The term Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) gathers together a series of techniques for the inspection and evaluation of the integrity of components or structure. It is often not enough to choose only one survey method – instead, many techniques should be used, combined together. The non-destructive methods have different fields of application, and give different results depending on the information needed. Below is a summary of the techniques that we use:
- – Visual Testing VT
- – Magnetic Particle Inspection MPI
- – Liquid Penetrate Inspection LPI
- – Ultrasonic Testing UT
- – Hardness Testing HT
- – Magnetic Induction Testing MIT
These are techniques carried out by qualified technicians, guaranteeing a correct identification of the necessary test plan, the correct execution of the procedure and the correct reading of the data collected.
Our Imola Gru operators are 2nd level NDT qualified technicians, following standard EN ISO 9712:2012.
Imola Gru carries out Non-Destructive Testing directly at the customer’s location, with certified equipment. At the end of every test, for each piece of equipment, a report of the examination is produced, complete with photographic documentation prepared by the specialised operator showing the results of the tests conducted.
For customers under contract, all certificates are archived in the Imola Gru Extranet Area, and are immediately consultable and downloadable.
