Whether it be submarines, warships, land vehicles or aircraft, Defence subjects its platforms to some of the harshest environmental conditions known to man. As a result, Defence naturally expects that its assets adhere to the highest standards.
If you need assistance with material welding, joining services and coatings, Technoweld is your natural partner of choice. Having spent the last decade working around the globe, Technoweld has developed an unrivalled understanding of Australian Standards, American Standards, European Standards and International Standards – vitally important when considering that many of Australia’s most significant Defence acquisitions to be made over the next decade will have been designed in either Europe, the United Kingdom and/or the United States. Technoweld not only understands how to interpret these standards (including any overlap between them), but it has the practical knowledge and experience in implementing them on the shop-floor. It is this practical understanding that ensures its clients succeed in meeting the stringent requirements expected of them.

Technoweld is also often brought by its clients as a third-party witness, and on many occasions, a testament to the company’s reputation as leader in its field, it has been requested to act as an expert witness or subject matter expert in a number of high profile court cases.
