WeldCore® is a locally developed (Proudly South African) material sampling and repair technology for the power generation- and petro-chemical industry. This technology is a result of 15 years of research at Nelson Mandela University, which through the efforts of the eNtsa team received international accreditation from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). This friction taper hydro-pillar welding and repair process has saved the local power generation and petro-chemical industries billions of rands. This status has sanctioned the application of the technology in high integrity plants and equipment designed and manufactured accordance of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC).



Mantacor is a spin-off company established by Nelson Mandela University to commercialise the WeldCore® and related technologies, developed by eNtsa staff and students. Mantacor’s services portfolio will assist the power generation and petro-chemical industry to determine and manage the safe operating lifetime of critical plant components.
