NDT Traceability Article in Quality Magazine

Testing, Trust and Traceability.inddAn article from Laboratory Testing Inc. entitled “Testing, Trust, and Traceability” was published in the August 2016 issue of Quality Magazine. NDT Manager Rich Goodwin and NDT Technology Coordinator Phil Trach co-wrote the article which explains the role nondestructive testing (NDT) plays in ensuring the quality of finished parts and the importance of traceability when testing those parts. Maintaining a link between the parts, the accompanying documentation and the testing they received is extremely important to the manufacturer and to the end user, as it is often the only proof that the material was actually tested.

Preserving Traceability During Inspection

RichGoodwinThe article focuses on the steps required to preserve traceability through four different Nondestructive Testing processes: Liquid Penetrant Testing, Magnetic Particle Inspection, Ultrasonic Testing and Radiographic Inspection. Each inspection process can detect surface and sub-surface defects without affecting the operating performance of the inspected products.

Phil T 2The authors emphasize the importance of maintaining traceability throughout the inspection processes and provide guidelines on how this is done, including the following:

  • An initial receipt inspection is completed.
  • During testing, parts are clearly identified, kept separated and marked as either accepted or rejected according to predetermined specifications and standards.
  • The customer receives a test certificate with all relevant inspection information to clearly show the link between the material and the tests results.
