The Sawyer Fabrication Team Includes a Level II ASNT Certified Quality Control Inspector

The outcome of any fabrication project ultimately hinges upon the skills and capabilities of the individual welders performing the job. However, precision quality products require precision fabrication results with utter consistency.

In the world of close-tolerance custom manufacturing, there’s no room for error in craftsmanship or a lapse in welding skill.

That’s why Sawyer Fabrication employs an expert weld inspector certified Level II by the American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) for:

  • MT – Magnetic Particle Testing
  • RT – Reading Radiographic Testing
  • PT – Liquid Penetrant Testing

Certified weld inspectors (commonly abbreviated as CWI) undergo extensive specialized training programs that are essentially universities for the art of welding. They become masters of not only determining the strength, integrity, and quality of a weld but also of designing and recommending optimized weld solutions for each unique fabrication project.

At Sawyer Fabrication, the work of our already industry-leading team of precision welders and fabricators is elevated by our superior ASNT certified quality control solutions.

The Advantages of Partnering with a Fabrication Shop Staffed with a Certified Weld Inspector

Complete Knowledge of Industry Standard Compliance and Welding Codes

Many precision industries absolutely require certified welding inspectors to oversee the fabrication work of all products to ensure both performance and safety. This includes the oil and gas sectors, ASME boilers and pressure vessels, as well as any AWS certified weldment.

In these critical industries, the safety of workers, consumers, and the environment can literally depend on the quality of the fabrication work, which is why a certifiable welding solution is paramount.
