Advanced Testing in Our Laboratory or in the Field

Nondestructive testing (NDT) includes a number of analysis techniques used to evaluate the properties of a material, part, product, weld, or system without causing damage to the article being evaluated. NDT techniques are frequently used in a variety of engineering applications, including forensic, mechanical, electrical, civil, systems, aerospace and aeronautical, as well as medical applications.

NDT techniques do not damage or permanently alter the article being inspected, making them efficient and cost-effective analysis methods in product evaluation, troubleshooting and research. NDT techniques are particularly useful in ensuring the quality of finished products when employed during critical stages of the manufacturing or fabrication process.
