Essential Foundry Capabilities: Non-Destructive Testing

Aug 24, 2021

To ensure proper quality, performance, and specifications, essential foundry capabilities include non-destructive testing. Integral to investment casting best practices are high-tech inspection and testing. These procedures can confirm that all standards and expectations are being met in the process or identify issues that must be addressed. Deficiencies can be observed that may otherwise be invisible to the naked eye. Many such issues are deep within the structure of the parts. Among the many non-destructive tests that can be used are spectrographic analysis, ultrasonic testing, corrosion testing, radiographic testing (RT), mechanical testing, and magnetic particle inspection (MPI), to name just a few.
