7 Ultrasonic Technology-Related Facts You May Not Know

The use of ultrasonic measurement technology is fast becoming one of the most effective and reliable ways to get an accurate picture of certain aircraft components, systems and the materials that go into making them. And although many outside the field of...

A Brief History of the Equipment used in Non Destructive Testing

As we have written on this blog before, the history of non destructive testing goes back quite some time. Civilizations such as the ancient Greeks and Chinese used relatively unsophisticated methods of testing the integrity of certain items without damaging them. But...

Types of Ultrasonic Testing

The aerospace industry uses a wide variety of testing methods to ensure the safety of all aircraft systems and parts. The most effective of which is Ultrasonic Testing (UT) which utilizes a series of high-frequency ultrasonic waves to identify flaws in materials. This...

Flaw Detection: The Basics

Among all the applications of industrial ultrasonic testing there are, flaw detection is perhaps the most commonly used and some say most efficient technique there is. This application uses high frequency sound waves that are reflected from an object’s flaws and that...

The Top NDT Schools and Nondestructive Training in the Country

There is no question that nondestructive technology (NDT) is growing by leaps and bounds as an industry. In fact, just four short years ago the market was valued a $12 billion and it has now grown to nearly $18 billion dollars. Thus, NDT is not only an efficient way...

The Evolution and History of Nondestructive Testing

Non-destructive testing (NDT) is a way to detect and evaluate flaws in materials without causing harm to those materials. It is an invaluable tool within the aerospace sector as it plays a vital role in the design, manufacture and maintenance of aircraft. Moreover,...

5 Benefits of Non Destructive Testing

Non-destructive testing – or testing that doesn’t damage the tested product – as been around in one form or another since 1895, when German physicist Wilhelm Conrad Rontgen first invented the X-ray. And just as X-ray technology has been proven to yield...

Nondestructive Testing: Methods and Definition

NDT – an analysis technique used by industry to evaluate the properties of a material, component, structure or system without causing damage – is a more comprehensive field than many non-technician can imagine. Indeed, there are several different methods...
