SWPS use

I am a certified welding inspector and I purchased (Leased) several SWPS's from AWS. Can I legally use these SWPS's when conducting a welder performance qualification test at a clients manufacturing facility?



RE: SWPS use

To be safe, I would request the client to purchase the SWPS. That way, they are taking ownership of the SWPS and qualifying their welders to it.

RE: SWPS use

That would be the safe play...thanks.


RE: SWPS use

First one must know what welding standard is imposed.

Generally, I qualify the welder and let the contractor certify the welder.

Best regards - Al
