Weld estimating

Who makes the best welding estimating software or book for pipe and structural welding in powerplant, especially nuclear, environments.

RE: Weld estimating

Chapter 12 "Economics of Welding and Cutting" from the AWS Welding Handbook Vol. 1 Ninth Edition is probably one of the best references available on the subject.


RE: Weld estimating

Check out this one . http://www.mruczekweldingengineering.citymax.com/page/page/2953669.htm

I have a very basic prograam for comparing process costs side by side and estimating weld joint volumes at http://www.weldinginspectionsvcs.com/weldassist_version_2.htm  

There are some links to some welding related software companies at http://www.weldinginspectionsvcs.com/otherPeoplesWeldingSoftware.htm . You may also be able to contact on of them and see if they have anything in the works.

Hope this helps
