Non-Destructive Testing Services Expands Sorting & Containment Service

GRAND RAPIDS, MI-Non-Destructive Testing Services Inc. (NDTS), a full-service material inspection company and a wholly owned subsidiary of TUV Rheinland North America Holding Co., has recently added new equipment to its sorting and containment service.

“Most simple noncompliance issues are sorted by visual inspection. However, high-tech equipment allows us to more quickly determine the depth of the problem and resolve it quickly,” says Bob Bills, chief executive officer of Non-Destructive Testing Services Inc.

The new capabilities at NDTS include:

  • Computed radiography that digitally captures e-mailable X-ray images via the Kodak Industrex ACR2000i digital system.

  • A portable ultrasonic GE Krautkramer MIC-10 hardness tester, providing a quick nondestructive method of sorting heat-treated parts on location.

  • Automated real-time radiography for production-run capabilities, used for small castings, electronic components, missing bearings and crimped/ broken electrical connections.

  • Specialized automation utilizing conveyers.

    NDTS provides sorting at its laboratory or the customer’s facility, and also provides on-site emergency parts testing and quality assurance. The sorting and containment service is available 24 hours a day year-round as an expedited offering.

    NDTS specializes in sorting and assembly, ISO emergencies and salvage for the aerospace, automotive, foundries, food, military, welding (spot weld), electronic, steel mill, power generation and pharmaceutical markets.
