Normally investments are made on what concerns the welding operation itself, unfortunately without taking account of any prior operations. But, this is a field where investment can be a source of substantial savings. Even now, certain preparatory operations for welding are done with a grinding wheel or other equally unsuitable tools. Poor preparation will affect the end quality of the weld and lead to rejects, breakage or even leaks in use if defects are not detected in time.



Good preparation for welding is even more important when mechanically welded structures are subject to heavy loads when in use (pressure, heat, mechanical stress, etc.). For example, this is the case in nuclear power or oil and gas industries, two domains where welding needs to be perfect. Welding preparation equipment that is available on the market can meet practically all users’ requirements, in terms of speed, quality or even size. It also gives companies the possibility of making both rapid and substantial savings.
