With the transition from EN 287-1 to 9606-1:2013 much will change in the field of welding

ISO 9606-1:2013, is the successor of the EN 287-1. This replacement brings a lot of uncertainties, especially in the transition phase,. The reason that this replacement is so important lies in the fact that, at the start-up, the authorities explicitly had a lot of attention for the requirements of other competing standards, like ASME and AWS.

THE BIGGEST CHANGES IN A NUTSHELL:
  • Parent metal is no longer an essential variable. The welder can choose his own consumable, this tests his ability to use relevant consumables
  • The introduction of FM groups(filler material)
  • New welding details gb, fb en ci
  • Welding positions instead of test positions for the area of ​​validity
  • Rules for renewal have become wider and material transfer has become an important variable
  • Introducing our in-house welding coordinator
