They’ll answer questions about mechanical properties, material composition, flaws and inconsistencies, corrosion resistance and more.
Nondestructive Testing (NDT)
Our equipment has the capacity to handle tubing, pipe, barstock, castings and other products of almost any size and shape. Certified NDT specialists perform the testing that provides customers with information about surface and subsurface inconsistencies, flaws and weaknesses without damaging their test material.
- X-ray Inspection
- Ultrasonic Testing
- Hydrostatic Pressure Testing
- Liquid Penetrant Testing
- Magnetic Particle Inspection
- Visual Inspection
When metal components fail to perform as expected, our materials engineers can help you understand the reason why. Testing and analysis will help them get to the root of the problem. You’ll receive a comprehensive failure analysis report listing all findings from our failure investigation and our recommendations for preventing a recurrence.
For convenience, let our machinists prepare high quality, economical specimens for your testing from metals and many plastics. We strictly adhere to specified industry standards and customer specifications for all specimen machining.
Third-party and first-article inspections are performed on machined products, parts and fasteners to verify measurements using CMM and conventional methods, including:
- Surface Dimensions
- Internal and External Threads
- Special Product Features
Our calibration laboratory calibrates all types of masters, gages and measuring tools to verify that the items meet their performance specifications. Many additional instruments are calibrated on-site including surface plates, microscopes, balances, ovens, temperature controllers, optical comparators and more. Repairs, replacement parts and new instruments are also provided. All calibration services are NIST-traceable and performed with reliable accuracy and timely turnaround.
On-site fume hoods, biosafety cabinets, filtered fan units, clean rooms and more are tested and certified to current version standards. These Contamination Control Certification Services include NIST-traceable calibration certificates, 24-7 technical support and on-site service scheduled directly with a field technician.
