Weld Bend Testing
ATS specializes in weld bend testing and analysis. Our certified welding inspectors regularly perform laboratory and field assessments both nationally and internationally. Our experts also provide weld procedure qualification and welding certification services. We utilize a comprehensive array of testing methods to evaluate a welder’s competency, including weld bend testing.
The bend test can reveal cracking, inclusions, a lack of sidewall or root fusion, excessive undercut, a lack of penetration, or internal porosity. Tearing should also not exceed a specific limit, or the sample will not pass. The specifications will differ depending on material strength and ductility.
