Introduction to non-destructive testing

Non-destructive tests such as radiography and magnetic particle inspection help identify internal faults in the material

In the metal shaping and welding fields, the metal undergoes two types of strain: temperature and deformation. As a result, non-destructive testing is the best structural testing method to use because it does not damage the manufactured products during testing.
Some of the most frequently used non-destructive tests are radiography, ultrasound test, magnetic particle and induced current inspection methods, tests using penetrating liquids and, finally, visual checks.
Each one of these non-destructive tests has special characteristics that make it more or less usable in different situations; we can, in fact, use them to localise surface faults, discontinuity, inclusions, cavities, structure defects. As an example, the use of penetrating liquids is useful for identifying cracks that move from the surface to the inside of unions.
Each detail that is sent from our warehouses is EN 10204 certified, which in some cases can require the execution of non-destructive testing.
