The CSA® and AWS® Welding and Welder Software:

For your structural applications, for any of the structural welding codes (CSA W47.1/W59-13, CSA W47.2/W59.2, and AWS D1 codes, as well as AWS B2.1 for steels, aluminum or stainless steels), create welding procedure and welder performance qualification, by using industry standard CSA (WPDS) Form or AWS Forms (WPS, PQR, WPQR).

Features on the CSA and AWS Forms (WPDS, WPS, PQR, WPQR):

•  Your company name and address will be added to all document, automatically
•  Option to transfer data from WPS to PQR or vice versa, automatically
•  Option to save your weld document online (WPDS, WPS, PQR, WPQ, WPQR and Welders Management Report), plus you can always save it on your computer
•  Above features help you to manage your document faster, without entering the same data again!
•  You can choose from pre-drawn joint sketches library or upload your drawing:
•  Over 500 welding joints, with code-referenced details of joint design used
•  Plus Non code-referenced welding joints, sketches without details, that help you avoid drawing on your own!

Drop-down features that help reduce your typing for the following variables:

•  Weld types, joint types, welding position, backing options and backing types
•  Shielding gases for (FCAW, MCAW, GMAW, GTAW,...) or flux for (SAW) process
•  Welding process (es) as well as welding process type (s):
•  SMAW, FCAW, GMAW, SAW, PAW, GTAW, ESW, EGW welding process
•  Mode of metal transfers, current & polarity, tungsten type for TIG, etc.

AWS & CSA Base Metal database is sorted based on the Tables for each code:

•  AWS D1.1-Table 3.1 and Table 4.9, AWS D1.2-Table 3.2, AWS D1.3-Table 1.2, AWS D1.5-AASHTO/AWS, and AWS D1.6-Table 3.2 references, as well as ASM Metals Handbook, and ASTM Standards, AWS D17.1-Table 5.2, and AWS B2.1-Annex D.
•  In addition to the AWS materials, the CSA W59-13-Tables 11.1 and Table 12.1, and CSA W59.2-Table 5 in CSA Base Metal database
•  Each material includes: Reference to code's table, code's metal group number, material grade, specification or alloy designation, minimum specified tensile strength and yield strength, plus helpful information in regards to prequalified material, etc.
•  Color links for each metal categories (Steel, Stainless Steel, Aluminum) for quick search and addition to your Forms

AWS & CSA Filler Metal database is sorted based on both material & process:

•  Welding process (SMAW, FCAW, GMAW, MCAW, SAW, PAW, GTAW)
•  AWS Specification number, AWS Classification, and helpful information
•  CSA Specification number, CSA Classification, and helpful information
•  Color links for each filler metal groups (welding electrodes, welding rods, welding wires), as follow:

Carbon Steel

Low Alloy Steel

Stainless Steel

Aluminum and Aluminum-Base Alloys

Copper and Copper-Base Alloys

Nickel and Nickel-Base Alloys

Titanium and Titanium Alloys

Zirconium and Zirconium Alloys

Hard-Facing Weld Metal Overlay


Preheat/Interpass temperatures, Postweld Heat Treatment (PWHT):
