If you have a question relating to the application of any welding, joining, inspection or allied process as an Industrial Member you can speak to one of our engineers 8.30am-4.30pm, Monday to Friday; or e-mail any time.

  • Our team includes metallurgists, corrosion engineers, composites and polymer specialists, structural integrity engineers (covering fracture, fatigue and asset integrity), and information scientists who can help you find any data or information you need to help you deliver your objectives. This extends to helping you understand and apply codes and standards.

Welding engineering

TWI welding engineering support covers many disciplines including codes and standards interpretation, weld design, metallurgy, fabrication and installation, automation, distortion control, quality control and repair. TWI's welding engineers have a wide knowledge of all these disciplines, with diverse experience backed up by professional qualifications, such as Certified European Welding Engineer and CSWIP Welding Inspector.

We offer practical advice on best practice in tackling fabrication and welding issues ranging from pressure vessel, boiler and heavy structural steelwork, through pipeline fabrication/installation to new build and repair for power generation, including nuclear. This is backed up by experience in dealing with welding issues with a wide range of processes and materials.
