WELDING EQUIPMENT DEMONSTRATIONS: A potential customer can visit PWS and acquire hands-on use of the available equipment in our weld lab. At that time we can discuss applications, tooling and weld parts for evaluation. Usually there is not a charge for a customer to visit. With equipment demonstration the customer can find out the pros and cons of his particular welding application.
FREE OR LOW COST WELD DEVELOPMENT: Weld development is usually a free service as long as the application can easily be set up with our existing equipment, fixture and tooling. For more elaborate weld tests that would take more than a day or would require special tooling we would quote a minimum fee to run a process welding program. The program would include setting up equipment, building tooling and weld reports.
WELD TRAINING: We can train your welding staff with use of the welding processes, equipment care, preventive maintenance, safety procedures, electrical trouble shooting and weld development.
