Skills shortage is real, but is it as big an issue as companies think?   Organisations often struggle to get additional staff, yet don’t consider ‘do I actually need them’. Most fabrication and welding shops have not refined their welding operations in years and the process is driven by tradespeople whose primary focus is not necessarily productivity and efficiency. Technoweld has extensive experience nationally and internationally. We know what works. All technical staff are welders by trade, so the practical approach ensures we bring to our clients outcomes that are proven to work. Opti ..read more

What is fatigue failure in metals, and what factors reduce the fatigue life of welded components?
Technoweld
by Kate Morton
1y ago
Fatigue life is the number of loading (stress or strain) cycles a component can withstand before failure occurs. For some metals, i.e. steels, there is a theoretical number of cycles for a given stress range. If kept below this number of cycles, there is a confidence that the component will not suffer a fatigue failure. This is known as fatigue strength or fatigue/endurance limit. SN (stress/number of cycles) curves are used to predict the fatigue strength of materials and joint types. It is reported that over 90% of mechanical failures fail by the fatigue mode. Often with very little or no wa ..read more

Ultrasonic Peening: maximising fatigue performance
Technoweld
by Graham Fry
1y ago
Fatigue is the weakening of a material caused by repeatedly applied loads. Depending on the cyclic nature of the stress, material can fail quickly or over prolonged periods. Fatigue failures have cost companies billions due to loss productivity, personal injury, machine down time and of course, bad PR for OEM’s! So for welded-steel structures subject to dynamic loading, and the engineers who design them, fatigue life is a top priority. Traditional methods such as hammer peening and burr grinding provide an increase in extending fatigue life, but welding consultanc ..read more

How a Welding Supervisor can assist your project
Technoweld
by Kate Morton
1y ago
Why do I need a Welding Supervisor? Welding Supervisors play an integral part in the hierarchy of welding projects to ensure the quality, compliance, and success of the build. Typically, they are the first port of call in the technical management of the project and the liaison between senior management, 3rd party inspectors, client’s representatives, and any other relevant parties. Their primary role is to interpret, understand and apply the technical requirements of the client’s specifications, standards and drawings. A Welding Supervisor should be considering the most appropriate welding pro ..read more

GTAW Walking the Cup Vs. Freehand Welding
Technoweld
by Kate Morton
1y ago
The Advantages and Disadvantages In the modern day many welders prefer to walk the cup over freehand as it saves them burning their hands, provides better control and a more consistent finish to the weld when the technique has been mastered, but with most things walking the cup has its advantages and disadvantages.   Walking the Cup Advantages Better control of the arc manipulation and arc length More consistent electrode angle during hot pass, filling, and capping Increased consistency with travel speed Improved weld uniformity with weld width, shape and profile   Disadvantages ..read more

Welder Qualification Tests – What’s the easiest way?
Technoweld
by Kate Morton
1y ago
WQT – what is it and why do we need it? A Welder Qualification Test (WQT) is a qualification certificate that verifies that a welder has successfully completed the verification of competence test using a specific welding process, in a particular welding position and has demonstrated the ability to produce a sound weld to a welding procedure. A welder will produce a weld on test coupons using a specified procedure. The test is witnessed to verify it is done in accordance with the standard. The test sample is then examined visually to determine compliance and then sent for additional testing bas ..read more
