Welding is a highly specialized discipline that requires expertise, skill, and training. While it is an integral part of many construction and fabrication processes, weld errors can cause severe damage to materials, resulting in loss of strength and durability, or even structural failures. Our weld testing services help ensure your products and processes are fit for purpose.

Element combines non-destructive testing, destructive testing, procedure qualifications, and safety reviews to ensure that your welds and welding processes are safe, efficient, and reliable. 

Our team of experts includes Certified Welding Inspectors (CWI), Certified Welding Engineers (CWEng), and industry-dedicated technical staff to assist with projects across sectors and applications.

Element’s weld test methods

We leverage our global platform of laboratories to help review your current processes, protocols, and safety systems to provide feedback on what is working well, and how to make improvements for a more efficient and accurate program.

In addition to consulting on procedures and designing test protocols, Element provides both destructive and non-destructive weld testing. For more information about our weld testing methods, contact an expert today.
