Technical guidance on industrial welding


The uniqueness of our service in this field is based on the combination of knowledge of materials and welding processes. This is thanks to a multidisciplinary team of industrial welding engineers, metallurgical technicians and failure analysis/forensic joint welding engineering technologists.

In the field of industrial welding, market needs as well as new requirements and regulations are becoming increasingly demanding.

Our services are based on applying knowledge of welding processes (joint design, parameters, preheating temperatures, etc.) to a wide range of metal alloys and applications.
