This article will list and explain why each magnetic particle inspection accessory is needed to validate the system performance of an inspection.
Whether you are in the automotive or aerospace industry, system performance checks are crucial for an optimal inspection. A system performance check needs to be run daily to validate the capability of the system to magnetize and create indications for examination. A standardized test piece, an example part with known defects, or a part with artificial defects attached to it, all can be used to perform the system performance check. Details of the procedure vary with the type and configuration of equipment being used.
