Welding & Materials
AFRY's welding engineers ensures integrity and safety for your system
Welding and Materials are important parts of Quality Engineering
Welding, the main joining method on most of the components in industry-, process- and power plants, is a critical link in the system. Material and structure is affected in various ways by the welding process. Verifying the correct properties of the welds is therefore of high importance for the systems integrity and safety, and requirements of welding quality is often a mandatory part in many product regulations.
Our welding competence is supplemented by material specialists with wide knowledge in conventional- and advanced metallic materials for various types of applications in steel construction-, pressure- and process equipment. For example materials with special properties such as: high strength, elevated temperatures, corrosion resistance, materials for gas- and jet turbines.
Failure analysis with metallographic evaluation and material classification to identify possible material defects, material properties, welding related defects, corrosion and fractures and find the possible root cause of failures and problems.
Let us help you with an overall solution to ensure integrity and safety for your system or contact us with your specific question.
