ABOUT IIW-BENGALURU BRANCH
The Indian Institute of Welding - Bengaluru Branch is one of the older and most vibrant branches of IIW-India with a membership of 10 corporates and over 150 professionals. The Branch is tirelessly working towards the development of Welding technology and around Bengaluru. The branch activities include organizing training courses for Welders and welding Engineers and providing Consultancy to various industries to improve the quality of products and services.
Most international Manufacturing standards considers welding as a special and critical-to-quality process. Welding is an absolute essential process of any manufacturing activity ranging from pin to plane. The National Welding Meet-NWM2017 is being organized to focus on recent developments in welding, to discuss on opportunities for welding professionals and welders to improve their skill sets. NWM2017 is aimed at creating a common platform on which Industries & Professional alike come together to exchange ideas and knowledge for mutual benefits. It also provides an exciting opportunity for the educational and professional institutes to meet the industry. The meet will also provide for the industry to get upto date on the research and developments on Welding and related technology.
Skill Development for Make in India
India will have the largest young work force by 2020 in the world. This is coinciding with the eminent huge demand for skilled workforce in the welding sector. To capitalize this opportunity in India large number of companies are establishing their global manufacturing bases in India.
This will lead to rapid industrialization; with it will come the large gap in the demand-supply of skilled workforce in this vital sector. NWM2017 seeks to address this key issue and its associated challenges in the welding skill improvement.

Please note about the recent recent incident of radiation injury
and lesson to learn from the incident during Radiography Inspection.
- An UNTRAINED worker was engaged by a company to use Radiography Camera having 30 Ci of Ir-192 Source.
- The person was neither radiographer nor trainee, so no knowledge
of radiation safety.
- NO TLD badges / NO SURVEY METER / NO POCKET DOSIMETER was given to
- The pigtail along with the radioactive source was decoupled in the
- The worker noticed it only when he removed guide tube for storage
of the camera.
- He picked up the source by hand and
put it back to the camera.
- Photograph of his right hand is attached for your information.
LESSON TO LEARN
- Never engage unqualified workers to
handle radiation sources/devices.
- Even do not allow 'Trainee Radiographer' without supervision of
- Always after each exposure ensure that the source is inside
the camera by using a survey meter.
- Digital pocket dosimeter with beep alarm is very useful during
- Follow all radiation safety procedures during radiography.
IT CAN HAPPEN WITH ANY RADIOGRAPHER.
SO BE CAUTIOUS WHILE HANDLING RADIATION SOURCES.

The American Society for NDT - ASNT is excited to announce expansion of its computer-based
testing (CBT) internationally effective 3
January 2017. This brings ASNT’s goal of increased accessibility for exam
takers, secure paperless application and examinations full circle. It was May
2016 when ASNT first announced its chosen partner, Pearson VUE for the
administration of CBT.
Candidates will now experience streamlined scheduling by
having the option to schedule via phone or online 24/7 at a worldwide network
of Pearson VUE exam centers which also includes National Sponsoring
Organizations (NSO’s) and current Authorized Examination Centers (AEC’s) from
which to choose.
Once your application is approved, you will receive an email
when the computer-based testing scheduling system is open for you to create
your Pearson VUE account. Schedule
your computer-based examination at a Pearson VUE exam center, NSO or AEC.
The majority of NDT examinations are automatically graded and
therefore the candidate will receive their NDT examination results immediately at
the test center. Examinations with essay responses will not receive onsite
results as they require additional validation.
5)Parent material:Verifying parent material against documentation and markings.
6)Welding consumables identity:Verification of correctness of welding consumables (electrodes, filler wires, consumable inserts, gases, fluxes etc.)
7)Pre-weld inspection:Verification that dimensions, fit-up and weld preparations are in accordance with specifications.
8)Preheating:Verification that any required preheat is in accordance with the specified procedure.
9)In-process welding inspection and surveillance:Surveillance
during welding to verify compliance with specified procedures including
any preheat, interpass temperature control and post heat
10) Inspection and Test Plans:Assistance and agreement with the preparation of Inspection and Test Plans (ITP’s)
11) Post-weld heat treatment:Verification, when required that post weld heat treatment has been conducted in accordance with specification requirements.

NDT for safety - Recently Rail Accident at UP, India - A very Unfortunate accident in the history of Railways.
It is very unfortunate to see another disastrous train accident that has
taken 140+ lives in UP. There reason is not yet concluded yet. However
preliminary investigations shows there could be CRACKS ON RAIL TRACK
DUE TO EXPANSION AND CONTRACTION - a natural process that happened in
hot and extremely cold weathers. Now the question arises is are we ready
enough for high speed rail network in
India. The high speed rail network is planned to be many time speeded
that the once existing at the current tracks. Are we prepared enough for
that is the question that needs to have crystal clear answer. As I
routinely says in my technical talks we are having enough technology to
make the rail travel safe but the problem is effectiveness in
implementation of such stringent maintenance checks by the authorities.
An effective NDT program implementation could have saved these valuable
lives and financial losses. It is also funny that track safety rely on
simple visual inspection done by the track maintenance personnel who may
have a little or no knowledge of the material behaviour/crack
initiation and propagation mechanism. Railways should cope up with the
latest NDT technology procedures being adopted by various
countries/organization for rail safety by using professionally trained NDT engineers to do such critical inspections. Its is time for the review on
the maintenance check procedures that are being in place to ensure the
safety of railway passengers. Punishing the culprits after the loss of
lives can never bring the justice to the dependents of the families.
Such instances are never tolerable any more with the advancements in
Nondestructive testing -NDT. Conclusively I feel there should be
professionals to carry out visual inspection on daily basis and also
Ultrasonic Inspection -UT at specified intervals. I also feel that the
present Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi and Mr Suresh Prabhu,
Hon'ble Railway minister both looks to be very enthusiastic in
implementing such programs in the interest of India and its citizens.
Let us see how railways are transforming in becoming the part of India's
Growth story in the coming days.
