Non-destructive inspection has an important place both for manufacturing controls and for operating phase controls. Non-destructive inspection methods that are required for the disposal of appropriate products or for the continued use of appropriate products must be carried out in accordance with international norms. The most important point of these controls is the person who controls and evaluates. The personnel whose competencies are reported on most standards are required to be experienced, trained, successful and qualified from the specified examinations. As RM Mechatronics, we are pleased to cooperate to provide you with perfect service at this very point.

Non-Destructive Testing is one part of the function of Quality Control and is complementary to other long established methods.

By definition, non-destructive testing is the testing of materials, for surface or internal flaws or metallurgical condition, without interfering in any way with the integrity of the material or its suitability for service.

The technique can be applied on a sampling basis for individual investigation or may be used for 100% checking of material in a production quality control system. Whilst being a high technology concept, evolution of the equipment has made it robust enough for application in any industrial environment at any stage of manufacture – from steel making to site inspection of components already in service. A certain degree of skill is required to apply the techniques properly in order to obtain the maximum amount of information concerning the product, with consequent feedback to the production facility.

Non-destructive Testing is not just a method for rejecting substandard material; it isalso an assurance that the supposedly good is good. The technique uses a variety of principles; there is no single method around which a black box may be built to satisfy all requirements in all circumstances.

Non-destructive inspection has an important place both for manufacturing controls and for operating phase controls.

The documentation of non-destructive inspection personnel according to TS EN ISO 9712 is required for this certification.
