Inspection and Nondestructive Testing for the Aviation Industry
NDT is one of the most effective tools in preventing problems in aviation and aerospace applications. Aviation inspection & NDT services can be performed throughout the working life cycle of an aircraft without affecting the integrity of the item or component being tested.
U.S. Inspection & NDT’s highly-skilled technicians use the latest technology to identify defects in structural and surface components on aircraft that may otherwise go undetected. The use of component-specific NDT methods to discover hidden internal and external flaws while inspecting aircraft structure is critical to the safety of the vehicle and the passengers and crew aboard.
Our precision aviation inspection & NDT techniques can detect a variety of defects, such as:
When Should Aviation Inspection & NDT be Used?
NDT can be used from the development phases of materials, during construction and throughout the lifetime of an aircraft.
If you’re preparing to build a new aircraft, our tests can help you determine if a material is suitable for use. During the manufacturing process, we can ensure that all materials and joinings meet performance and durability standards. Once the craft is in service, NDT can be used as a regular maintenance tool to detect and correct any potential structural or component problems before they occur.
