology development based on world leading approaches and ensures a comprehensive solution is achieved based on your product requirements.

You can see an example of a 'Grand Challenge' here.
