The Resonance Acoustic Method (RAM) is a long-standing nondestructive test (NDT) that measures the structural responses of a part. These responses are a set of unique and measurable natural frequency (resonance) data.
2D Radiography (x-ray), a Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) method, is applied in a multitude of manufacturing, repair industries, and in every type of inspection program. 2D X-ray is the most used NDT method outside of visual inspection.
Flaws can be found in every type of material and component, no matter the method of manufacturing, processing, or finishing used. Selecting the proper detection method is crucial, because, even if a flaw is not actually a defect, you still want to be able to detect and evaluate them.
The aerospace industry uses nondestructive testing (NDT) methods quite extensively. The structural integrity and safety of nearly all components, especially the most critical ones, needs to be validated and NDT plays a major role. NDT is required in virtually all areas of newly manufactured, serviced, repaired, or overhauled inspections.
Remote visual inspection (RVI) is a nondestructive testing (NDT) technique used for the visual inspection of an object where the person performing the inspection operates a piece of equipment from a distance. Most of the inspection applications used for quality purposes are carried out using three main types of equipment: borescopes, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), and crawler robots. Find out more about their uses and advantages.
Medical devices, both the actual equipment and patient hardware, are some of the most regulated items in all of industry. Medical manufacturers are held to the highest of standards and these typically equal, and can even exceed, the aerospace and nuclear sectors.
X-ray diffraction (XRD) is a nondestructive testing method that has been around for over 100 years. It is used in many industries and it has several specific applications that are very critical. So, what is it and how does it work?
