Welding Inspection Services and Document Review

Welding inspection is a crucial quality assurance process that involves the examination and assessment of welded joints to ensure they meet specified standards, codes, and project requirements. The primary goal of welding inspection is to verify the quality and integrity of welds, prevent defects, and ensure the safety and reliability of welded structures and components.

Visual Inspection

Visual inspection is the most common type and involves a visual examination of the weld to detect surface defects, such as cracks, porosity, incomplete fusion, and weld discontinuities. Welding inspectors use various tools and instruments, including magnifiers and cameras, for detailed visual assessments.

Non-Destructive Testing (NDT)

NDT methods, such as radiographic testing, ultrasonic testing, magnetic particle testing, and dye penetrant testing, are employed to assess the internal quality of welds without damaging the weld or the base material.

Destructive Testing

Destructive testing involves taking samples or specimens from welded joints to subject them to physical tests, such as tensile testing, bend testing, and impact testing. These tests determine the mechanical properties and weld quality.

Pre-Inspection Preparation

Before welding inspection begins, welding procedures and welder qualifications should be reviewed to ensure they comply with standards. Inspection plans and checklists are also prepared to guide the inspection process.

In-Process Inspection

During welding, inspectors may conduct in-process inspections to verify that welding parameters, joint preparation, and welder techniques meet the specified requirements. This helps prevent issues before they become critical.


Comprehensive records and documentation of the inspection process are maintained. Inspection reports include details on inspection findings, test results, welder qualifications, and any required corrective actions.

Prepare and /or review Manufacturers DATA Reports (MDR’S)

Preparing and reviewing Manufacturers Data Reports (MDRs) is an essential aspect of quality assurance and documentation in various industries, including manufacturing, construction, and engineering. MDRs provide comprehensive information about a product's manufacturing process, materials used, quality control measures, and compliance with relevant standards and regulations.
