Prof.Dr.Morsy Amin MorsyAboKhalah
Head of joining-techniques-ndt Department
The Welding technology and NDT department in CMRDI began its activities officially since 1984 in the cooperation with societies, universities, companies, national and international research institutes like the national institute, IIW, Osaka university of Japan, British welding institute, Russian Peyton institute and JICA etc. aiming to support the different national & international industrial aspects with the latest welding & NDT technologies.
The Department has a wide range of activities in both research and application fields which are considered the main references in the Arabian and African markets for the huge industrial and maintenance projects.
The department offers a pool of expertise in many fields such as welding technology, surface and mechanical properties improvements in addition to the evaluation services and investigation stages including mechanical testing, non destructive testing, XRF analysis, replica testing, life assessment, failure analysis, repair and reclamation, etc., beside the long term experiences; such services are supported too with the latest methods and equipments to assure the exact results.
The non destructive inspection & life assessment section is one of main experiences that recognize our department activities including ASNT NDT methods, XRF analysis, Replica test and life assessment etc., which has been conducted to many individual and national projects such as Suez Canal Bridge, Alex library, Egyptian museum, fertilizers, chemical and petrochemical plants in addition to the maintenance stages in most of Egyptian power plants, Cairo Subway Company, Military production companies, etc., beside the long term experiences; such services are supported too with the latest technology and equipments to assure the exact neutral results which assisted the confidence of conducting the department experiences as a third party in executing inspections and diagnosis for many critical national and individual projects.
- Infra structure of Wagons in railway transportation and metro train.
- Infra structure of Electric Car manufacture.
- Introduction of hybrid laser technology in Egypt industry. Establishment of WPS and PQR for nuclear reactor used in Electric station.
- Egypt presentation in international institute of welding as authorized national body (ANB).
- Infra structure of solar energy used in Electric generation.

Welding Department conducts many Researches covering many welding materials such as ductile iron casting, heat resistant steels, duplex stainless steels, maraging steels and 9% Ni steel, beside the different alloys such as aluminum alloys, nickel base alloys, titanium alloys, copper alloys, similar and dissimilar alloys. In addition to surface and mechanical properties improvements through for example surface coating of materials using oxyacetylene, arc spray and plasma spray by micro and Nano-powders which are also studied in the repair of crank shafts and turbines. Lately the department conducts many researches to manufacture and develop special electrodes for welding and repair of special materials.
