Desco has in place an internal welder qualification program that addresses Essential Variables for welding and testing as defined in the following Welding Codes:

  • ANSI/AWS D1.1/D1.1M Structural Welding Code – Steel
  • ANSI/AWS D1.2/D1.2M Structural Welding Code – Aluminum
  • ANSI/AWS D1.6/D1.6M Structural Welding Code – Stainless Steel
  • AWS D9.1M/D9.1 Sheet Metal Welding Code

Welding Processes:

  • MIG
  • TIG
  • Laser
  • Micro

Weldable Materials:

  • Carbon Steel
  • Stainless Steel
  • 300 & 400 Series
  • 17-4
  • Tool Steels
  • Aluminum, all 60 Series

Specialty Alloy Welding:

  • Titanium
  • Stellite
  • Hastelloy
  • Inconel
  • Monel
  • Ferralium
  • Manganese
  • Bronze Alloys

Weld test results are used to establish required documentation (i.e. PQR, WPS, and WQR). All test results and independent certifications are maintained and on file.

Welder activities are recorded in order to maintain qualification to those qualified weld positions.

Our welders are capable in GMAW, GTAW and OFW (for brazing & soldering) processes.
