Weld Testing & Inspection Services 

Oxarc’s Certified Welding Inspection Services

As part of our commitment, Oxarc offers Welding Inspection and Testing services. This division of Oxarc is capable of performing visual and non-destructive testing of welds along with structural steel and high-strength bolting inspections. Welder certification and training are offered at our WABO-accredited testing facility.

Ensuring Quality With Expert Welding Inspection 

Oxarc Welding Inspection and Testing is accredited through the Washington Association of Building Officials (WABO) to perform welder certification and training in the following processes: SMAW (stick), FCAW (flux core), GMAW (MIG) and GTAW (TIG).

We perform testing on plate, pipe, light gauge metals, stainless steel, aluminum, rebar and special materials on request. 

Our welding inspection services consist of three primary stages: 

  1. Prior to welding work: This stage involves basic inspection requirements such as checking whether welding symbols are clearly specified in documents and drawings, flux is appropriate and properly handled, mechanical properties and testing are identified and all roles are appropriate for the work. 
  2. During welding: Our professionals will check that the welder meets qualification requirements, has proper technique and analysis, adheres to good welding practices, displays confidence and meets essential variables during welding. 
  3. Upon completion: Once welders complete their project, our experts will analyze whether the length, location and size of the weld match the specifications or drawing, perform a hardness check and check whether temporary attachments were removed, quality and placement comply with standards, contaminations were removed and local heating bandwidth is adequate, among other things. 

Accredited by WABO: A Mark of Trust and Excellence 

Our staff consists of Certified Welding Inspectors (CWI/AWS), ASNT Level II and III technicians for Magnetic Particle (MT), Liquid Penetrant (PT), Ultrasonic (UT) and Visual (VT), testing along with certifications for ICBO and WABO.
