L&N Scotland, a supplier of subsea manufacturing and engineering services, has successfully achieved a 98% weld pass rate following a 12 month strategic quality review.
The company has been assessing its existing engineering procedures, operations and associated documentation against current quality policies and objectives.
Using in-house engineers, L&N Scotland has developed project specific procedures and processes for weld overlay, butt welds and orbital autogenous welds to ensure that customer applications, stringent welding requirements and client specifications are achieved.
The company conducts weld monitoring and weld failure analysis, using results and feedback to directly influence the development of weld quality inspection processes and training given to welding personnel.
Its extensive investigations, coupled with a quality management system that is tailored to suit welding operations, has given L&N Scotland a robust means of monitoring quality levels and delivery performance. This has, in turn, allowed L&N Scotland to identify and resolve weld failures and achieve a 98% weld pass rate.
L&N Scotland’s commitment to weld quality has been further demonstrated through their recent accreditation of ISO: 3834-2 comprehensive quality standard.
Craig Finnie, L&N Scotland’s Managing Director, commented: “Taking additional measures to ensure the highest standards of quality is imperative to our company development, and this is acknowledged as we continue to achieve impressively high weld pass rates and sought-after accreditations. These accolades demonstrate the stringent quality levels we adhere to on all projects, and the importance placed on satisfying regulatory and industry quality related requirements.
