Non-Destructive Testing & Inspection

What is Non-Destructive Testing (NDT)?

Non-destructive testing (NDT) provides quality control for various materials without damaging the integrity of the product or metal. NDT saves you time and money by eliminating faulty or compromised parts before they go through further processing. Our testing services identify areas of concern before failure occurs, increasing the product's overall reliability.

American Metal Testing helps you reduce product waste through non-destructive testing methods. Our process ensures quality without altering the integrity or usefulness of the tested component. We are a NADCAP-accredited testing lab and will meet your specifications while exceeding your expectations.

What Are the Non-Destructive Testing Methods?

Non-destructive testing provides highly accurate, repeatable results and allows multiple tests to correlate those results. At American Metal Testing, we offer a wide range of testing methods and inspection services, including:

  • Magnetic Particle Testing - This NDT process detects surface and slightly subsurface discontinuities in ferromagnetic materials such as iron, nickel, cobalt, and other alloys.
  • Radiographic Film Testing - This NDT method uses x-rays to inspect the component internally for shrink, cracks, inclusions, and much more.
  • Fluorescent Penetrant Testing - This NDT procedure is suited for testing components requiring a surface free from cracks, inclusions, porosity, or other surface flaws too small to be found during visual inspections. We use a level-3 high-sensitivity penetrant.

Industrial Applications for Non-Destructive Evaluation & Testing

Our non-destructive testing capabilities allow us to work with materials, components, and parts for industrial applications within most industrial sectors, including military and aerospace. Our testing is carried out by NADCAP-accredited experts who can meet your exact specifications and guidelines.

What are the Benefits of Non-Destructive Testing?

NDT Services for Metal Castings

All metal casting is done with the utmost care, including non-destructive testing. Problems with soundness, surface finish, mechanical attributes, and final dimensions can all impact the quality of a casting. By taking advantage of our NDT services, you can be confident that your casting meets your standards and will perform as designed.

NDT Services for Machine Parts

You need to know that your machine parts will work as expected. Failure in even the most minor components can have catastrophic results. By completing your NDT process with American Metal Testing, you can find imperfections, flaws, and vulnerabilities before a problem occurs.
