Checks the code for you... consistently ... accurately

WeldOffice® code checking makes sure your WPS and PQR complies with ASME IX, AWS D1.1, or EN 288.  Additionally, by supplying information straight out of the code, WeldOffice® keeps you from having to search through the code for requirements, interpret the code and risk making a mistake.

Generates WPS automatically

WeldOffice® uses a code-intelligent weld test data collection sheet (PQRD) to provide you with directions and to allow you to record the exact parameters used, pass by pass, during the procedure qualification test.  WeldOffice® can then write the procedure qualification record (PQR) for you, and can also generate a welding procedure directly from one PQR or from multiple PQRs by combining processes. The use of the PQRD is entirely optional, however this invaluable tool will keep track of the entire qualification history, including material traceability.

Minimizes Typing

WeldOffice® reduces the amount of typing to an absolute minimum. You select data from a list instead of having to retype the same information. You can customize most drop down menus up front or on-the-fly while filling out the forms.  You can store and reuse any custom notes without retyping with a single click.

Universal Forms 

WeldOffice® satisfies the needs of organizations working with multiple codes and standards. In the real world, piping and other pressure retaining components are supported by structures that have different design requirements as well as different qualification requirements. With the universal WeldOffice® forms, there is no need to keep separate formats for ASME, AWS or EN documents.

Dynamic Forms Layout ...

WeldOffice® WPS and PQR contains all ASME Section IX, AWS D1.1 as well as EN288 variables and test requirements.  Based on the code selection folowed by process selection, only the applicable items are displayed dynamically on the screen and printed on the forms.

Up to 3 Welding Processes per WPS

WeldOffice® automatically creates GTAW welding procedures,
SMAW welding procedures, GMAW welding procedures,
FCAW welding procedures, PAW welding procedures,
SAW welding procedures, EGW welding procedures,
ESW welding procedures, OFW welding procedures,
FLSP welding procedures PSP welding procedures, and
welding procedures which combine welding processes, up to three (3) per WPS document.

Welding Procedure Weld Types

Groove/Fillet welding procedures, stud welding procedures, corrosion resistant overlay (CRO) welding procedures, hardfacing overlay (HFO) welding procedures.

Filler metals and Base metals

The fully searchable databases for filler metals and base metals have over 4,000 code classified materials. With the powerful searching, sorting, and filter functions designed in our databases, finding the information you need is fast and easy even if you have only minimal information about the materials you are using. Once the welding electrode, welding rod, welding wire or base metal is found, WeldOffice® will put all of the information straight onto the forms such as:

  • P-numbers
  • Group numbers
  • F-numbers
  • A-numbers
  • ISO 15608 Group Numbers
Pipe Schedules

Nominal pipe size, pipe schedule, diameters and wall thickness are automatically selected from the applicable tables with a single mouse click.

Joint Details

WeldOffice® has a database of standard pre-drawn joint sketches for you to select and edit to your requirements rather than draw your own. Alternatively, you can draw or import your own pictures and add them to the database for later use. For all of your drawing and editing needs, WeldOffice® will integrate any OLE-compliant graphics/drawing program of your choice so that you won't have to learn how to use a different program.

Direct Turbo-IX™ and Turbo-INT™ Access

WeldOffice® allows you to access the actual ASME Section IX code requirements, interpretations, base metal and weld filler metal tables and all other Turbo-IX™ and Turbo-INT™ Module D features with a single click of the mouse button. Turbo-IX™ and/or Turbo-INT™ Module D must be installed in the system for these features to be active.

Why would I want Turbo-IX™?

Because you need to justify why you did what you or what WeldOffice® did. Turbo-IX™ identifies and displays the actual code requirements and provides code justifications. WeldOffice® only applies the rules, and it does so transparently to the user. The two programs complement each other and provide you with unprecedented and unmatchable computing power.

Flexibility

WeldOffice® is designed to meet a wide variety of needs. Most users will find WeldOffice® has more built-in features and functionality than they can possibly need. However, if you require additional power, features and functionality, the system is flexible enough to allow for customization to suit your exact needs. The system can be customized to include your own document layouts, links to other databases, 'intelligent' data generation routines, etc…
