Testia inspector checking the image result of an X-ray inspectionBenefit from Testia’s decades of experience in aerospace with our services for other industry sectors. Our inspection personnel brings the necessary qualifications according to EN ISO 9712 and many years of professional practice in the industry, to offer you reliable and responsive service in all non-destructive testing methods.

The range of different NDT methods can cover a large spectrum of applications in many industrial fields, such as:

  • Energy
  • Automotive
  • Marine
  • Metal industry
  • Additive Manufacturing
  • Plant engineering, electronic components
  • Building services engineering / Technical building services

We would be glad to consult you on the different fields of application and on our range of services. Further down on this page you may find an overview of typical use cases for the various ISO 9712 NDT methods. This overview can also be downloaded as a brochure (PDF).

PT

Penetrant Testing (PT)

Fast and cost-efficient inspection of surface defects or porosity

Suited for: non-porous materials like plastic or metal

Typical industry use cases for this method:

  • Pipes and containers
  • Welds (e.g. on ships and pipes)
  • Valves
  • Turbine parts
MT

Magnetic Particle Testing (MT)

Inspection of surface and sub-surface discontinuities. Also suited for complex part geometries and unmachined surfaces.

Suited for: ferromagnetic metals, cast parts

Typical industry use cases for this method:

  • Pipes and containers
  • Welds (e.g. on ships and pipes)
  • Valves
  • Industrial plants
RT

Radiography Testing (RT & RT-D)

Detection of defects within parts, for example on welds and composites

Suited for: metals, cast parts, additive manufactured parts, composites, ceramics

Typical industry use cases for this method:

  • Welds (e.g. on ships and pipes)
  • Electronic components
  • Complex printed parts
  • Industrial plants
CT

Computed Tomography Testing (CT)

High-definition analysis of defects on surface and inside of parts with complex geometries.

Suited for: metals, cast parts, additive manufactured parts, composites, ceramics

Typical industry use cases for this method:

  • Dimensional checks (CAD & real part in comparison)
  • Complex printed parts
  • Electronic components
  • Pore content analysis
UT

Ultrasonic Testing (UT)

High-precision detection of defects deep within parts, even at small scale.

Suited for: metals and alloys

Typical use cases for this method:

  • Welds (e.g. on ships and pipes)
  • Thickness measuring
  • Pressure vessels and pipes
  • Metallic tubes and rails
ET

Eddy Current Testing (ET)

Surface inspection of delamination, thickness and conductivity.

Suited for: conductive materials

Typical industry use cases for this method:

  • Incoming goods inspection (material recognition)
  • Metallic tubes and rails
IRT

Infrared Thermography Testing (TT)

Sub-surface delamination and cracks detection; detection of material discontinuities (thickness differences), localisation of repairs, repaints or hidden parts; localisation of water inclusions

Suited for: almost all materials (with certain restrictions)

Typical industry use cases for this method:

  • Thermal stress
  • Building services engineering
  • Water ingress
VT

Visual Inspection (VT)

Surface inspection for quick damage detection; with or without the assistance of optical devices

Suited for: all surfaces

Typical industry use cases for this method:

  • Countless applications, often in combination with other ISO 9712 methods
