The new software is called Welding Qualifier. This reflects the fact that it covers both welding procedure qualification and welder qualification in one application, although you’ll be able to buy just the welder qualification module or the welding procedure module separately. The new name also fits in with the Welding Coordinator name and Welding Qualifier works with Welding Coordinator in a similar way to Weldspec and Welderqual.
Here’s some of what you can look forward to in Welding Qualifier :
- A brand new look and feel.
- A new as-run table in a PQR to replace the PQRD form.
- A new welder function where expirations and updating can be managed seamlessly.
- An off-line mode, so you can create documents away from the central database and synchronise later.
- New print preview and print functions, so you can scale the documents, print on different paper, email documents, etc.
- Much more detailed user access permissions.
- Context-sensitive help on the procedure forms.
We’ll be posting more detailed information on Welding Qualifier soon, and these blog posts will be appearing regularly to keep you informed. Different members of the team will be presenting the blog posts and introducing themselves as we go.
My name is Andy Brightmore and my background is engineering and welding. Together with Nick Mossman we look after the welding engineering side of the software, including code rules, training and support. I’m based in the Cambridge office, although I’ve spent a lot of time in Houston, TX over the last 10 years, and I’ve been working with the software since 1985.
In the meantime, if you have any questions, or if you want to see the software in action, please let us know.
