Summer travel season is approaching-for better or worse-and I have several e-tickets sitting in my inbox again. Like many post-Memorial Day travelers, I will be going to Florida. However, unlike most of them, my destination is a manufacturing facility of Lockheed Martin.
Kreisler Industries, manufacturer of tube and manifold assemblies for aircraft engines, meets its quality requirements in part through borescope inspection. The company uses Gradient Lens Corp.’s Hawkeye Precision borescopes to inspect weld joints, to ensure the quality of the weld is acceptable and that the part is flight-worthy.
A tensile test determines how a subject will react while being pulled apart, or, more formally, when a force is applied to it in tension. Industrially, it provides manufacturers with a quick and cost-effective method of assessing quality in production, and designers a tool to physically characterize the functionality of products.
In January of this year, the American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) conducted a member survey to ascertain, in a general sense, the satisfaction of its membership with existing programs, products and services. And, further, to identify those programs, products and services that members think the society should be providing
The digital imaging market spaces are mostly serviced by charge-coupled device (CCD), complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS), and flat panel image sensor technologies. Each technology serves specific markets with certain advantages.
Eddy current inspection can offer significant, practical advantages over other inspection techniques in certain situations. Unlike ultrasonic inspection, there is no need for any couplant; it can be used on wet surfaces and there is no need for consumables, unlike dye penetrant, wet film radiography and magnetic particle inspection (MPI) techniques.
