Non Destructive Testing of Investment Castings
There are numerous advantages to using Investment castings which is why they are so commonly used in industrial and mission critical applications. When manufacturing these products, it is important to verify the casting quality both on the surface and inside the part to ensure cracks, voids (porosity) and other defects are not present. Defects such as these can cause the part to fail during use or wear out pre-maturely. Non-destructive testing (NDT) is a type of testing commonly performed on investment castings to ensure the finished products comply with the defined quality standards. NDT consists of testing the parts in a way that does not ruin or distort the part. American Casting Company is highly experienced in providing Non Destructive Testing services that meet industry standards such as AMS and NADCAP (National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program).
