Non-destructive testing (NDT) is a highly effective way to detect the very smallest of imperfections or damage in aerospace materials or components throughout their operational life, without materially affecting the integrity of the item being tested.
Aerospace non-destructive testing can be used to detect defects such as geometrical faults, e.g. material thickness, welding defects, bondline defects, delamination, wrinkles, porosity, dry areas, foreign objects, cracks or corrosion. This enables customers to ensure their products integrity and reliability while in-service, which allows them to save both time and money when evaluating their products, troubleshooting or carrying out research.
