Using an automated Eddy Current tester, we have improved the turn around time for wheels going into NDT, alongside a dedicated Eddy Current bolt tester to further improve turn around time. We also Eddy current all wheels, every visit, which makes it easier to catch problems earlier, and before they cause component failures.
A dedicated Magnetic Particle Inspection bench that uses the continuous wet method to check for imperfections in the material, this is alongside a hand held yoke aerosol magnaflux for inspection of specific areas.
Specialized Liquid Penetrant Inspection room that houses custom built equipment to perform and LPI, including black lights, tanks that can service large items and a crane system to easily move items between stations. The use of a electrostatic gun saves on time and penetrant compared to a submerging tank. Emulsifier that is non-time sensitive and hydrophobic. Use of an hot water developer to both draw out any remaining penetrant while drying itself to save time without sacrificing the ability to inspect the item.
