With the increasing focus on quality and compliance in the industrial manufacturing sectors, there has been a substantial hike in the demand for flaw detection related to cracks, porosity, manufacturing disorders, and so on. As a result, the innovation in robust non-destructive testing (NDT) technologies has been rather swift. Organizations all around the world are incorporating advanced NDT technologies to diagnose and optimize their critical equipment.
Take magnetic particle testing, for instance, which is helping organizations to identify imperfections in a material based on the disruptions in the flow of the magnetic field within the material. This method is being used for location of surface breaking and slight sub-surface defects such as cracking, pores, cold lap, and lack of sidewall fusion in welds in magnetic materials, to name a few.
Similarly, eddy current inspection method is being used for a variety of purposes including flaw detection, material and coating thickness measurements, material identification, and establishing the heat treatment condition of certain materials. The changes are shown on a screen and are interpreted to identify defects. Moreover, drones and crawling robots are also being used for corrosion inspection of the above-ground storage tanks (ASTs) and different off-shore locations where it is nearly impossible for any human intervention.
At this juncture, many NDT companies are entering the domain with advanced and integrated offerings. To help the manufacturing sector strengthen its operational capabilities and simultaneously enable growth in the industry, Manufacturing Outlook has compiled a list of the top non-destructive testing companies. The list comprises prominent organizations in the industry that address issues pertinent to the manufacturing sector by implementing current trends. Besides, the magazine also includes insights from thought leaders in the sector on the industry trends, best practices, recent innovations, and their advice for aspiring CIOs and CXOs.
We present to you Manufacturing Outlook’s “Top 10 Non-Destructive Testing Companies – 2021.”
