The certification of Liebherr Transportation Systems (China) was conducted by TÜV SÜD. In August 2022 Liebherr had launched the application procedure for obtaining the welding certificate, and it took the Liebherr-team only 7 months to set up a well-developed welding control system based on the standard requirement of total quality management.

The process was divided into four steps: Establishment, implementation, management and testing of a welding system, which also refers to the design and procurement aspects for the system’s framework.

Liebherr Transportation Systems (China) optimizes the whole welding process continuously to ensure that every step of the process is precise and efficient. The testing and certification organization evaluated the welding process at Liebherr’s facility in Pinghu in accordance with the requirements of the standard EN 15085 and issued the certificate recognizing the superior standard of the newly established welding control system.

Andreas Walter, General Manager of Liebherr Transportation Systems (China) Co., Ltd., points out: “With the certification in place, our welding control system is meeting local and international market requirements. It also enables us to check in detail the quality of welding work performed by our suppliers based on our drawings.”
