Welder & Cutting Equipment Repairs, Welder Servicing & Calibration

Our welding machine and cutting equipment repairs, service and calibration department, is the corner-stone of our business. We established our service department in 1979, and have long believed that to offer such a repair facility is the minimum requirement demanded by our end-users when purchasing welding and cutting equipment.

We employ highly qualified service engineers who have many years of combined experience in the welding and cutting industry. Our large dedicated, fully equipped machine diagnostic, repair and testing department coupled with thousands of pounds of spare parts, available in stock, we believe Philpott & Cowlin can offer an after-sales support facility to our customers which is second to none in the area.

On-site visits can be arranged for equipment repairs, annual servicing, or calibration/validation of welding machines to BS EN Standards with full certification and service reports provided. If spare parts are needed to be ordered, a suitable replacement machine can be provided at a competitive rate. From our extensive range of hire equipment we can offer the largest selection of high quality Inverter welding and cutting machines in the area.

Integrity is first and foremost when dealing with the pitfalls of all repair work, especially in relation to breakdowns on modern sophisticated Inverter welding machines supplied by equipment distributors who outsource their repair work and are unable to support their customers themselves ( even though they may claim they do ). Although our after-sales service and repair activities are primarily to support the equipment we sell, we would be pleased to offer assistance to any companies who have been let down in some way with regard to problems experienced in relation to repairs of makes and models of Inverter welding machines we are not direct agents for.

Welding Machine Servicing

Scheduled annual welding equipment servicing and testing for operator safety on an annual basis, is a legal obligation with regard to Health and Safety accident prevention ref The Electricity at Work Act 1989, and The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998. It is also usually a standard requirement for Insurance company and ISO Management Systems compliance, and is always recommended by the equipment manufacturers to assist with obtaining efficient operation of the equipment, as well as pro-longing the lifetime of the equipment.

Our engineers work to a set check list when servicing equipment, which includes earth continuity and Insulation testing for electrical safety with individual machine Certification and Service Reports forwarded to file in your records, while the equipment is also labeled and dated.

We have been carrying out on-site equipment calibration with full certification on welding machines to National and Aerospace Standards since the early 1980’s. The latest standard is BS EN 50504: 2008 for commercial companies, however we can also calibrate to RRCCP 10.1.2 for aerospace companies. Please contact our sales desk for more information.
