Description

Orbital welding is a specialized area of welding whereby the arc is rotated mechanically through 360° (180 degrees in double up welding) around a static workpiece, an object such as a pipe, in a continuous process. The process was developed to address the issue of operator error in gas tungsten arc welding processes (GTAW), to support uniform welding around a pipe that would be significantly more difficult using a manual welding process, and to ensure high quality repeatable welds that would meet more stringent weld criteria set by ASME. In orbital welding, computer-controlled process runs with little intervention from the operator. Upon successful completion of the 40 hour class, certification of the UA18a is “possible”.

Description

In today’s competitive environment, all industrial/ commercial Projects have to consider the critical issue of rigging as
a key factor in the continued productivity of their builds. Rigging, in particular, is a major
focus for oil refineries, manufacturing plants, paper mills, chemical plants,Hi-rises,Data Centers and Cristal systems facilities. The United Association (UA) has addressed industry’s needs by developing an intensive course of study
that includes classroom and hands-on instruction using the latest rigging equipment and materials. The
UA Industrial Rigging Certification Program has been designed to ensure that UA members are able to
take on any rigging task they may encounter.
The high standards of the UA Industrial Rigging Certification Program are uniform throughout the United
States and Canada. The UA Industrial Rigging Certification Program provides an assurance to industry that UA members have the necessary skills not only to do the job right but also to do the job right
the first time! It is our goal at UA LU421 to provide highly trained UA craftsmen with detailed knowledge and experience that will improve their job performance.
