Welding inspection during welding operations should
include all the audit parameters to verify that the welding is performed to the procedures. Such tasks may include the following:

Quality Assurance

Establish a quality assurance and quality control team
with the welding organization.

Quality control items to assess:

  • Welder is responsible for quality craftsmanship of
  • Welder meets qualification requirements
  • Welder understands welding procedure and requirements
    for the work.
  • Special training and mock-up weldments performed if
  • Welder understands the inspection hold-points.

Potential inspector actions:

Review welder performance with welding organization as below

Welding Parameters and Techniques

Confirm welding parameters and techniques are supported
by the WPS and WPQ.

Quality control items to assess:

1.Essential variables are being met during welding.
  • Filler material, fluxes, and inert gas composition/flow
  • Purge technique, flow rate, O2 analysis, etc.
  • Rod warmers energized or where rod warmers are not
    employed, the welder complies with maximum exposure
    times out of the electrode oven.
  • Preheating during tack welding and tack welds
    removed (if required).
  • Welding technique, weld progression, bead overlap,
  • Equipment settings such as amps, volts, and wire
  • Preheat and interpass temperatures.
  • Travel speed (key element in heat input).
  • Heat input (where appropriate).
2. Mock-up weldment, if required, meets requirements with welder and welding engineer.
3. Welder displays confidence and adheres to good welding practices.

Potential inspector actions:

  • Review mock-up weldment problems with welding
  • Review welder quality with welding organization.

Weldment Examination

Complete physical checks, visual examination, and in-process

Quality control items to assess:

  • Tack welds to be incorporated in the weld are of acceptable
  • Weld root has adequate penetration and quality.
  • Cleaning between weld passes and of any back-gouged
    surfaces is acceptable.
  • Additional NDE performed between weld passes and on
    back-gouged surfaces shows acceptable results.
  • In-process rework and defect removal is accomplished.
  • In-process ferrite measurement, if required, is performed
    and recorded.
  • Final weld reinforcement and fillet weld size meets work
    specifications and drawings.

These are the tasks welding inspector course fees. Trainings for welders, trainings for Welding inspections, Courses and Certification for performing  NDT, consultancies for welding procedure Specification WPS , Welder qualification in Coimbatore etc., are readily available globally everywhere, for more assistance contact experts at https://aqcinspection.com/ .
