✔ Covers over 80 % of applications based on EN ISO 15612 and EN ISO 15610
✔ Both solutions, consumables and equipment, are very easy to use
✔ SAF-FRO unique solution: the WPS software generator
Drawing up WPS: use SAF-FRO solutions
Because drawing up a WPS needs special competences, time and money, SAF-FRO has done a WPS package (based on EN ISO 15612) and a tested consumable WPS generator software (based on EN ISO 15610).
WPS: In order to be certified, a producer must have a Welding Procedure Specification (WPS) in which all the welding steps of an assembly is listed (welding parameters, passes, gas, consumable…). A WPS is done in the field of application of a WPQR.
A standard WPS is only valid for The EXC 1 and 2 (Cf. Table N° 12 of the EN-1090-2 Standard). For EXC 3 and 4 the manufacturer has to have a personal WPQR.
WPQR: Welding Procedure Qualification Record, is a qualified welding procedure. The qualification is done by a notified body (TÜV, BV, IS…).
Each WPQR has a field of application, which allows the user to change the thickness, the based material etc.. To have a standard WPS. The field of application is defined in the standard (EN 15614-1:2009).
