ReCoila Reels , a leading Australian manufacturer supplying heavy duty hose and cable reels to many industries is now standardising the level of welding on its manufactured technologies.
The Sydney-based reels specialist now requires all welders working in its production plant to be trained and accredited to the skills set demanded by Australian Standard AS1554.
AS1554 is a certification that allows welders to perform down hand, vertical up and overhead continuous fillet and butt welds so the end user of its cable and hose reels recognises the product is made to an identifiable criteria and set manufacturing requirements.
ReCoila Managing Director, Mr Michael Pawson explains the enhanced internal standards now properly reflect the direction taken by the company and the reputation it has gained across most industries.
According to Mr Pawson, both their off-the-shelf technologies as well as customised solutions are often deployed in applications where breakdowns are not acceptable. ReCoila supplies their hose reels to diverse industrial sectors including defence, oil and gas, shipbuilding and marine, heavy engineering, emergency services, food production, mining and agriculture among others.
Given the many welded parts in a hose reel or cord reel used in heavy industry, the quality of ReCoila’s welding is tested each day.
Though ReCoila has always ensured high quality welding in their products, the welding done now on a ReCoila technology will be to AS1554 standards.
By ensuring their welders are trained to the AS1554 Standard, ReCoila is sending a strong message to industry that quality is repeated in each and every weld on every single technology that leaves their production plant.
