The Non Destructive Tests is a group of analytical techniques used to control and guarantee the internal/external soundness of a material or component. Some of these techniques allow to define the real volume of defects within the parts, offering very precise information on their state.
The contribution of the Non Destructive Tests to the different areas of IK4-AZTERLAN allows to improve the design and development phases of certain components, the set up and optimization of manufacturing processes, as well as a correct follow up of research and development programs.
IK4-AZTERLAN provides a recognized experience and expertise on the different NDT techniques performed with the latest technologies available in the market.
The following Non Destructive Tests are carried out in IK4-AZTERLAN, among others:
1. Ultrasound test (on-site tests).
2. Magnetic Particle testing.
3. X-Ray radioscopy and computerized axial Tomography.
4. Dye Penetrant Inspections.
