Quality management ensures successful projects
Wemasto Oy’s primary goal is to develop its own operations continuously to ensure customer satisfaction.
Our operations are steered according to the SFS-EN ISO 9001:2015 quality management system. We develop our production methods and use the optimal equipment in order to be able to meet ever-stricter quality requirements and fast delivery times. Wemasto Oy’s welding quality system has been certified by Inspect Sertifiointi Oy in accordance with the requirements of SFS-EN ISO 3834-2.
Trained and experienced staff
The expertise and strong professional competence of Wemasto Oy’s staff stem from extensive experience in mechanical engineering and installation work, a comprehensive background in welding, overall commitment and continuous training.
As such, our staff include experts with IWE, IWT, IWS, IWI-C and Lead Auditor qualifications.
Personal and methodological qualifications for permanent joints are ensured in accordance with the harmonised standards SFS-EN ISO 9606-1, SFS-EN ISO 9606-4 and SFS-EN ISO 15614-1 by an authorised third party.
With regard to the design, production and conformity assessment of new pressure equipment and device assemblies, we apply the Government Decree on Pressure Equipment (1548/2016), i.e. the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED, 2014/68/EU).
As regards installations, repairs and modifications of pressure equipment, we apply the procedures laid down in Section 76 of the Pressure Equipment Act (1144/2016) and Section 17 of the Government Decree on Pressure Equipment Safety (1549/2016), while ensuring adherence to the essential safety requirements of the Pressure Equipment Directive.
Welding procedure qualifications (WPQR) and specifications (WPS)
Wemasto Oy’s quality system includes welding procedure specifications (WPS) and welding procedure qualification records (WPQR) for various materials, such as P235GH, P355N, 16Mo3, 10CrMo9-10, 316L, 321, DUPLEX, Alloy 20, 625, 825, 800 and so on.
We are constantly updating our methods for new processes and materials according to our customers’ needs.
Wemasto Oy’s testing for the approval of welding methods is more extensive than required by the procedural test standard ISO 15614-1 (in its minimum requirements).
- We are aware that special use, materials or manufacturing conditions may require more comprehensive testing in the context of product standards (or the customer’s/manufacturer’s instructions) to yield the necessary information.
- We also ensure that, based on method approval, weld joints prepared according to welding procedures compliant with the SFS-EN ISO 15609-1 standard meet the requirements placed on them.
