Our Design & Engineering Process always stems from an unmet customer need. Once the customer requirements and restraints (Design Inputs) are clear, we proceed to develop a Concept, which takes the shape of a preliminary, 2D or 3D simulation. Through a process of feedback loops and in-depth modelling, we build a more Detailed Design that finally goes through Review & Verification before being handed over to the customer for approval before the build phase. Our Design and Engineering projects last anywhere between one week to several months.
Testing is conducted at Reliance Hexham’s premises, as well as on site in some cases, and our experienced and certified personnel use advanced testing and precision equipment to ensure the maximum reliability of our results.
All Welding Repairs completed by Reliance Hexham are thoroughly inspected by way of non-destructive testing methods such as magnetic particle or liquid dye penetrant testing.
