Construction welding – welding services in Poland
The welding process, i.a. construction welding or frame welding, is our core competency, carried out by either welding robots or permanently employed qualified welders. This process in our company in Poland is thoroughly controlled by a group of International Welding Engineers (IWE). In order to ensure that the welded products can be utilised according to their intended use, it is necessary to provide supervision starting from the designing stage, through selection of basic materials and additives, manufacturing process and subsequent control.
PN EN 15085 – Railway applications – railway vehicles and components
In order to be able to confirm compliance with the requirements valid for welding processes in railway applications we have implemented and certified quality assurance system consistent with PN EN 15085 standard.
Due to its specific features, welding process requires carrying out a series of actions regarding the process itself, material management, supervision of the equipment as well as inspections and tests performed before, during and after welding.
Meeting the standard requirements enables to confirm conformity of welding new components at CL1 class level in our company.
We are able to make such components for the railways industry as:
– supporting frames for internal parts (electrical systems, air conditioning, reservoirs);
– driver’s cab equipment;
– equipment boxes;
– stairs, handrails;
– frames of seats, windows;
– and many others…
PN EN 1090-2 –Production of steel structures
Market demands forced the increase in requirements for manufacturers of welded structures. Meeting the specifications contained in the PN-EN 1090 standards makes it possible to confirm that the steel constructions and frame welding offered to the clients are produced under conditions being supervised by qualified and authorised personnel. Thus, their quality is appropriate. In order to ensure fulfilment of all the requirements enabling to make steel structures for construction industry we have implemented and certified the quality assurance system consistent with the PN EN 1090-2 standard, therefore we are able to make structures in EXC3 class. Base Group is located in Poland. We can deliver metal constructions to clients located in Northern and Western Europe as well as in Poland.
PN EN 1090-3 –Production of aluminum structures
We have implemented and certified quality assurance system consistent with PN EN 1090-3 standard. The audit confirmed that Base Group is able to maintain the standard of construction of aluminum, aluminum alloys and aluminium frame welding. Base Group has the necessary qualifications and appropriate measures to ensure the execution of the construction according to EN 1090-3 EXC3 class. We are able to supply our constructions from Poland to customers from all over Europe.
Construction welding – personnel
The company employs highly qualified and experienced staff of welders and operators as far as methods: 131, 135, 136 (MIG / MAG) and 141 (TIG) in material groups corresponding to the Welding Performance Qualification Records (WPQR) held by Base Group are concerned.
The team of welders in Poland has appropriate qualifications specified in the following standards:
-PN-EN ISO 9606-1,
-PN-EN ISO 9606-2,
-PN-EN ISO 14732.
Construction welding – equipment
When carrying our welding operations we use modern equipment provided by such renowned manufacturers as Fronius (CMT Trans Puls, TPSi, Magic Wave) Kemppi (FastMig Pulse, Kempact Pulse, Kempoweld, MasterTig), Esab(LAW), as well as modern welding robots made by Panasonic. They allow us to fully control the process, thus ensuring the highest quality of joints.
Construction welding – Methods
-MIG (131) – We offer Metal Inert Gas Welding (Ar, He, Ar + He) according to valid standards.
-MAG (135) – We provide services related to Metal Active Gas welding (CO2, CO2 + Ar, O2 + Ar),
-FCAW (136) – We also perform Flux-Cored Arc Welding with active gas shield.
-TIG (141) – Moreover, we provide services related to Tungsten Inert Gas welding.
