Mechcon Welding and Fabrication cover the hallmarks of top-quality welding management through Its WPS welding procedure specifications. A welding procedure specification, or a WPS is a formal written document describing standard welding procedures which guarantees safety and quality. Mechcon has the appropriate documents created with high-quality detail for all there Steel Fabrication as they may serve as a legal document. Mechcon Welding &Fabrication creates in-house weld procedures that cover AS 1554 and Pipe Welding AS 4041 , these standards provides a comprehensive set of guidelines that Mechcon follows at all times for the welding of structural steel, our procedures, outline the quality controlled requirements for welding structural steel components. AS 1554 is used by our engineers, welders and fabricators to ensure that welding is carried out safely efficiently and into a high standard AS 1554 requires quality control procedures to be implemented to ensure that the welding is carried out to high standard. Quality control procedures including inspection of welding joints testing of the welds and documentation of welding procedures and Welder qualifications. Quality control procedures are essential to ensure the welding is performed safely and efficiently and finish product meets the required standards. Steel Fabrication goes hand-in-hand with AS/NZS 1554 as it is an important standard that provides guidelines for welding structural steel components.
