So we are hoping to become their go to guys for welding. Our business is still just my partner and myself, so we have low enough overhead to take on smaller jobs and still benefit from them. I personally am quite strong with TIG, which is almost exclusively what we will be doing for them. So my question is if anybody on here has ever certified to this standard or something similar. And if there are any keys to prepping for such high grade welding, especially thin aluminum.
I have a pretty good idea how we are going to approach this type of welding. We have already spoken with some industry professionals. But with the safety risk associated, and high cost of NDT.
I want to make sure that we develop a procedure that incorporates all best practices. Input or experience from any highly demanding X-rayed welding would be greatly appreciated. I ran across this site last year: I also clicked through to the “Tip Tig” site, an interesting new twist on Tig welders, this too may interest you.
I hope that this info can help lead you to where you need to get to. When a welder tells you to “stick it”, what do they really mean? Where are you located? I assume you possess a copy of AWS D Did you purchase the AWS “Guidelines for alum welding”? You say alum tig is a strong point of yours. In what alloys, and what thicknesses, and what shapes? Is you tig welder analog or digital, and is it calibrate-able? Boeing is pretty strict in that regard.
Please post some pictures of your work for evaluation. It really focuses on sound techniques and basic welding principals. I had to pass bend tests and x ray. Shovelon has some good points and questions above I did everything on a calibrated and verified dynasty lx.
Depending where you are you could take a course for was Join Date May Posts 2, And hopefully that’s your biggest hurdle. Hopefully, you can slide under your clients ins policy. It may be why the machine shop don’t weld. Wepding may be a clause in there policy not allowing it. Underwriters don’t like fire and hot things. But then again, it’s amazing how some of the most obvious and important things at big companies get overlooked.
Welding Certification – Don’t Get me Started….Don’t even Get me Started
I am interested in what members weldign say about this standard. I do occasional welding on fuselages welding both and I still need to purchase a copy of the standard. Originally Posted by Superior Welding. I too am seeking my D Ill have a look at those forums weldong bearston, thanks. I do have a copy of the standard itself, but not the guideline that you mentioned.
As for my TIG experience, I do a lot of stainless sheet, tube, and pipe now.
But have worked on a fair bit of aluminum, mostly The most demanding was at a shop I used to work at, for seats that were to go in the Stryker light armoured vehicles. We had to do a weldig test every day at the start of our shift. But It was fairly thick material, mostly. At the same shop we did a lot of aluminum electronics cabinets, boxes, etc.
I don’t have much for pictures, but I think I have a couple. I’ll post those soon to show a little bit of what I’ve done.
I’ve got a Dynasty DX, so digital. But I don’t have experience with celebrated machines. Also I should mention that most of the d177 parts I will be welding will be repair work. I would imagine if it was new manufacturing there would be more set procedures I could use.
If this goes well hopefully we could get into that in the future as well. Page 17, figure 5. Page 18 gives you the fillet configuration. You need to figure out which thickness you want to use.
Hourly Rate for Certification: American Welding Society (AWS)
Before starting you need to write a procedure for each coupon, and stick to it, page Keep the test reports for your metal and filler. Unfortunately AWS does not have a standard procedure to purchase. You will need to find an inspection facility that can handle the examinations. I have macro, tensile, penetrant, and radiograph close to me, which is invaluable. You can to the bend tests yourself if you have a competent third party verify and document.
After you compile all of the reports, you could ask the third party to verify the package as weldint. I would still pick up a copy of the welding guidelines. Good luck and let us know how it progresses.
