For all jobs, big and small, we apply the same procedure. We have divided this procedure into five different stages, to make it transparent for ourselves and for our clients. This allows us maintain control at all times, while guaranteeing the quality of our products.
Stage 1: Sales and production planning
Once we receive an order, we sit down around the table together. We decide on the approach in mutual consultation. In selecting the work process, we also factor in standards and tolerances, client needs and requirements, and the requirements of the notified bodies. We compile all specifications and decide on the best method of execution. This enables us to provide optimal service to our clients and to deliver products of the highest quality.
Stage 2: Work planning and purchasing
In this stage, we receive the drawings from the client, or sit down at the drawing board ourselves. Following a review, the drawings are released for production. Next, we place the required orders. This process includes a large amount of consultation and discussion. Having everyone at the same location allows efficient collaboration. We go through the entire package and highlight the bending work. We enter the correct coordinates into the T-project system and draw up the cutting, fitting, T-drill and materials lists. If the welding work requires an NDE (non-destructive examination), we also prepare a list of weld numbers.
Stage 3: Pre-processing and machining
The Pre-processing and Machining department carries out the cutting and bending work and uses the T-Drill. It also turns and/or mills the shafts, bushings and rings. If the iron is rough, we process it into a nice flange.
Stage 4: Fitting and welding
The pipe fitters and welders get to work, an also prepare a WPS (Welding Procedure Specification). The cut and bent tubes are assembled (fitted) with fittings. Now the pipe section is ready for the welder. This process also includes the necessary interim inspections.
The completion stage includes the final inspection. We check aspects such as the pipe dimensions. For this, we use both a drawing and the applicable standards. If everything checks out, we stamp and sign the drawing. Next comes the weld inspection. We also sign off on this. That way, we always have a record of the inspections completed. And now, it’s finally time for the last step – delivering the product to a satisfied client.
