Welding Procedure Software
C-spec automates WPS and PQR creation in compliance with the latest ASME Section IX and AWS D1.1 code requirements.
Welding Procedure Specification (WPS) creation and management is simple, fast and accurate with automatic code checking and links to code related software modules. The latest software update applies code rules published in the 2021 Edition of ASME Section IX and the 2020 Edition of AWS D1.1.
Only C-spec's WeldOffice® offers superior up to date code compliance and code rules verification supported by active code committee members. Your welding procedure will be instantly recognized as a code compliant industry standard.
User enable/disable code checking for ASME IX, AWS D1.1 and ISO 15614 provides the flexibility of expert assisted or self-guided WPS creation.
C-spec automaticaly updates the software to reflect the latest requirements. The periodic update schedule depends on each code and standard publication date. The updates are always published before the code mandatory date goes into effect, usually 6 months folowing the publication date. The latest software update applies code rules published in the 2021 Edition of ASME Section IX and the 2020 Edition of AWS D1.1.
Universal WPS, PQR and PQR-D multi-process forms supporting multiple codes, including ASME IX, ISO 15614, AWS D1.1, D1.2, D1.3, D1.4, D1.5, D1.6, D9.1, API 1104 and other
Multiple processes (up to three) on a single document sheet. Universal WPS, PQR and PQR-D multi-process forms support SMAW, GTAW, GMAW, FCAW, SAW, PAW, ESW, EGW and OFW processes

User defined multi-level security access with secure electronic signatures.
Program uses dynamic forms for data input. Dynamic forms prevent entry of non-relevant information to minimize potential introduction of errors. These forms grow dynamically based on the information that you enter. For example, unless you select a process that uses gas, no information pertinent to gas will appear. Dynamic forms follow a natural flow of information acquisition. They are logically organized to manage complex relations and to present it in the most simplified manner.
WPS is equipped with a comprehensive database of typical joint details and weld sequence diagrams already drawn for you, including prequalified joint details library. Rather than drawing sketches manually, the Sketch Selection Manager allows several option from which to begin your drawing. This includes being able to modify a copy of a sketch from the database of templates or modify a copy of a sketch located on one of your previous records.
Selectable pipe schedules are provided for Carbon steel and alloys (ANSI-B36.10), Stainless steel (ANSI-B36.19). Tube gauge/thickness table is included. Schedules are in both US Customary and Metric units. Non standard Monster and MAV pipe test coupons are included.
Supports groove welds, fillet welds, overlays and stud welding.
Supports up to five (5) filler metal diameters per process, that's 15 diameters per page. Each electrode or filler metal size split will also split all other applicable fields (e.g. electrical characteristics and gas variables) into corresponding columns, thus allowing specific information to be entered for each filler metal size when applicable.
