Non-destructive testing (NDT)

NDT is used to detect surface defects in a range of metals and non-porous materials. Our machines use a combination of automation and manual operation to provide a streamlined and maintainable process. NDT can be used on a range of components, primarily in the aerospace industry.

What is non-destructive testing (NDT)?

NDT is used to detect surface defects in a range of metals and non-porous materials. The most common of which is fluorescent penetrant inspection (FPI), also known as penetrant flaw detect (PFD)

What can non-destructive testing be used for?

NDT is used on a range of components, primarily in the aerospace industry, for example, engine parts, aerostructures, wheel hubs, brake parts, landing gear. It is also used on automotive components.

How does non-destructive testing work?

Turbex’s lines use a combination of automation and manual operation to provide a streamlined and maintainable NDT process.
