Non-destructive Evaluation

Non-destructive test (NDT) is the process of inspecting, testing, or assessing materials, components or assemblies for discontinuities in characteristics without destroying the serviceability of the part or system.

Today modern non-destructive tests are used in manufacturing, fabrication and in-service inspections to ensure product integrity and reliability, to control manufacturing processes, lower production costs and to maintain a uniform quality level. During construction, NDT is used to ensure the quality of materials and joining processes during the fabrication and erection phases, and in-service NDT inspections are used to ensure that the products in use continue to have the integrity necessary to ensure their usefulness and the safety of the public. It should be noted that the medical field also uses many of the same processes. We support NDT developments in the following area:

Eddy Current

Acoustic Emission

Tomography Software

Signal Analysis of NDT data

Image Analysis of NDT images

GMR sensor based NDT instrumentation

Magnetic Flux leakage testing.
