Streamlined welding production: Outotec Turula Oy produces equipment for metallurgic processes in harsh conditions. With Kemppi ARC System 3, Outotec was able to elevate its welding management practices and thus ensure its competitiveness as a reliable partner with high quality products.

Tärkein haaste

With 70 MIG/MAG, TIG and MMA welding machines and 60 full-time welders, Outotec Turula was in need of a solution that would aid in managing a large staff, monitoring welding quality and improving productivity across the entire welding production. Working with demanding materials made it critical to stay within the WPS limits, and competitiveness was directly derived from consistency in meeting quality requirements. In addition, production peak seasons required hiring extra hands, which made the management of welding quality and welder qualifications seem like an impossible task without proper system on place.

Quality is critical for our customers given that they often employ our products in very harsh environments, where a defect can have very costly consequences. Thus, our ability to prove quality in accordance with EN ISO 3834 is a clear competitive advantage.

Kempin ratkaisu

Outotec has developed its partnership with Kemppi by deploying different modules of Kemppi ARC System 3 in phases. In 2012, Kemppi provided the Turula workshop with ARC Quality (now available as Controller) for a concrete way to verify welding quality. With increasing demands on quality assurance from customers worldwide, ARC Quality’s ability to produce qualitative data and reports on welding quality was perceived as a clear competitive advantage. In addition, Outotec was now able to easily demonstrate welding production compliance with the requirements of EN ISO 3834-2 quality standard in regular auditing procedures.

In 2014, Outotec Turula advanced from ARC Quality to the complete Kemppi ARC System 3 (now WeldEye) solution, which was covered all aspects of the workshop’s operations with ARC Coordinator and ARC Production Management modules (now available as Manager). Not only was it now possible to monitor and verify top level welding quality, but to also make WPS and welder qualifications management more efficient, and have the complete project documentation ready in just a few minutes.

With positive experiences and proven benefits of use, Outotec is considering to extend Kemppi ARC System 3 (now WeldEye) to its other production facilities and subcontractors. As a modern, cloud-based solution, Kemppi ARC System 3 is a perfect fit for a globally operating company such as Outotec with the need for a multisite welding management solution.
