Liebherr-Australia’s fabrication facility in Adelaide has received certification for the internationally recognised benchmark AS/NZS ISO 3834.2.

liebherr australia certificationKnown as “Quality requirements for fusion welding of metallic materials, Part 2: Comprehensive Quality Requirements,” the OEM underwent a number of initiatives to reach this level, including bolstering the skills of its team to become Visual Welding Inspectors (VWIs) and an ISO-accredited International Welding Specialist (IWS). There is also a new role of fabrication welding quality coordinator.

The certification complements the quality standard ISO 9001 and is the highest level of quality assurance in fabrication. The certification was gained through Weld Australia.

“ISO 3834.2 covers all areas of the welding and fabrication process from design through to inspection, including the technical knowledge of welding personnel, quality control, consistency of production, and compliance to design requirements,” the company said.

“While the standard at the facility was already outstanding prior to certification, the team implemented some improvements to ultimately achieve the certification requirements.”

Liebherr officials said, while the certification scope is currently limited to the manufacture of new buckets within Liebherr-Australia’s Adelaide site, there is potential to expand the scope during annual surveillance audits.
