Non-destructive testing (NDT) is a wide group of analysis techniques used in science, medicine and industry to evaluate the properties of a material, component or system without causing damage. The terms Non-Destructive Examination (NDE), Non-Destructive Inspection (NDI), and Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) are also commonly used to describe this technology.
Because NDT does not permanently alter the article being inspected, it is a highly-valuable technique that can save both money and time in product evaluation, troubleshooting, and research. Common NDT methods that Vertest can employ include ultrasonic, magnetic-particle, liquid penetrant, radiographic, vibration analysis Remote Visual Inspection (RVI) and eddy-current testing.
NDT is a commonly-used tool in forensic engineering, automotive manufacturing, structural engineering mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, civil engineering, systems engineering, aeronautical engineering and medicine.
