Welding Procedures are a critical part of the welding quality puzzle. A Welding Procedure Specification (WPS) is a proven way of welding components. It demonstrates to a client that you have control over your welding process specifications and operations.
An impractical Welding Procedure can considerably hinder your project. The purpose of a Welding Procedure is that you have a practical work instruction for welders to follow that ensures you produce a weld that has the required mechanical properties and survives its intended service. This requires a well developed WPS by a body such as Technoweld, who have technicians with extensive experience in welding.
What Is A Welding Procedure Specification?
Welding Procedure Specifications (WPS) are written instructions for welders on the shop floor to follow. This ensures sound welds are produced efficiently and consistently to the required standards.
Examples of (WPS) Welding Procedure Specifications are:
- Structural Welding Procedure to AS/NZS 1554
- Pipe welding to AS4041 or ASME B31.3
- AWS welding specifications to D1.1
- ISO15614 Welding Procedures
- GMAW / MIG welding specification

Technoweld are industry specialists. We research, develop, witness, run and document welding procedures specific to your project needs.
We can supply within hours of the first discussion or we can develop detailed and extensive welding procedures to cover a range of welding processes for most materials. These materials include low carbon steel, aluminium, stainless steel, duplex, and super-duplex.
Technoweld have can supply Welding Procedure Specifications for most thicknesses, positions, and welding consumables. All our Welding Procedure Specifications have been witnessed, developed, reviewed, and signed by a qualified and competent Senior Welding Inspector / Welding Engineer.
For your peace of mind, we keep a record of all critical data including test reports, material certificates and procedure qualification records on our secure servers. All Technoweld Welding Procedure Specifications can be resupplied when required.
In most cases, you will receive the required specifications in less than 24 hours.
I have used Graham and his Technoweld team several times. Graham has a huge in-depth knowledge of welding to Australian and international standards. He is my go-to man for weld procedures and inspections. Always a pleasure to work with.
