Learn the nature and use of a WPS along with its supporting procedure qualification record (PQR)
Welding procedure specifications (WPS) allow welders to consistently produce welds that meet desired requirements without any rework. However, the nature and use of a WPS, and its supporting procedure qualification record (PQR), are commonly misunderstood. This online course provides a comprehensive overview of these documents in an engaging and easy-to-understand multimedia format.
Topics include: the format and function of a WPS and a PQR; the different types of WPSs; essential and nonessential variables for arc welding, oxyfuel welding , resistance welding and brazing procedure specifications; the procedure qualification process; the information included on a PQR; and common nondestructive and destructive tests.
