Why using RT is Best for Industrial NDT
*This blog is part of a much larger pillar post.Industrial NDT, or non-destructive testing, is often done in industrial environments to help guarantee that a company’s process is producing results that are of high-quality and safe for the end user and surrounding areas.Typically, when people think of industrial NDT, they think of hand gages and […]
What is Radiographic Testing (RT)?
At Matter Fabs, we provide safety solutions for nondestructive testing (NDT) using radiographic testing (RT) for a variety of industries. NDT using RT is the process of inspecting and evaluating components like casting, welds, and vessels for any problems or differences in design intent characteristics without destroying the part. The components’ entire material can be […]
Options For NDT Companies That Lease Space
Non-destructive testing (NDT) companies sometimes find themselves restricted when wanting to add a larger KV or MV testing vault to an existing facility because they do not own the building. These larger NDT vaults become a permanent part of the building. When renting or leasing the building, the building owner generally prohibits companies from adding […]
