Valence developed a library of welding requirements

Our Certified Weld Inspector has created a library of all of our welding procedure specifications. Using our programmable welding equipment, the operations manager can program the welding requirement for the project to reduce lead time and variations between units.

Our people are better.

All welders are required to be certified by our AWS Certified Weld Inspector

 

Our AWS Certified Weld Inspector has developed & fine-tuned for our specialty   a Valence documented testing process, one step further beyond the AWS requirements.

 

Each welder is trained and tested on the process within 90 days of hire. It includes gas shieldin, and appearance of the welding process.

 

We invest.

We've invested in the latest technology of welding and calibration equipment to reduce stop before they happen.
