دانلود رایگان AWS D1.1 CODE CLINIC

The most widely used welding code in North America, and perhaps the world, is AWS D1.1/D1.1M Structural Welding Code – Steel. It is specified as the quality standard in hundreds of contract documents every year. Yet, we find that less than half of the fabricators that need to use it have a sound understanding of how to follow what the code dictates. The number one reason why fabricators turn to AWS D1.1 is to qualify welding procedures and welders. However, this code contains much more than just details on the qualification process. D1.1 can be an invaluable tool that, when applied correctly, can prove to be a tremendous cost savings tool. The purpose of the code is to assure quality, so it reasons that when applied correctly and consistently the quality of the products you manufacture will increase. As quality increases and rework decreases substantial savings can be realized.



This code provides way more detail that you ever thought was available when it comes to making welds on structural components. Yet, it is extremely hard to follow if you have never been given proper instruction on how to do so. It is definitely possible to pick up the code and teach yourself how to use prequalified welding procedures and how to qualify welding procedures by testing. However, with proper instruction you can avoid costly mistakes that are inevitable when you go it alone. Or, at the very least, you’ll be able to speed up the learning curve.

If you ever have a chance to attend a D1.1 code clinic we encourage you to do so. D1.1 can be used as a basis for developing your own quality standards. As stated above, most of us only think of the welding codes only as instructions for qualifying welders and welding procedures and acceptance criteria for the inspection of welds. Welding codes contain much more than that.
