Structural Steel Welding Specialists

There are many standards governing welding. Being an Australian based company, Edcon performs its works to relevant Australian Standards.

The Australian Standards for welding use a principle of ‘prequalification’ for personnel, materials, consumables, and procedures. Edcon Steel has prequalified welding procedures in place to cover fillet welds (up to 10mm) and complete penetration butt welds (up to 50mm). We also have the personnel to complete these procedures.

To enquire about your next welding requirements please contact us here.

The standard for most structural steel welding in Australia is AS/NZ1554.

Our work is all considered structural in nature and therefore we fall under Part 1 of AS/NZ1554. In accordance with AS/NZ1554.1:2011 ‘Structural Steel – Welding – Part 1: Welding of Steel structures.’

This standard requires:

2. All procedures to be qualified and records of the procedure qualification record (PQR) shall be available for examination. This is done at Edcon Steel with the development of PQRs and these are made available to the welder during fabrication by way of Welding Procedure Sheets (WPS).
