The most time consuming part of any plate or pipe weld testing
project is the saw cutting of the coupon prior to machining. Our machine shop has eight band saws with the ability to section all sizes of weld coupons. We have sectioned a 28” diameter, 3” thick wall, type 304 stainless steel piping coupon for a nuclear application. Once sectioned, we have three CNC turning centers, three CNC milling centers and three 3-axis surface grinders to machine bend tests, Tensile tests
or Charpy Impact tests.
Having the multiple pieces of machining equipment insures rapid test turn-around in critical situations. It also prevents our other routine laboratory operations from being affected by Rush testing orders.
The involvement of outside agencies from clients that require supervision or inspection of weld testing
is what also sets us apart from other laboratories. When a weld test requires outside inspection, the testing process is much more critical, involving extremely tight scheduling and attention to details. It is this type of critical testing where our services are recognized as superior to other metal testing laboratories.
Having a full second shift for our machine shop and mechanical testing lab
allows us to complete testing in less than half the time of other laboratories. Many inspectors now recommend MSi
to their parent agencies because we are known to be faster and more knowledgeable than our competition.
Missing a deadline due to testing delay can cost more than money. MSi
is the choice for on-time testing. When testing welds
for the state bridge agency in New York, our laboratory was “requested” to perform all of their welding test procedures.
