TJ Morgan (www.tjmorgan.co.uk),
based in Cardiff, South Wales, is a UK leader in machining and fabricating plastic
materials. Quality assurance and a high standard of service are key to their success
and they recognise that to maintain standards, welders need the appropriate training.
As such they asked TWI to deliver 3 days of training in hot gas welding and extrusion welding. The welders’ training led to their
certification in EN13067 which is the European standard approval testing of plastic
welders. Not only is this proof of competency, but it means that welders are compliant
on contracts where a qualification is stipulated, enabling TJ Morgan to develop
Hot gas and extrusion welding training covers an introduction to common thermoplastics
(PVC, PP, PE, PVDF); common processing techniques; weld symbols; joint preparation
including hand tools; defects and how to avoid them; process control; inspection
and testing; health and safety; introduction to CSWIP certification; practical hot
gas welding and extrusion welding.
