Customized Nondestructive Testing Equipment

Automotive Industry

Structural Diagnostics Inc. specializes in producing custom, nondestructive testing systems for the automotive industry, including systems for inspections of turbines, axels, and pistons, with high through puts and demanding inspection requirements with automotive gauge R & R acceptance level.

A malfunction of a component, however small, can have catastrophic consequences and usually it is the test and measurement quality control group people who would be directly held responsible.

SDI manufactures special systems that are produced for the inspection of compressed gas cylinders and aluminum linings of compressed natural gas fuel tanks, both before and after winding with composite elements.

NDT plays a crucial role in testing case hardened components used in automobiles, including crankshafts, camshafts, roller bearing and ball bearings that require tight tolerance limits. Our nondestructive testing solutions will meet the critical requirements of your application and deliver productivity and quality. These systems include:

SDI’s 3-D composite systems are renowned for being amongst the easiest to use with the widest range of capability.

A range of special attachments or cavity scanners are available for access into restricted areas. Special software is available for applications such as the inspection of tight radii, requiring minimal programming.

This pulse echo inspection method is able to detect included artificial brass defects and other foreign objects and display them accurately using both back-wall echo and echo-amplitude techniques.

Other special software includes the capability to perform full, 3-D contour inspection using a 7-axis system with a turntable.

SDI offers a comprehensive program of system upgrades adding 3-D capability to systems manufactured by ourselves and our competitors. The accurate surface mapping and 3-D visualization of the SDI software aid in defect interpretation.
