Why ASME Certification Yields Higher Quality Fabrication

Why ASME Certification Yields Higher Quality Fabrication

For more than 130 years, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) has been making the industry safer by reducing the number of accidents in industrial settings. To accomplish this task, ASME established codes and standards in an environment of collaboration. The foundation of knowledge ASME established in 1880 has made it a highly respected global organization for mechanical engineers around the world. ASME certification ensures that a facility meets certain criteria which has been carefully developed and agreed upon within ASME.

Benefits of ASME Certification in the Fabrication Industry

In the industrial fabrication industry, ASME certification offers many key benefits. An untrained or under-trained engineer or industrial worker could damage equipment that costs thousands of dollars. Pipe fabrication and pressure vessels often contain volatile and corrosive substances which can be hazardous and dangerous to personnel. A piping failure could be catastrophic. ASME-certified facilities reduce these risks by focusing on the following:

  • Quality Standards – Not only do the engineers need training, but industrial facilities need to meet quality standards for safety and consistency. ASME certification is a documentation that site audits have been performed and adherence to quality is maintained over time.
  • Safety Standards – Different states and countries have safety regulations and requirements. ASME ensures that no matter where the facility operates, it meets the highest safety standards in the industry.
  • Continuing Quality – ASME isn’t simply dedicated to providing safety as it meets the needs of today’s manufacturers, but it looks forward and provides continuing education for facilities as part of its ongoing commitment to safety and quality standards.

Having an ASME certification is just one part of maintaining and evaluating the safety of an industrial services provider. Keeping an ASME certification active requires a great deal of time and effort, which establishes the credibility of a company’s commitment to quality and safety. The ASME certification is thus a significant indicator of the reputation of an organization that stands behind its services.

ASME certification brings a peace of mind that all precautions will be taken to ensure safety while maintaining quality and productivity. ASME is the industry standard, and it has been for more than 100 years.

Choosing a Fabrication Company

ASME offers objective measurable markers of quality which are only obtained by the most diligent organizations. Selecting a company with ASME certification is one way to ensure the success of a project because of the high quality and safety standards associated with ASME certification. When comparing companies, always look for their certifications.
