Our patent-pending EWI WeldPredictor® is an easy-to-use online software tool that simulates arc welding procedures. Users can access it from any Internet connection to quickly explore a wide range of “what-if” scenarios.

With each calculation, you get a virtual prediction of the resulting microstructure, thermal profiles, residual stress, and distortion for plate and pipe welding – all without performing extensive designs of experiment.

The latest version of EWI WeldPredictor allows for more weld joint configurations, dissimilar materials combinations, user-defined weld bead shape, and the abilities to apply thermal-mechanical conditions and predict specific time-temperature history.

Product Benefits

  • Affordable, Attainable Simulation: Because it’s an online service, EWI WeldPredictor doesn’t require the large upfront investment in staff, technology, equipment, and infrastructure typically associated with numerical simulation.
  • Fewer Experimental Trials: Experimental welding procedure trials can be cost prohibitive due to the myriad joint geometries, process parameters, and material combinations. EWI WeldPredictor can reduce the number of physical welding trials required, saving you time, effort, and money.
  • Reduced Prototype Costs: Through efficiencies gained during weld design, experimental trials, and a low upfront investment in the technology, EWI WeldPredictor can greatly reduce your prototype costs, minimize the risks normally associated with experimental welding procedure trials, and speed your time to market.
