Radiograhic Inspection

X-Ray of castings, electronics, welds, composite materials and a variety of other products is our greatest capability.


Penetrant Inspection

Visible Dye and Flourescent Penetrant Inspections are utilized. Welds, castings, inservice fatigue crack detection and (with pre-penetrant etch) machined parts are processed.

Magnetic Particle Inspection

Wet Fluorescent Magnetic Particle Inspection is performed usimg a 6,000 Amp (FWDC, 3 Phase) stationary unit that can test parts up to 12 ft in length.

Pressure Test

Air, Dry-Nitrogen, oil and water are mediums used for leak and proof pressure testing.



Eddy Current Inspection

Discontinuities are detected with custom made ET probes. EDM notched calibration standards per alloy/temper are used for known defect standards.

Positive Material ID

We can determine the exact chemistry of your material and, in most cases, tell you the specification and grade of the material.

Metallographic Cross-Section

A cross section sample is obtained and then etched to reveal the inner structure of the weld. 

Tensile Test

A sample is obtained from a weld plate and then machined into a tensile test specimen using a vertical mill. 

Bend Test

Bend tests for ductility provide a simple way to evaluate the quality of materials by their ability to resist cracking or other surface irregularities during one continuous bend

Charpy V-Notch Test

The Charpy V-notch test, is a standardized high strain-rate test which determines the amount of energy absorbed by a material during fracture.

Classroom Training

Training to fit your schedule. Our facility and equipment used for training. On-site training is also available.
