Process Step 8 – Investment Casting Testing & Inspection

Jan 31, 2017


Before castings leave the foundry, they are subject to high-tech testing and inspection to ensure that they meet the necessary standards and specifications. This is a crucial step in the production process because it can detect deficiencies that may not be visible to the eye. Depending on customer preferences, a wide range of non-destructive testing is available from ultrasonic testing, spectrographic analysis and corrosion testing to mechanical testing, radiographic testing (RT), magnetic particle inspection (MPI) and much more.
