Key to Quality: NDT as a Lifelong Passion by Joseph Sorrentino
Nondestructive testing is one of my greatest passions, and has held great importance for me during my career.
When I entered into the United States Navy in 1963, I was sent to a nine-week training course on pipefitting and sheet metal work at the Naval Training Center in San Diego. During the course, I was first trained in how to mathematically lay out piping systems and sheet metal ventilation systems, then I was given exercises and a written and practical test of my knowledge.

Editor's Note: The Good Old Days At the risk of sounding 50 years older than I am, it seems that they don't make cars like they used to. Or at least according to my automotive technician, cars today aren't what they used to be, and my car specifically.
A growing number of application specialists are turning to a highly adaptable and flexible technology of high-speed low coherence interferometry to obtain real-time high-resolution 3-D measurements as well as surface mapping and characterization. Choosing an optimal NDT method for a lab or industrial application involves considerations such as:
sample size, shape and material
the speed and degree of precision required in the measurements
the ease of use and flexibility of the inspection technology in the target environment LEARN MORE
The capability of X-ray computed tomography (CT) to extract multiple slices from an object and then develop a 3-D-reconstructed volumetric image has proven to be a powerful tool in quality control. The technique can be used in different branches of industry where conventional radiography fails to reveal all the hidden flaws because of the inherent complications of X-ray beam alignment.
