UMF strengthens its competence with an international welding diploma
Henning Nørstebø at Uvdal Maskinfabrikk has recently trained as an International Welding Inspector
-The fact that Henning has acquired the competence as International Welding Inspector (IWI-S) ensures that we can continue to deliver products at a very high standard, says production manager at UMF, Atle Næsset.
In order for UMF to deliver products for industry, it is required that you have a certified welding coordinator in the company. The training as an International Welding Coordinator is carried out both digitally and practically at the Kiwa Institute of Technology in Stavanger.
-It is a demanding course to participate in. You need to be prepared and put in an effort to pass the training and subsequent exam, says Nørstebø.

-The course is conducted in two parts. First online with the following exam, before moving on to practical schooling with a final test in Stavanger. All this must of course be passed and there were several of this year’s participants that did not pass. Fortunately, it went well for me this time, says Henning.

Demanding requirements for quality
Production manager Atle Næsset says that their customers set extensive quality requirements for the products UMF delivers.
-Especially in the oil & gas- and aerospace industry, we meet sky-high demands as a manufacturer. Henning’s job is therefore incredibly important for us at UMF.
-His job is to implement quality control and make sure that all the documentation and procedures are carried out in the correct manner. Especially when welding new alloys and materials, Næsset concludes.
