Many engineering jobs require a certain level of analysis before they can be carried out safely and successfully. Non-destructive testing is a way for engineering companies to carry out a wide group of analysis techniques. These techniques are used to evaluate the properties of a material, part, product, weld, or system without causing damage.
Non-destructive testing can be a highly valuable processes. It offers the opportunity to save both money and time in product evaluation, troubleshooting and research phases of development. Non-destructive testing can include various processes including some kinds of microscopy to examine external surfaces in detail, as well as using a high-speed camera recording to detect any failures.
Non-destructive testing is used in various different engineering spheres, including mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and civil engineering, as well as certain medical applications. Non-destructive testing services must be carried out in a format that complies with the various industry standards and governing laws.
